Senior Dog Birthday Pawty

Join in for a party celebrating the senior dogs of Hope Animal Rescue! Since we don’t know the birthdays of our senior rescue dogs, we decided just throw a big party for ALL of them as part of our Summer of Seniors campaign/celebration! Pet an adoptable dog, sip on a beer, and sign our senior dog birthday card. Trophy Brewery + Taproom will be donating 15% of sales during the event, so it’s the perfect time to get your Sunday Funday on! Plus, for any person that stops by our table to make a donation and sign the dogs’ birthday card, one of our supporters will donate $25 (so even a small donation will go a long way). Dogs and humans of all ages are welcome! Festivities will include: Adoptable dogs, party hats, cupcakes, Mr. Puebla food truck, homemade doggy ice cream made by our volunteers, summer of Seniors / Hope Animal Rescue swag (available for a donation), and, of course, beer. Saturday, 1 – 4 pm; 656 Maywood Ave, Raleigh, NC 27603
