Yappy Hour Series

2018 Series – Starting June 3

Leash up your pooch and grab some friends for this summer’s hottest doggie date nights! Valley Humane Society’s 2018 Yappy Hour series promises fun and friendly rivalry as four local venues compete to see who can raise the most money to help homeless dogs and cats.

Activities will vary at each location, but VHS swag and a great raffle prize will be available at each location. Dogs are welcome at each location.

Activities for each location are still being planned. Save the dates and check back regularly for more details!
