Yappy Hour on Saturday July 22 was a great success. We had several people stop by throughout the two hours of the event. 4 dogs stopped by, too!
We were pleased to have Patrick Carrico (like Jericho) perform at Yappy Hour. He’s got a country feel with a unique sound that is his own. He played for two sets with a break in between.
Check out a videos from the event:
Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles attended Yappy Hour, too. They had a table set up outside to give people information about their service. People could also sign up their pets for any medical procedures they were needing (spay/neuter, checkups, etc). They were even taking volunteers to help at their kitten nursery (we saw at least 1 person signed up to help).
We were happy to have Laura’s Goodies attend the event, too. Laura attended our Yappy Hour last year, as well as last year’s pet fair. Her treats are a hit with all the dogs.
We had a photo booth at Yappy Hour, too. It has homemade props on sticks as well as animal ears. Here are three of our planning committee members enjoying the photo booth.
We organized the Yappy Hour for a few reasons. We wanted area dog owners to have a chance to socialize with other dogs owners (and dog lovers) in the area. You do not need to have or bring a dog to attend this event.
Another reason is we wanted to start a monthly meeting where pet owners can learn something about animal care. That is why we invited SNPLA to attend. In the future we plan to have other guests come and share some wisdom about pet care, either from the mic or at a table like SNPLA did at this last event.
The last reason we organized Yappy Hour is to raise funds for the 2017 Montebello Pet Fair. Thanks to the support of our guests, Patrick Carrico, and The Daily Brew, we raised $54. Thank you so much.
We have decided to continue having Yappy Hour. The goal is to have it around once a month. The next Yappy Hour is Saturday August 19 from 6pm to 9pm at The Daily Brew Coffee Bar (137 N Montebello Blvd, Montebello, CA 90640). Our special musical guests are being put together and we will have more details soon.
