Mutts & Mimosas
Dakin Humane Society’s 6th Annual Mutts & Mimosas, will return to Quonquont Farm in Whately, MA on Sunday, September 30th, 2018. Event is Rain or Shine.
This September, event guests and their pups will heighten their senses with a taste-bud-tantalizing brunch buffet among the crisp, fresh, apple scented air of the season. In its 6th year, Mutts & Mimosas has become a “must-do” event for dogs and their two-legged besties. Proceeds from the event directly support Dakin Humane Society's mission to deliver effective, innovative services that improve the lives of animals in need and the people who care about them.
Hosted by the premier Quonquont Farm in its rustic barn and bucolic countryside, this unique occasion will feature a variety of Mimosas from the Mimosa Bar lined with fresh fruits and a specialty apple cider mimosa. Guests’ ears will perk up with live music by Banish Misfortune, a six-member group playing traditional Irish music. Private doggie/human reiki sessions will soothe that behind the ear itch and a photo booth for dogs and their humans will commemorate this delightful, Autumn occasion. Other dog-friendly activities include:
- Nose work: dog treasure hunt in which your pup will sniff out the goods
- Agility training with Caryl-Rose Pofcher
- Canine bobbing for apples
- Dog walking trail around Quonquont Farm
Additional fundraising efforts at the event include a raffle of puptacular items. Winners will be drawn at the event on September 30th. Entrants do not need to be present during the drawing to win.
