Walking into a Dylan’s Candy Bar store, it’s almost impossible not to smile.  Shelves lined with vibrant collections of temptations and treats for both children and adults, in Dylan’s signature colors, welcome patrons into the ultimate candy lovers’ paradise.

Gumdrops and lollipops aside, what we love most about Dylan, (besides her amazing fashion sense, in part passed down from her famous father, Ralph Lauren) is her passion for helping our furry friends.

A lifelong animal lover, Dylan founded Dylan’s Candy BarN, a fun play on the name of her candy brand, but with a serious mission. The foundation’s aim is to help promote adoption, assist in rescue efforts, and raise funds for animal welfare organizations. Proceeds from specially marked Dylan’s Candy BarN products (like the bright and fun items featured below) go toward supporting organizations like the ASPCA, Best Friends Animal Project, Frankie’s Friends, and the Humane Society of the United States, to name but a few.

In New York? Looking for unconditional love??? Put this Saturday, May 14th on your calendar and visit the Dylan’s Candy BarN Dog Adoption Event in Union Square. Come out to meet the exceptional group of canine companions looking for their human counterparts. Or simply join us to show your support for the dedicated animal rescue organizations doing their part to make the world a better place for pups and people alike.

Dylan herself, as well as famous friend, Hailey Clauson (2016 Sports Illustrated cover model) and insta-famous pup, Toast Meets World, will be on site to partake in the festivities.

If you’re not in the New York area but have a sweet tooth and a soft spot for pets (who doesn’t, right?!), take a look at these awesome Dylan’s Candy BarN products. With just one click, a portion of your online purchase will go toward supporting incredible, pro-animal initiatives across America.

Stay up to date with news from the foundation on Twitter @dylanscandybarn, and if you make a purchase or an adoption, be sure to tag us @getleashed to share your story.

Thank you to the ever fabulous Dylan Lauren for adding a touch of sweetness to the lives of pets in need.
