Yappy Hour

YH22 Join Us Web Banner 1024x256 1

The 13th Annual Yappy Hour to benefit the Michigan Animal Rescue League was bigger and better than ever! 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 will directly benefit the animals in our care, and those who will depend on our care in the future. THANK YOU to all involved for making this wonderful event possible!
