Yappy Hour

YH21 Web Banner

Yappy Hour is the only cocktail party in Metro Detroit where your dog is invited!

Yappy Hour 2021 was an incredible celebration of the work that we do, the animals that we care for and the many, many people who make it all possible. Over 500 guests attended this year’s fall event and we are on track to raise more than ever before, making this the most successful Yappy Hour yet.

Thank you to our sponsors, board of directors, staff, volunteers, co-chairs, host committee, guests and community members for making this event spectacular – we couldn’t do it without YOU!

MARL’s 13th Annual Yappy Hour is scheduled for September 29th, 2022 at Meadow Brook Hall.  We hope to see you there!
