Beloved local brewery Dewey Beer Co. partners with HAP in an effort to help homeless pets find their forever families and kick off the spring season
Local Sussex County brewery Dewey Beer Co., in partnership with Humane Animal Partners, is hosting “Dewey Gives 20”, an all-day pet adoption event on Monday, March 20. This community event will help homeless pets find their forever families by uniting beer lovers with adoptable dogs, as well as raising funds for HAP’s shelter operations. The event will take place on Monday, March 20 from 12 – 9 PM at Dewey Beer Co.’s Dewey Beach location (2100 Coastal Hwy. Dewey Beach, DE 19971).
The all day event will be a family-friendly atmosphere for beer and animal lovers alike to mingle, meet adoptable dogs, enjoy great drinks and food, win special raffle baskets and giveaways, with 20% of taproom sales coming back to support HAP animals in need.
Dewey Beer Co., a first state favorite brewery with two locations in Dewey Beach and Harbeson, began partnering last summer with Humane Animal Partners for an adoption event series at the Harbeston location. Members of the public had the chance to meet and fall in love with adoptable dogs and support HAP’s services including vaccination clinics and free pet food pantries. Dewey Beer Co. also raised an additional $8,908 for HAP in a dedicated effort in early 2022.
Humane Animal Partners’ Rehoboth Beach adoption center, located in the Midway Plaza at 18675 Coastal Highway, allows individuals and families to adopt cats and dogs in need of loving homes. HAP prepares animals for adoption at their Wilmington and Stanton/Christiana animal care centers (providing veterinary exams, age-appropriate vaccinations, and spay/neuter services) and then transports them to Rehoboth on their recurring “Tailroad Express.” Additional programs and services are also available including low-cost vaccination clinics, dog license sales, training resources, and more.
Dewey Beer Co. and Humane Animal Partners plan to host more dog-friendly events throughout the upcoming summer months at their Harbeson and Dewey Beach locations. To learn more about these event series please visit humaneanimalpartners.org.
