Barktoberfest Yappy Hour planned

The Niagara Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is partnering with The Irishman Pub & Eatery for a Barktoberfest Yappy Hour from 5:30 to 8 p.m. Wednesday, Sept. 19, at 5601 Main St. in Williamsville.

The event, to benefit the Niagara No-Kill SPCA, will feature a mini basket raffle and 50/50. Individuals can also purchase raffle tickets for a $650 booze cart raffle. The winning ticket will then be pulled at the Niagara SPCA’s Howl-iday Party on Dec. 1.

Attendees can partake in specialty cocktails created by the Irishman specifically for this event, with the shelter getting a portion of the proceeds. Some of the cocktails include “Puppy Power,” “Fur Real,” “The Hair of the Dog” and “Absolut Salty Dog,” among others. Individuals can also bring their dog. There will be a Barktoberfest and autumn themed doggie costume contest with a prize.

A VIP visit from Phoenix “the Wonder Dog” and his owner, the woman who worked to save him after two Buffalo teens set fire to him in 2012, will make an appearance at the event.
