Yappy Hour August 19, 2017

Our second Yappy Hour of the year is shaping up to be a really great time. We ask that everyone who attends bring a monetary donation to give during your time at Yappy Hour. You choose the amount but we recommend between $5 and $20. If you would like to give $50 or more we will speak with you about sponsoring the fair. All proceeds are going to pay for the 2017 Montebello Pet Fair.


Yappy Hour
Saturday August 19, 2017
6pm to 9pm
The Daily Brew Coffee Bar
137 N Montebello Blvd,
Montebello, CA 90640

Our entertainment for the evening is Patrick Carrico and Kassidy Heal. Patrick was our musical guest in July and we are grateful he is back again this month. He and Kassidy have performed together before. On August 19 they will do their own sets and probably do some music together, too. Can’t wait to hear what they have for us.



Keeping The Culture Alive (KTCA) artists will be attending Yappy Hour. Ariel Torres will be taking commissions for watercolor paintings of your pet. Randy from Clasek Art will have his cat artwork for sale as well (Yes, cat people are welcome at this event.). KTCA’s 4th Annual Artfest will be happening Saturday September 16 from 12pm to 6pm at Montebello City Park. We are glad to have them participating in Yappy Hour. If you are a local artist and would like to participate in the Artfest be sure to contact KTCA or come to Yappy Hour on the 19th to sign up.


We are glad to have Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles (SNPLA) attending Yappy Hour again. SNPLA has been a part of the Montebello Pet Fair since our first year. We are grateful for their participation in the fair and Yappy Hour, but we are most grateful for what they do for the animals in Los Angeles County. Thousands of animals are vaccinated, given health checkups, or spayed/neutered by this organization. Thank you SNPLA for all you do.

Laura’s Goodies is back again this month giving out samples of her dog treats and also selling them. Be sure to stop by her table. You can also order a cake for your dog’s birthday or gotcha day. She also makes human treats.

Montebello Youth Leadership Club will be collecting school supplies at Yappy Hour. Bring things like backpack, notebooks, pencils, pens, glue sticks, folders, paper, or anything else that students might need. All supplies will be given to Montebello schools and students.

See you Saturday August 19 at The Daily Brew Coffee Bar. It is going to be a great night.

First Yappy Hour of the year

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.

Yappy Hour – July 22, 2017

Last year we had a lot of fun at our Yappy Hour fundraiser so we decided to do another one this year. The date is Saturday July 22, 2017 from 3pm to 5pm at The Daily Brew Coffee Bar (137 N Montebello Blvd, Montebello, CA 90640).

We are excited to have Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles attending to share information about the services they offer and also general information for pet owners. They will also be scheduling appointments for any cat or dog owner whose pet needs vaccines or spay/neuter surgery (they will not be providing services at the event, only scheduling).

We are happy to announce our musical entertainment for the evening. Patrick Carrico is our musician for the evening. “His music has been called everything from “California country” to rockabilly to blues but with his down-home, genuine lyrics, heartfelt melodies and golden tones, his songs have the power to just make you feel damn good and bring you back to a time when things were wonderful. He seems to fit no particular genre, but rest assured, Patrick Carrico’s brand of noise-making is for anyone who can appreciate a catchy tune with a heart of gold.” We look forward to having him perform at the Yappy Hour. Check him out at his website: http://www.patrickcarrico.com/

Come enjoy the photo booth. Listen to music. Talk to other pet owners. See what SNPLA has to offer. Drink an iced coffee and have some pastries.

For dog owners who are bringing their dog(s).

  1. All dogs must be up to date on their vaccinations to attend.
  2. No female dogs in heat are allowed to attend.
  3. Please do not bring a dog that is known to not get along well with other dogs or people they do not know. If the dog could, they would thank you for not bringing them.
  4. Dogs must remain on leash the whole time. There is no enclosed place for the dogs to wander around. (One day we’ll figure out a place where we can do that, but until then leashes required.)
  5. The organizers of the Yappy Hour and the staff and owners of The Daily Brew reserve the right to send a dog home if it is not being safe around other dogs. This is for the safety of your dog and other people.
  6. Everyone with a dog will sign a hold harmless agreement.
  7. You can bring your dog inside while you order your drink/food so don’t worry if you’re nervous about leaving your dog outside alone.
