The city’s largest no-kill animal shelter celebrated the dog days of summer with its 14th annual bash at Castaways on North Avenue Beach (1603 N. Lake Shore) July 14. The organization’s biggest beach party to date welcomed over 450 human guests, as well as 100 pups. The event was emceed by US99.5’s Lisa Dent and co-chaired by Andrew Tobin and Heather and Mark Yeager. While two-legged guests enjoyed cocktails, dinner and dancing, their four-legged friends were treated to a doggie buffet and spa and caricatures by an artist specializing in pet portraits. The night raised more than $350,000 to support PAWS.
