Yappy Hour Valentine’s Card Contest in Long Beach
February 8: Long Beach Animal Care Services and Haute Dogs, Justin Rudd will host a handmade Valentine’s card contest for Long Beach-area students (K-12). Create lovable Valentine’s cards for the 120+ dogs and 50+ cats housed at the Long Beach Animal Care Services shelter. Contest is from 11 a.m. to noon.
Send your card to Long Beach Animal Care Services, 7700 E. Spring St., Long Beach. Students should place their name, grade level, teacher’s name and school name on the very back of the card. Cards will not be returned.
The student who creates the winning card will receive a pizza party for their friends, classroom or group (up to 30 people). In addition to the regular shelter hours, the public is invited to come view the cards and their creators, spend time with the animals and “fall in love” during a special Yappy Hour where drinks and cookies will be served to human guests, soft love songs will be playing, the shelter animals will receive special Valentine’s goodies, and awards will be announced for the best Valentine’s cards.
