Miami Beach Pups Invited to ‘Yappy Hour’

(Miami Beach, FL) Sep 16, 2022 -

Miami Beach is calling all dogs on Tuesday, Sept. 20 for a city-sponsored ‘Yappy Hour’ to bring attention to the need to keep Biscayne Bay free from pet waste.


“We’ll be asking pet owners at the event to take a pledge to clean up after their furry friends and properly dispose of the waste,” Miami Beach City Manager Alina T. Hudak said. “Pet waste is one of the top polluters of our waterways, especially for fecal coliform bacteria.”


Pet owners who pledge to pick up after their dogs will receive a complimentary cocktail and be a part of the city’s We Love Biscayne Bay initiative.


The event will feature live music, a dog adoption station, a dog bakery, pet clothing swap, pet shop vendors and an upcycling workshop. Participating organizations include Animal Lovers Rescue, Community Spirits Vodka, Debris Free Oceans, Doggie Bakery Miami, Florida Sea Grant, The Full Edit, Pangea Kali Virga, ReCreate, The Rounds and Stillblue.
