"Dog Prom" helps raise funds for dogs with cancer

CHICAGO (WLS) -- People who love dogs and love getting dressed up, put on their dancing shoes on Saturday night and hoofed it over to a prom for dogs.

"Dancing with the Dogs-Dog Prom" was held at Row 24, 2411 S. Michigan Ave, in Chicago's South Loop.

The fundraiser was hosted by the Live Like Roo Foundation.

The non-profit provides support and financial assistance to families whose pet faces a cancer diagnosis.

The foundation pays bills for biopsies, amputations, medications and more.

It's named after Roosevelt, a rescue, who died in 2015.
