July 30 Yappy Hour Celebrates Pets & Their People

URBANA--Nothing says dog days of summer like a Yappy Hour.

Mix and mingle with fellow pet people (and their furry friends) at the University of Illinois College of Veterinary Medicine's first ever Yappy Hour.

All proceeds will benefit the Humane Connection Fund at the University of Illinois Veterinary Teaching Hospital. The Humane Connection Fund supports care at the teaching hospital for animal companions whose owners have limited means. By enabling caregivers to "go the extra mile" in treatment of these patients, the fund helps provide an excellent learning opportunity for our students.

For just $20 a person and $5 per animal companion, guests will enjoy pizza and empanadas from Manolo's, along with two drink tickets. Our furry friends will have full access to our open water bar, plus a variety of gourmet treats.

The generous sponsors that made this event possible include the Canopy Club, Cousins Dog Biscuits, Manolo's, Piccadilly Beverage Shops, Prospect Bank, Sullivan-Parkhill Automotive, Inc., and US Bones. Raise your glass (or water bowl) and celebrate the human-animal bond!
