Paw Luxuries Magazine, the only magazine devoted to the world high-end pet products and luxury pet services, was featured on a Dateline NBC special entitled ÂPets Nation.Â Publisher Lauren Halperin spoke about the bond between people and their pets.
ÂPeople are treating their pets like they are worth their weight in gold,Â Halperin said on the special, which aired on Sunday, June 12, 2005. ÂPets do not care who you are, where you come from, what color skin you have or what religious background you have. When you walk in the door they are happy to see you.Â
Paw Luxuries Magazine was also featured on entertainment news programs Access Hollywood, E! News Live, Extra, and Good Day Live from their participation in the Silver Spoon Dog and Baby Buffet event in Los Angeles, California in April, 2005. The event brought out celebrity pet owners and their four-legged counterparts like Kimberly Steweart, Tara Reid, Jesse Metcalfe, Kelly Hu, Virginia Madsen, Melissa Rivers, Lacey Chabert, Debbie Matenopolous and more. The magazine was the sponsor of the event, which raised more than $10,000 for the Amanda Foundation. (Please contact for images of the event.)
ÂPeople are definitely taking note of Paw Luxuries,Â Halperin said of her publication. ÂItÂs easy to see the impact that pets have in the lives of those who own them and for many, that unlimited supply of affection and unconditional love is being rewarded with a fabulous lifestyle filled with beautiful accessories."
One thing Halperin is extremely proud of is the commitment to raising funds for animals in need and shedding light on those who accomplish the task through charity and events. At the Paw Luxuries launch event, the 2005 Walk for the Animals for the Broward County Humane Society, Florida, the event raised a jaw dropping $385,000 for pets in South Florida. In the summer issue of Paw Luxuries, the Paws for a Cause section featured notable names like Bob Barker and Michael Bloomberg and their efforts in the animal community, as well as events held by various animal sanctuaries and networks which raised close to $1 million for animals together.
