‘Pup Up’ Shop Brought Out Celeb Dogs, Fans and LINES!

Looking to help spread the word about puppy mills, Friends of Finn, a nonprofit organization focused on stopping commercial breeding, held a “pup up” shop at The High Line Hotel on Saturday. And what a turn out!

With more than 500 RSVPs, the highlight of the event was definitely the celebrity dogs. People and pups flocked to the hotel to have their pics snapped with Tuna (Tuna Melts My Heart) Toast (Toast Meets World) and Finn (the “spokesdog” for Friends of Finn). This photo-opp brought the lines, as fans snaked around the hotel for their chance to meet these famous dogs.
