The ASPCA Teams Up With Ralph Lauren for Adopt a Shelter Dog Month

In conjunction with Adopt a Shelter Dog Month, Ralph Lauren has collaborated with the ASPCA to create The Dog Walk, a short film featuring rescue dogs from the ASPCA and the designer's Fall 2013 accessories collection. The film takes you on a virtual dog walk through the streets of New York City and Paris, with a few fun surprises along the way. 

From October 15 to November 15, 10 percent of the purchase price of select accessories and dog apparel* featured in the film will be donated to the ASPCA to support and raise awareness for shelter dog adoptions.  We're pleased to announce that all of the shelter dogs who starred in the film have since found forever homes and are thriving with their new families!

To watch the film and learn more, visit RalphLauren.com/TheDogWalk

* Ralph Lauren will donate 10 percent of the purchase price of all handbags, excluding pink pony handbags, sold at 888 Madison Ave on October 20, 2013, to the ASPCA.

That is amazing and I was so happy to see some bullies in the mix. People are so scared of the big lovable breed and I'm always so excited to see them getting positive press. I own two (both adopted) and they have changed my life for the better. I now won't adopt anything but a pit bull/mix. Such loving, well mannered and loyal dogs. Way to go RL!

This is wonderful, thank you for supporting rescue of animals from shelters. You have done a great service. Love the video, about to share. Again, sincere thanks for bring the plight of our animal friends to the public.

Thank you, Mr Lauren for stepping outside the box of fashion. Thank you for creating not only a very entertaining short film featuring your fabulous handbags but sharing adoptable pooches in need of a home as well. Kudos to you and thank you for your financial support as well.

It would be amazing if for once people who say they want to help animals would clarify that what they truly want to help are dogs and cats. This video is full of products made out of the skins of slaughtered animals. Why is it so great to help one animal while supporting the cruel treatment and death of another? Why eat or wear one and not the other? Just because you bring one into your home and not the other doesn't mean they feel any less physical and emotional pain. In fact, the cold truth is that dogs who die in shelters die so much more humanely than the animals you wear and eat.

Thank you for making this great video helping raise awareness for shelter dogs. It's wonderful to know all these great dogs now have forever homes and that sales of your beautiful accessories will help others.

Thank you Ralph Lauren and ASPCA for making The Dog Walk. It is so exciting to see the possibilities for this to happen each year and how wonderful that all dogs are now in forever homes. In these difficult times, it is so heart warming to help these beautiful dogs find their homes and show what great dogs are available at shelters. BRAVO and please do more !!!!!!
