New York - For the second year, Frances Singer Hayward walked the runway in the “Paws for Style” Fashion Show in New York this time, in honor of ‘Amigo’ who died last September after succumbing to a brave battle with cancer.   The glamorous and star studded event, in aid of The Humane Society of New York has become a yearly favorite in the ‘city that never sleeps..’


New York - Wearing an elegant turquoise outfit by designer Jackie Rogers, and sporting a red satin “I LOVE AMIGO’ heart, specially designed by Ms. Rogers for the event, Ms. Singer-Hayward had as her ‘animal companion’ a Chihuahua from the Humane Society named “Becca” who is presently up for adoption.


“This was a very bittersweet night for me, filled with memories of Amigo and the fun we had last year” said Ms. Singer Hayward. “Amigo will always be my ‘soul and inspiration,’ in my devotion to my life’s calling of making the world a better place for animals…I can only pray that people will help fulfill his mission by being more sympathetic to the suffering of so many animals and of course by supporting organizations like The Humane Society of Grand Bahama -   for whom he was the mascot and ‘poster dog’ for so many years - and all Humane Societies throughout The Bahamas who work so heroically and tirelessly.


The Humane Society of Grand Bahama has recently opened a new, state of the art animal shelter, which features “Amigo’s Friendship Park,” which Ms. Singer Hayward describes as “a beautiful and befitting tribute to him…”
