Purses & Pumps for Pooches & Pals


The 12th annual Purses & Pumps for Pooches & Pals event will be held on June 22, 2017 at the Humane Society of Missouri’s NEW Best Buddy Center in Maryland Heights!

Each year, more than 400 professional women come out to enjoy a fun evening of networking, cocktails, hors d’ouevres and a designer purse and shoe raffle. Past events have included items from Gucci, Prada, Louis Vuitton and many more! Best of all, we raise much-needed funds to help homeless Missouri animals!

Proceeds benefit the Humane Society of Missouri’s Animal Cruelty Fund, dedicated to investigating, healing, and preventing animal abuse.
