Yappy Hour

Join us for MARL’s 13th Annual Yappy Hour!

Thursday, September 29, 2022 | 6 – 9 PM
The Rock Garden at Meadow Brook Hall

Yappy Hour is the only cocktail party in Metro Detroit where your dog is invited!  Grab your pup and come enjoy a spectacular evening to benefit the dogs and cats of the Michigan Animal Rescue League.  Guests will enjoy delicious cocktails, gourmet treats, red carpet photography, a silent auction, and so much more – there’s something for everyone and their four-legged friends at Yappy Hour!

Last year’s event was our best yet, raising $215,000 for the animals at MARL! Be a part of this one-of-a-kind evening that helps provide life-saving care to countless animals in need.
