The Grand Prairie Animal Shelter is proud to bring back Yappy Hour after last year's success. The Yappy Hour wine tasting and pawsitively awesome silent auction will be 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Aug 29, 2013, at the Ruthe Jackson Center, 3113 S. Carrier Parkway. The howling-good-time event combines an entertaining and delicious wine tasting with a unique silent auction to raise money for the shelter’s Animal Welfare Fund, which helps cover major veterinarian costs for sick and injured shelter animals. Purrrfectly priced tickets are $25 each and available by calling Nadia at 972-237-8576 or at the Animal Shelter, 2222 W. Warrior Trail, Grand Prairie, during operating hours:

Tuesday – Friday 10 a.m.-6 p.m.
Saturday 10 a.m.-5 p.m. (closed noon-1 p.m.)

"The auction had such unique items, I loved it," said pet-lover Lisa Greenwell of the 2012 event. "The wine tasting was so fun. In fact, my friends and I liked it so much we bid on and bought a wine tasting for our book club."

Last year's event raised more than $7,000. These funds helped save countless lives by covering the cost of major medical expenses for the shelter's less healthy guests.
