Mile High Mutts, a Denver doggie daycare, presents an afternoon of food, drink, fun and some doggie playtime on Saturday March 8 from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event is open to the public. Attendees do not need to be current customers to attend and support this cause. The Unleashed Yappy Hour will be held at Mile High Mutts’ facility, 3500 Chestnut Place, Denver, CO 80216, two blocks west of Brighton Blvd. on 35th Street.

Organized by Unleashed, a local Denver organization established in 2012, the event will “help tails by drinking ales,” according to Marcus Newell, owner of Mile High Mutts. Eighty cents out of every dollar donated will go to support the Denver Animal Shelter.

Tickets are $25 and include 2 drink coupons (adult or non-alcoholic) as well as buffet appetizers. Additional drinks are available with a donation. Tickets can be purchased at the event website. Dogs are encouraged to attend with their owner. Guest dogs will experience Mile High Mutts’ large indoor/outdoor daycare space with room to romp with other new four-legged friends.

“We are thrilled to host Unleashed’s first ever Yappy Hour supporting the Denver Animal Shelter, an organization that needs our attention and donations,” said Newell.

While the pups play in the daycare indoor/outdoor yard, their owners will enjoy drawings, a silent auction and raffle prizes all to benefit the animal shelter. The Colorado Pet Pantry will be in attendance too accepting cat and dog food donations to aid local pet owners who are financially strapped.
