The Times

Doll 10 Beauty, an internationally-selling cosmetics company based in Bucks County, is partnering with Women’s Humane Society, America’s first animal shelter, as sponsor of a free pet adoption event for the community.

The Dolls 4 Paws Adoption Event will feature family activities; the chance to try out Doll 10 makeup samples; face painting for the little dolls and dudes; food and refreshments. The main purpose of the event will be to place as many animals as possible into new homes. All adoption fees will be fully covered by Doll 10 Beauty in support of this lifesaving initiative, as the shelter continues to face an influx of homeless animals throughout the summer and into the fall season.

“Never take time for granted. Animal shelters across the country are filled with pets who need our time. Every year, ‘time is up’ for millions of them, and the time for us to make a difference is now,” said Dr. Doris Dalton, founder of Doll 10 Beauty and former Mrs. America titleholder. “Ignoring the problem doesn’t make it go away, because the battle for abandoned animals is never over.”

In addition to waived adoption fees, all Dolls 4 Paws event-day adoptions include spaying or neutering, vaccinations, microchip, flea/tick treatment, free and discounted veterinary services, adoption gift bags, and, of course, unconditional love and companionship.

“Women’s Humane Society assists thousands of animals in need throughout the region each and every year, but receives no federal, state or local funding to do so,” noted Cathy Malkemes, chief executive officer for the Women’s Humane Society. “We rely upon the generosity of our community to support our work, so to have a corporate partner like Doll 10 is truly invaluable to us, to our animals.”

The partnership between Doll 10 Beauty and Women’s Humane Society bears deeper meaning for the two organizations — in that both were founded and continue to be governed by women. Doll 10’s cruelty-free commitment to compassion for all animals is likewise important. Caroline Earle White, founder of America’s First Animal Shelter, also established the first American organization dedicated to ending the use of animals in science, education and research.

The Dolls 4 Paws Adoption Event will take place on Sept. 15 from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Interested adopters can access applications and information on some of the currently adoptable dogs, cats and small domestic animals via the Women’s Humane Society’s website.

The Women’s Humane Society is located at 3839 Richlieu Road in Bensalem, and can be reached by phone at 215–750–3100. For additional information, please visit www.womenshumanesociety.org.
