Get involved and celebrate with us on a birthday pawty dedicated for your dogs. 

The big thing these days is to have a unique party to celebrate major life milestones—to have the kind of celebration that is talked about and remembered for a long time. But one young celebrity was recently honored with a one-of-a-kind party for which a name had to be invented as it was very different: it was a “pawty,” so named because her guests of honor were furry friends.

Janella Salvador, a young actress who recently celebrated her debut, has adopted six rescue dogs and four cats. Her friends and loved ones, mindful of this quiet passion of hers, decided to throw her a surprise birthday party with the help of StarStudio and Chalk Magazines, and Dogs in the City.

Surrounded by the animals she loved and her mom Jenine Desiderio, godmother Jamie Rivera, former leading man Marlo Martel, and good friend actress Michelle Vito.

Janella delighted in seeing her guests receive complimentary minor grooming and day care service for the night, with an unlimited pet buffet provided in collaboration with Vitality. A booth showcasing Dogs and the City’s wide array of products was also on display, featuring designer collars and leashes, stylish pet apparel, unique toys and treats, wide selection of shampoos and toiletries, fun feeding bowls, fabulous grooming accessories, and more. Guests got to bring home loot bags filled with treats and toys for their pets.

Staying true to its mission to be “the shopping destination for the most discerning pet owners,” Dogs and the City promises to enrich your pet’s lifestyle by offering upscale pet merchandise that is unique and functional. They also provide services to make sure that your pet is healthy and happy.
