Yappy Hour

In response to the evolving COVID-19 situation, the Michigan Animal Rescue League has made the very difficult decision to cancel our 2020 Yappy Hour, scheduled for June 4th.

While we must cancel this year’s event, the needs of the animals continue. The demand for MARL’s services historically increases exponentially during economic downturns, and these are circumstances unlike any other in our 67-year history.

The theme for Yappy Hour 2020 was very fittingly SUPER HEROES. And the animals need you to be their super hero now more than ever. The funds we raise from Yappy Hour – our  most important annual fundraising event – are critical for the life-saving work that we do.

Event cancellation does not cancel the needs of our animals and our community. That’s why, this year, we invite you to participate virtually in MARL’s first-ever….

Yappy Week!

June 1st through June 7th, 2020
www.marleague.org

Grab your cape and join us (from your couch) for this one-of-a-kind pet party! MARL is kicking off its first-ever virtual “Yappy Week” by celebrating the shelter super heroes that make MARL a different breed of shelter. Heroes and sidekicks alike will enjoy behind-the-scenes photos and videos from life at MARL, tales and transformation stories from our most memorable adoptions, and a chance to have YOUR pet featured supporting their furry friends in the shelter.

Be part of the action by visiting MARL’s website right here at www.marleague.org anytime between June 1st and June 7th of this year.
