Events June 13-19: Yappy hour benefits, music jam and dog park cleanup

Monday, June 13: Lucky Dog Yappy Hour at Cantina Marina

The past week’s beastly temperatures have broken, with the high expected to be only around 80 degrees on Monday. That makes it a perfect night to head to Cantina Marina on the D.C. waterfront for a Lucky Dog Animal Rescue yappy hour!

From 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. there will be drink specials for the humans, treats for the canines, and Lucky Dog will be showing off some of the adorable  dogs in their care that are waiting to be adopted. See all their adoptable dogs here.

Cantina Marina is at 600 Water Street SW, Washington, D.C.

Friday, June 17: Yappy Hour hosted by The Dog Stay

The Washington Humane Society Dog Tags Program is the beneficiary of this event at The Dog Stay in Silver Spring from 5:00 to 7:00 p.m.  There will be appetizers, a cash bar, and fun events that you can do with your dog like paw painting, bobbing for hot dogs and musical chairs.

WHS behavior and training counselors will be on hand to answer your questions, and they will also have adoptable dogs there.

Suggested donation is $10.
