The 8th Annual Pints for Pets is here. Last year’s online activities were well-received, so this year DBCHS is taking a hybrid approach.
“We could not be more excited that Pints for Pets this year has both in-person and virtual components,” said Laura Coleman Pritchard, DBCHS Board of Directors President.
“Our animals have gone to great permanent homes, often without setting one paw in our shelter. Volunteers and our network of experts in animal welfare have partnered with us on cases of animal neglect and cruelty,” Pritchard continued. “Now it’s time to celebrate this community with a fun event.”
The fun kicked off Monday night with virtual happy hour: “Cocktails with Alex & AY” at Harvey’s. If you missed it, don’t worry — there are plenty of activities the rest of the week, too.
Tuesday night is Live Team Trivia hosted by Mike Archer at Big City Pizza Danville from 7:30-9 p.m. with prizes for first, second and third-place finishers. Then join us virtually for Cat-Dog Bingo on Thursday at 7 p.m. — you know you want to find out what that’s all about!
On Friday, we’ve got Yappy Hour at Gypsy Run from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Humans can enjoy drink specials, and their dog-friendly dogs can get all the pets they want. The week of festivities culminates Saturday, October 23, in an outdoor gathering at Weisiger Park from 12:30 p.m. to 7 p.m. Pick up a bite to go from your favorite downtown establishment and hang out with us in the park. There will be family-friendly fun, games, and drinks with the backdrop of live music from area artists Elias Delbridge, Be Square and Port & Starboard. Well-mannered pups are welcome — there will be treats for them, too!
