Our Homes with Woofs event will be held on June 12 at City Hall. We’d like to see some restaurants/bars in town host a Yappy Hour in the days leading up to it, particularly those with outside terraces where owners can have a drink and bring their pets with them. Imagine how much fun that would be after this long, never-ending winter!
We will supply posters two weeks before and paper coasters with our round logo on them. Chris Forrest, who’s handling our communications, will be sending out the message to the media; if we can get enough of you to do it, we should get some pretty good press. You can invent your own “barktail” — maybe a Daschund Daiquiri, or a Maltese Mojito — or we can share the recipe for the two signature drinks we’ll be serving on June 12: the Bow Wow and the Tail Wagger.
Some of the bars we’ve talked to so far will donate proceeds from the Yappy Hour (we’re suggesting a 5-7 PM time slot); others will give us a gift certificate for our silent auction. Either way, all our donors will get a tax receipt from the Ottawa Humane Society.
