Dine Out, Help Homeless Pets And Horses!

Do you have lunch or dinner plans on Thursday, October 17? Well you do now! Enjoy a delicious meal and help homeless animals in need at the Dumb Friends League’s first restaurant and brewery give-back day, Bone Appétit.

When you dine out at participating restaurants and breweries on Thursday, October 17, a portion of your meal will be donated to the League. Money received from this fundraiser will help care for the more than 21,000 homeless pets and horses the organization receives each year. This includes vital services such as veterinary care, behavior training, foster care and other programs that help get pets ready for new homes.

“We’re excited to be partnering with these generous restaurants and breweries,” said Laurie Peterson, Vice President of Development for the Dumb Friends League. “Dining out for Bone Appétit is an easy way for people to make a difference in the lives of homeless animals while enjoying food and drinks from charitable establishments in our community.”
