Paws in the City hosts a Patio Pet Party

Tara Harper and Pamela Chao
Tara Harper wants you to know that she is a whole lot more than a pretty face on a (soon to air) reality TV show. All eyes are on Tara and 5 of her friends as the August 15th launch date looms for the new TV show, Most Eligible Dallas from Bravo.

The biggest priority in Harper's life is Paws in the City, an all-volunteer nonprofit organization committed to ending the abuse, neglect and overpopulation of Dallas area dogs and cats.  Harper serves as President for this organization and spends much of her time scampering around town saving animals and then finding them good homes.

The mission of Paws in the City mission is to save as many dogs and cats from being euthanized at the City of Dallas shelter as possible. Whether due to overcrowding and space being limited or because they have a treatable illness, they will take as many of the animals as they can into their foster program and find them loving forever homes.

Last night, Harper gathered her pals and their pooches for a Happy Hour soiree at McCormick & Schmick's for live music, drink specials, house made dog treats, and a special patio menu featuring hot dogs, hamburgers, and delicious fish tacos. Net proceeds benefited the charity.

Paws in the City is always looking for homes willing to foster these beautiful animals or families willing to adopt them. If you are interested in learning more about how to get involved, visit
