On June 6th, humans and their dogs will gather for the 10th annual Yappy Hour to benefit the Michigan Animal Rescue League. Yappy Hour is the only cocktail party in Metro Detroit where dogs are welcome! The grounds of Meadow Brook Hall will be buzzing with music, a strolling dinner & cocktails, silent auction and much more. The dogs will even be treated to their very own gourmet hors d’oeuvres!

This year will be a blast from the past as we go back to the 1950’s – the decade that MARL opened its doors!

Purr-usual our feline friends will be keeping it cool at home. But that doesn’t mean they don’t want to help raise funds for the homeless cats (and dogs) of southeast Michigan! TEAM CAT is ready to blast past the K-9’s this year.

Each person who contributes to TEAM CAT by May 31, 2019 will have their name added to the TEAM CAT roster proudly displayed at Yappy Hour. 

To join TEAM CAT, just fill out the form below to make an online donation in any amount! If you prefer to make a donation by mail, just download the 2019 Team Cat Reply Form and return it to MARL.

We look forward to another successful event and seeing TEAM CAT represented!

Pawsitively Yours,

The Cats and Kittens of the Michigan Animal Rescue League.
