Yappy Hour is free and open to all LHU students, faculty and staff, as well as local residents. Dog owners and dog lovers alike all are invited to join the walk. The June event will be sponsored by Pine Creek Veterinary Associates in Lock Haven.

“Last semester’s Yappy Hours proved to be very popular events, bringing the LHU and local communities together for fun and socializing. Amy, Ralphie and I hope to see many more familiar and new faces — human and canine — at this year’s events,” said Dr. Robert Pignatello, LHU president.

Owners will be treated to cookies and punch on the patio and canine guests will receive a special LHU dog treat and fresh water.

Future Yappy Hour events scheduled for the fall will be held Tuesdays, September 10 and October 8.
