The Pet Adoption Fashion Show is an event that was dreamt up by child actor, Sean Martin. His goal was and still is to showcase adoptable animals that are currently in the shelter waiting on their fur-ever homes. K.A.S’s Fashion show has assisted in finding home for over 60 animals in the past 4 years.
Kids Adopt a Shelter is an animal support organization founded in 2011 by now 17-year-old Sean Martin, and was created after he collected donations for a local shelter. He realized that other shelters needed help as well, and found that many other children and families shared his passion. Kids Adopt a Shelter is now represented by children and families worldwide. Kids Adopt a Shelter’s mission is “To make sure every shelter, rescue and foster can keep animals comfortable while waiting to be adopted, with the help of fellow kids.” Kids Adopt a Shelter’s efforts include other seasonal and emergency donation drives.
