Meet our models

Dear Guests, we ask you to please leave your pets at home.

Loews L'Enfant Plaza Hotel is a pet-friendly hotel and so you can bring your animal there any time! However, because our show is comprised of so many different species, many of whom are prey animals, we are asking our guests not to bring their own animals. The show requires quite a bit of preparation for our models and may be stressful for them; we want to protect them from any additional stress of interactions with guests' animals. Thank you for your understanding.

What is Pets in Pearls? Pets in Pearls is an educational and entertaining animal fashion show designed to raise awareness of animal adoption organizations and to educate individuals about pet products. Dog halters, cat collars, rabbit carriers, bird accessories & state-of-the-art pet assistance products all the gear you need for your best friends!

The show consists of four themes:

  • Working animals
  • Medical and Health Aids
  • Training and Restraining
  • Leisurewear

Local rescue groups, rehabilitative organizations, training schools, and veterinarians have been consulted in preparation for this show.

The models are animals currently available for adoption as well as animals who have been rescued or adopted and are now in good homes.
