Yappy Hour 2023

YH Overview

The 14th Annual Yappy Hour to benefit the Michigan Animal Rescue League
was our most successful fundraising event to date!

We welcomed over 500 guests and their four-legged friends to the stunning Rock Garden at Meadow Brook Hall to celebrate MARL and the life-saving work that we do. Proceeds raised from Yappy Hour directly benefit the animals in our care now, and those who will depend on our care in the future. THANK YOU to all involved for making this wonderful event possible!
