Port Washington, NY, June 23, 2011 – Barks will be joining the blazers and the button-downs, and passersby might also hear meows not far from the menswear at John Bartlett’s New York City store on Saturday, June 25 when it hosts a North Shore Animal League America (NSALA) pet adoption event.
The Animal League will have a 36-foot mobile adoption unit, filled with beautiful and loving dogs, puppies, cats and kittens, parked outside the shop at 143 Seventh Avenue South at Charles Street in New York City from 12:00 Noon to 5:00 PM. Bartlett adopted Tiny Tim, a handsome, three-legged German Shepherd-Rottweiler mix, from the Animal League and Tiny Tim is represented in the shadowed icon that appears as Bartlett’s logo on
shirts, scarves, accessories and shopping bags
in the Greenwich Village store.
Menswear designer John Bartlett is all smiles with his rescue dog, Millie, at a North Shore Animal League America fundraising event.
Tiny Tim passed away from lymphoma in October 2010 but his legend lives on at the John Bartlett store. Tiny Tim, the store mascot, was an Animal League rescue, delivered to the Port Washington shelter in December, 2002, after being hit by a car. Veterinarians were forced to amputate a severely injured leg and, after his recovery, the dog was put up for adoption. Four months later, when Bartlett decided to celebrate his 40th birthday by adopting a shelter animal, he was looking for a small animal that could travel easily with him. But one look at Tim changed his plans and, as Bartlett says, “It was a wonderful life for a wonderful dog.” Two and a half years ago, Bartlett brought another rescue dog into his life when he adopted Millie from the Animal League, a Chihuahua-Jack Russell terrier mix who was rescued from a Georgia shelter.
