Animal Fair Magazine Presents the Jeep® Yappy Hour Event NYC to Benefit the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals

New York, NY – Tuesday, November 22, 2005 – Dolled-up dames, dons, and the dogs who love them will be turning out in force for one of the season's hottest tickets — the Jeep® Yappy Hour Event on Wednesday, November 30, at the Mark Garrison Salon, 108 East 60th Street, in Manhattan.

Pampered pooches and their guardians will mix and mingle with other dog-lovers at this not-to-be missed affair, kicking off the 2005 Holiday Season with cocktails, hors d'oeuvres, gourmet food for dogs, and take-home doggie bags that will delight canines and their companions alike.

For those event-goers who don't have a canine companion, a selection of adoptable dogs from area shelters and rescue groups — members of the Mayor's Alliance — will be on hand to tempt and tantalize, and hopefully find their perfect match at the event. These adorable dogs also will be available as "escorts" by the half hour, with a $30 donation to the Mayor's Alliance. This is a great way to meet people, donate to a great cause, and see if the dog is right for you!

The Jeep® Yappy Hour Event, staged in cities across America by Animal Fair's Wendy Diamond and her pup-companion Lucky, is a fun-for-Fido fundraising event that raises money and public awareness for worthwhile animal causes. This year's event in New York City is a fundraiser for the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals — a coalition of 85-plus animal shelters and rescue groups working with the City of New York to transform NYC into a no-kill community.

Tickets to the event are $75, and may be purchased online or by mail. For convenient online purchase with a credit card, go to Or, to purchase tickets by mail, send a check (made payable to the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals) to the Mayor's Alliance for NYC's Animals, 440 Ninth Avenue, 8th floor, Suite 9, New York, NY 10001.
