Viva Paws Vegas Fundraiser for Winnipeg Humane Society

It’s the one day a year you can take your animal with you for a night out on the town. “Viva Paws Vegas” is a fundraiser in support of the Winnipeg Humane Society on Thursday, April 8 at the Fairmont Winnipeg.

Dubbed “Yappy Hour,” pet owners are encouraged to come with or without their furry friend for an evening of cocktails and dancing. Prizes will be awarded for best costume, and a trip for two to Las Vegas will be given away to one lucky attendee.

If you want to set your pooch up with a companion, there will even be a muttrimony wedding chapel. Yep, you read that correctly.

Beau, Tom and Frazier from 99.9 BOB FM will host the evening, which runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Tickets are $50 through the WHS. Call 982-2041 or visit Dogs are free.
