Featured Stories

The Hop House bar in Bangor hosted their very first “doggy day” event.

The popular bar partnered up with animal charity Assisi and Glenn’s Veterinary Clinic to provide a venue for dog owners so they would have a space to bond with their loyal canine friends.

Guests were welcomed with food, competitions, activities and had the chance to purchase doggy goodies from stalls operated by local market vendors. Hop House even had a small BBQ for the dogs and provided some dog friendly beer.

The event was created so that friends and families could spend time with their dogs, while also raising awareness for local charities, in their effort to find new and loving homes for some of the animals at Assisi.

Alison Camberley, the operations manager for Assisi shares more information about the event below.
