Are You Ready For Our 2015 Ugly Christmas Sweater Party Fundraiser?

Ugly Christmas Sweater Party with Kilo for Charity

Tis’ The Season…To Dress Up Your Dog In Ugly Christmas Sweaters.

Christmas is right around the corner. It’s a time to treasure family and friends, to celebrate and to give back. Nothing says Christmas quite like dressing up for parties and holiday photos so  I picked up a few Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Kilo the Pug. He is all ready to rock an Ugly Christmas Sweater Party LOL.

An Ugly Sweater used to be just that. The incredibly ugly, tacky seasonal sweater some relative made for you and expected you to wear at the family gathering.

Now they are the rage and we think they are too cute (the opposite of ugly). There are “Ugly Christmas Sweater” Parties and Ugly Christmas Sweaters for Dogs. There may be some pooches out there that still growl at these Holiday fashion choices, but Kilo says “fine..as long as there are treats” of course. His are very comfy and oh so stylish.

Thanks to everyone who shared a photo or let us take one at a recent event. We will donate $50 to Kilo’s rescue tomorrow.

Haven’t picked up your dog’s Ugly Christmas Sweater yet?

We were inspired by our friends at DogTipper who recently posted about a great auction celebrating funny holiday sweaters and supporting dogs in need.  Project Runway stars teamed up with UglyChristmasSweater.com for an auction running December 7th through December 18th. Fans and dog lovers can bid on the festive dog apparel with all proceeds benefiting Leave No Paws Behind, an all breed, all foster California-based non-profit that saves the lives of the most at-risk dogs– the elderly, the terminally ill and pets with special needs. What a fun way to support a great cause.

Here are a few other options:

    Dogs Luv Us and We Luv Them

  • Did companies mind that you mentioned their clothes as being appropriate for this contest? LOL The dogs are so cute. Good luck with your donation.

      Thanks Emmy- it’s not actually a contest and we don’t think they are ugly at all. We just like to get creative with rescue awareness and donations. The brands are very happy to be recommended in the shopping guide I believe as these sweaters are the height of fashion and adorable. I bought my two latest for Kilo from PetSmart as well as other fashions from several of the companies. They are comfy, warm and look great for photos.
