Henry and Stanley Yanowitz – Faces of Puttin’ On The Leash 2020

Henry is a dapper, 9 year-old coonhound mix. With age comes refinement, and Henry enjoys the simpler things in life, like munching on frozen broccoli and slurping from the ivory bowl.

Stanley is a whole lot of dog in a little Basset-Beagle body! His short legs move him remarkably fast towards whatever smells the wind brings his way. He enjoys the flavor of colorful rugs and bringing joy to those around him with his adorable antics.

Stanley and Henry are both the beloved companions of HSBV supporter, Sarah Yanowitz, and the inspiration for saving thousands of lives at Puttin’ On The Leash! We are thrilled to have these two hounds represent what the evening is all about – bringing compassion, kindness, and a lifetime of love to pets and people.

Bid on Face of Puttin’ On The Leash for your pet to be the inspiration for the lifesaving event in 2021!
