As a connoisseur of all things pets, it didn’t take long for Animal Fair’s fabulous founder Wendy Diamond to realize that there aren’t enough opportunities to party with our pets. That’s why Wendy created Yappy Hour®, the first-ever benefit where people and pets can celebrate and raise money for homeless animals while seeking puppy love.
Yappy Hour® is many things: a benefit, a mixer, and an adoption drive. At this must-attend benefit doggies and their guardians have the opportunity to mingle (and sniff) with other animal enthusiasts while enjoying puptails and hound-d’oeuvres. And forget awkward introductions, your dogs will make them for you! But don’t fear if you have no four-legged friend! The beauty of Yappy Hour® is that if you have no dog in tow, the PennsylvaniaSPCA has local adoptable dogs on-site that party participants can rent during the evening for a small donation. Who knows, you might even fall in puppy love with your rented companion and take him or her home with both your tails wagging. After a few puptails, you’ll have a new addition to the family, and at Yappy Hour, everyone goes home happy.
This year Wendy and Lucky are launching a multiple city Yappy Hour® tour promoting their new book It’s a Dog’s World, a culmination of a decade of their experience in the pet business, and of course, to promote what can come from true, unbridled puppy love!
And if you can’t make it to the Philadelphia Yappy Hour®, Wendy and Lucky will be spreading the love this year in Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco, Salt Lake City, Chicago, Miami, Washington DC, Aspen, Denver, Seattle, Portland, Dallas and Seattle. Sin up to the Wendy and Lucky Diamond Facebook fan page, and the Animal Fair website for more information and dates on the Yappy Hour coming to a city near you!
