Park Hyatt Washington, the city’s most sophisticated, pet-friendly hotel, will host its annual series of Paws at the Park after-work happy hours, benefiting the Washington Animal Rescue League. Area residents and hotel guests are invited to bring their dogs to meet and mingle on the hotel’s outdoor grounds. Adoptable animals from the League’s shelter will be present for attendees to interact with, and to perhaps find a new home.
WHEN: Wednesday, May 15, 2013 from 6:00 pm – 8:00 pm. Additional Paws at the Park events are scheduled for September 18, and a Halloween-themed costume contest on October 23, 2013.
HOW: Tickets are priced at $14, which includes two drink vouchers for beer and wine, plus complimentary dog treats. Events are open to the public and all are welcome to attend. A portion of the evening’s proceeds will be donated to the League.
WHY: The Washington Animal Rescue League is the oldest animal shelter in the District of Columbia and has a mission to rescue, rehabilitate, and re-home animals who have nowhere else to go. Its facility is painstakingly designed from the animals’ point of view to make it one of the most humane animal shelters in the world. The full-service Medical Center serves the companion animals of low-income area residents, as well as shelter animals. The League is located at 71 Oglethorpe Street, NW, Washington, DC.
