Dog Lovers Unite at Mutts & Martinis


 

 

Mutts & Martinis has returned! The annual event brings hundreds of dog lovers to the Esplanade on Marco Island for a caninefriendly fundraising party. While the humans drink their martinis, the pups are able to play, socialize, and hang out with other dogs.

Participants are encouraged to dress their pups in their best attire, whatever that may be. Dogs of all shapes, sizes, and breeds strut down the makeshift runway during the “Pooch Parade.” There was also a silent auction and a 50/50 raffle.

And if that weren’t enough, the Humane Society of Naples was onsite with adoptable (and adorable) doggies!

Proceeds from Mutts & Martinis benefit the Greater Marco Family YMCA summer camp programs and YReads, a literacy initiative for elementary school students. Money raised will also go towards migrant children living in southwest Florida and other underserved communities in Collier County.
