Yappy Hour coming to New Haven!

NEW HAVEN — Claire’s Corner Copia and Basta Trattoria will host a fundraiser, to benefit adoptable animals at The Robin I. Kroogman New Haven Animal Shelter, from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Aug. 19.

Yappy Hour is a chance for dogs and their owners to mingle at Claire’s outdoor patio area at 1000 Chapel St., organizers said. “All dogs must be leashed, licensed, vaccinated and ready for tail-wagging,” organizers said in a statement.

Tickets are $25 per person/dog, which includes one martini (or smoothie), a plateful of Claire’s tasty appetizers, and a slice of bone-shaped cake, the statement said.

Canine participants will receive a water bowl, a bag of organic doggie treats, and a bandanna, courtesy of TD Bank. Several raffle items—for dogs and humans —will be available. Tickets can be purchased at the event or online via Pay Pal at

The event’s co-sponsor is The Friends of The New Haven Animal Shelter, Inc., a 20-year-old non-profit volunteer organization that works directly with The Robin I. Kroogman New Haven Animal Shelter, the statement said.

The Friends provide adoption services, socialization for dogs and cats at the shelter, medical support, and foster care, among other services, the statement said.

Yappy Hour is sponsored by Claire’s Corner Copia, Basta Trattoria, TD Bank, and The Friends of the New Haven Animal Shelter, Inc. Live music will be provided by Wry Bred. Call volunteer Elaine Spinato at (203) 287-0055 for more information.
