Smoochy Poochy Yappy Hour

Smoochy Poochy Yappy Hour

Whether you’re happily coupled or a member of the lonely-hearts club, you can always use a little animal affection. Join the Humane Society of Sarasota County (HSSC) for a pre-Valentine’s celebration. The third annual Smoochy Poochy Yappy Hour will take place on Tuesday, February 12, 2019, from 5-7pm in the courtyard of The Overton. Admission includes yappetizers and two drink tickets. You’ll feel very cool sipping your event-exclusive cocktail in this modern venue, only to lose your cool completely and melt into a puddle of goo at the sight of the adorable pets. Squeals are acceptable and encouraged. HSSC will have adoptable animals and pet therapy animals on site. And it wouldn’t be Smoochy Poochy without doggie kissing booths, so bring a few extra bucks and prepare to pucker up for a good cause. There will even be some kittens to cuddle. Tickets are $40 per person in advance and $45 at the door.  The Overton is located at 1420 Boulevard of the Arts, Sarasota, in the Rosemary District. There are parking lots behind the building, and there is ample street parking throughout the district. Personal pets are permitted, but they must be on a leash and should be well behaved and good around other animals. All proceeds benefit the lifesaving work of the Humane Society of Sarasota County.

Note: In the event of inclement weather, the event will be cancelled and all registration fees will be considered a donation to the Humane Society of Sarasota County.
