UPDATE Furry Faces Foundation postpones their first ever Mutts 'n Martinis... a yappy hour

UPDATE Oct. 13

The event scheduled by Furry Faces Foundation, "Mutts n' Martinis" set for Oct. 15 has been postponed. Here's the notice:

We have made the difficult decision to postpone our ‘Mutts ‘n ‘Martinis…a yappy hour’ event, which was scheduled for this Saturday, October 15th from 4 pm – 7pm. We are very sorry for any inconvenience or disappointment this decision may cause.


Q: Why did Furry Faces decide to postpone Mutts ‘n’ Martinis?

Safety first. There is enough evidence to suggest our area is likely to experience very high winds and buckets full of rain which could create hazardous driving and walking conditions; scared dogs that could bolt; power outages during the event; and other safety concerns.
Dogs will not enjoy themselves. Happy dogs = happy people and vice a versa. High winds and rain will not be fun to play in, plus would blow through Stay! Doggie Daycare’s interior, creating miserable conditions. We want our canine and human guests to enjoy themselves during this cocktail event.

Q: We purchased our tickets via Paypal. What do we do?

Answer: Furry Faces Foundation will be emailing you to see if you want us to refund you or if you would like to ‘hold onto’ your ticket(s) as this event will be rescheduled. It’s too fun to not reschedule!

Q: We purchased our tickets at one of your four tickets outlets? What do we do?ac

Answer: Furry Faces Foundation will refund the price of your tickets or if you would like to ‘hold onto’ your ticket(s) as this event will be rescheduled. If you would like a refund, please visit our ticket outlet from where you purchased the tickets.

Q: Do you have a new date for Mutts ‘n Martinis? If not, how do I hear about it once the new date has been determined?

Answer: Not at this time. We need to coordinate with all of our business partners and the Washington State Liquor Board, WSLB, who has a 45 day permit process. We are not sure if the WSLB is able to authorize a date change or if we will have to start the application process over.

Thank you for your understanding and for supporting Furry Faces Foundation and this event. Be safe this weekend and we will see you soon!
