“This will mark the 5th Paint Your Pet event we’ve had with The Anti-Cruelty Society and it remains a crowd favorite. We receive calls from guests months in advance asking when the next one will be,” says Stephanie King-Myers, co-owner and COO of Bottle & Bottega. “It’s such a great cause and guests get to take home special keepsakes of their beloved pets—we just love being a part of it.”
