New York pet fashion show: Diva dogs in amazing costumes

These dashing dogs have been showing off their amazing costumes at the New York pet fashion show.
Each February, New York pet fashion show takes place – it's the largest pet fashion and animal rescue benefit in America. This year it took place at the historic Hotel Pennsylvania in Manhattan, New York.

The show features themed catwalk shows with dogs in costume walking alongside rescue dogs needing homes. It's all to raise money for the New York Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals. That's a charity that works with more than 150 rescue groups and shelters to save the lives of the city's homeless animals.
