If you’ve got a soft spot for sweets or puppies, tune in here on Saturday, Sept. 23 at noon. Dylan Lauren — founder of sweets emporium Dylan’s Candy Bar and it’s nonprofit arm, Dylan’s Candy BarN — partners with PAWS Chicago for this second annual Adopt-A-Sweetie event.
Free to attend, the event features a host of pups available for adoption through PAWS, the city’s largest No Kill animal shelter. Guests not looking for a pet can help by satisfying their sweet tooth: a percentage of all candy sales go to PAWS.
On our live stream, we’ll chat with Lauren and PAWS founder Paula Fasseas, show viewers the adorable pups looking for forever homes, and even talk to a couple who found their perfect pet at last year’s event.
Our stream wraps up at 1 p.m., which gives you time to get over to Dylan’s Candy Bar (445 N. Michigan) and check out the event (noon-4 p.m.) for yourself.
