Yappy Hour: Howl-o-ween Edition with Dog Costume Contest

October 15, 2021 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Join Franconia Sculpture Park and Ruff Start Rescue for a Howl-o-ween style Yappy Hour!

Franconia’s “Yappy Hours” are a great way for the many dogs that love Franconia to experience the park after hours, along with their animal and art-loving parents! Each event will feature dog-tinis, cocktails, art-making activities for pups and people, contests, and other surprises. Franconia partners with Ruff Start Rescue who will be on site at each event with pooches looking for their fur-ever home. Come with your pup, or leave with a new best friend! A portion of sales from each event will benefit Ruff Start Rescue. All events take place Fridays from 5pm-7pm.

About Ruff Start Rescue:

Ruff Start Rescue is a 501c3 nonprofit foster-based animal rescue based in central Minnesota. Since 2010 we have rescued more than 13,000 animals. A majority of them had a truly rough start, coming from situations of neglect or abandonment. We also help animals that are strays or owner surrenders. All receive proper veterinary care and are housed in foster homes throughout the state of Minnesota as they wait for their forever home.

In addition to the dogs on-site available for adoption, Ruff Start has a number of pups that aren’t able to attend events due to health or behavioral issues but are still equally as lovable! Check out their website to see some of these very special dogs!
