The event invites dogs and their owners to come dressed to the (K) 9’s and sniff around while supporting some of the area’s best pet rescues including: All 4 Paws Rescue and Street Tails. The Yappy Hour is a prelude to National Dog Day, August 26, 2014. The public is invited to post photos of their dog August 1-22 on Instagram at @loewshotels and hashtag #loewslovespets to enter to win an overnight stay at the Loews Philadelphia Hotel with their dog through the Loews Loves Pets program.
Admission to the event is $15 per person, four legged friends are free. Guests can decide which of the two organizations they would like their entrance fee to benefit.
All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. is a foster-based, all-breed, no-kill animal rescue based in Chester Springs, PA that offers rescue, rehabilitation, and sanctuary to animals in need. They do not have a physical shelter - all of their animals are housed in foster homes. All 4 Paws Rescue, Inc. is made up of volunteers and foster homes that care for and socialize the animals. Most of their animals have been rescued from "death row" from high-kill shelters and auctions and given a second chance at life.
Street Tails Animal Rescue (STAR) has been a foster-based rescue for well over a decade, initially operating out of The Chic Petique and run by owner/founder Lindsay Condefer. STAR has been pulling dogs out of the city shelters for a decade, many of whom were/are in need of medical attention that they could not get at the crowded city shelter.
STAR's mission is to help the homeless, and unwanted animals within the local, Philadelphia area by helping them receive proper medical attention, educating the public on the importance of spaying and neutering, and by placing these animals in suitable, compatible, and most of all, loving homes
At the Yappy Hour, two legged guests can sip on an array of cocktails from a cash bar including the Pup-tini and the Cosbow-wow-politan, while enjoying complimentary appetizers. Dogs will have their own yappatizer buffet that includes items from the Loews Loves Pets menu, featuring house made cuisine for dogs using fresh, healthy ingredients. There will also be a contest for the best dressed dog at the event with prizes to make every tail wag!
