Our Mission & Vision

The mission of the Doggies on the Catwalk Foundation is two-fold. DOTC is a 501c 3 that provides financial assistance to non-profit organizations whose mission is to enhance the lives of individuals living with disabilities and other special needs, and to those organizations who provide safety and loving homes to animals in need. In addition to supporting non-profit organizations, because Doggies on the Catwalk was created in the classroom, we are committed to providing educational assistance through the form of grants to arts education and fashion design programs.

Our Values

  • We value the importance of being an advocate for those living with disabilities and special needs. 

  • We value the power of the human-animal bond and support finding loving homes for pets in need and those in need of service animals.  

  • We value the desire for students to be able to follow their dreams of obtaining a higher education and for them to know financial assistance is not a barrier.

Our Goals

  • To supply funding for 501c 3 organizations which provide assistance to those living with disabilities and pets in need.

  • To award scholarships to deserving Fashion Design students through the Fashionado SEAM Grant.

  • To partner with corporations, foundations and individuals who support and stand behind our mission and values.

  • To raise funds and awareness through the annual Doggies on the Catwalk event.
