2024 Yappy Hour Sponsorship

Yappy Hour is the only cocktail party in Metro Detroit where your dog is invited. With a silent auction, cocktails, delicious food, gourmet dog treats, red carpet photos, and so much more, it’s no surprise that Yappy Hour has become the event of the season with over 500 attendees.

Yappy Hour’s popularity makes it an event individuals and companies are eager to associate their names with. It’s a marketing opportunity with a direct impact upon homeless and at-risk animals! Over 80% of our sponsors consistently return year after year in support of MARL and the animals we serve.

Yappy Hour will be held on Thursday, September 12, 2024 in the historic gardens of Meadow Brook Hall.
