Happy Hour: Barks and Beer

Date: 14 September 2019 6:00 PM - 8:00 PM, Venue: Czech Embassy

The Czech Embassy and City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties are partnering to hold a Happy Hour: Barks & Beer with the opportunity to adopt local dogs and cats at the Czech Embassy on September 14, 2019, from 4 pm-6 pm. After the Velvet Revolution, Marta Kubišová focused on her love for animals, hosting an overwhelmingly popular show about abandoned pets called "Do You Want Me?" (Chcete mě?).  In her spirit, the Czech Embassy will host the local non-profit City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties and their canines and felines in need of loving homes. Come enjoy a refreshing Czech beer and get to know cuddly, adoptable furry friends. 

About City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties:
City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties rescues adoptable dogs and cats in overcrowded and high-kill shelters, where resources are severely limited. It offers a lifeline to as many of these wonderful animals before they are euthanized due to lack of space by finding these animals permanent and loving homes in the DC metropolitan area. City Dogs Rescue & City Kitties is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that is a "rescue" not a "shelter." It consists of a network of volunteers who foster cats and dogs in their homes. The organization welcomes help in any capacity, through volunteering, fostering, adopting, sponsoring and/or donating.
