DETROIT – Valentine’s Day is for pets, too. That’s why PetCalls is hosting a fun Valentine’s Day mixer for friends and pets on Feb. 14 at the Museum for Contemporary Art Detroit on 4454 Woodward Ave. The event will feature specialty cocktails and treats for humans and their dogs. From 6-9 p.m., guests can stroll the museum and enjoy music and other entertainment, including a pet psychic.
“We go into homes everyday with our veterinarians and we know people like to take their pets to fun places,” said Kimberly Jackson, CEO of PetCalls. “We are big fans of saving homeless animals so we decided to show our love for Detroit Dog Rescue with an event on the most romantic night of the year.”
PetCalls is a Detroit-based mobile veterinarian service for dogs, cats, and other animals. Services that can be done at home include digital X-ray, ultrasound, K-laser, lab tests, vaccinations and other treatments.
Guests and their pets will be treated to pet psychic readings from the readers of the Boston Tea Room. These readers will help human guests understand their dogs’ individual quirks and moods and, although they can’t claim to work any training miracles, the psychics have dozens of years of experience.
A photographer will also be on hand at the dinner to snap pictures of dogs and their humans and a silent auction with unique gifts catered to canine and human guests will collect additional funds to benefit Detroit Dog Rescue.
Detroit Dog Rescue is the first and only no-kill dog shelter in Detroit. Since opening in 2014, DDR has rescued thousands of dogs and advocated for alternatives to euthanasia, proper pet care education, and low cost spay and neuter options.
The cost for the event is $35 for each human and four-legged companion. A special VIP ticket is available for $50 that includes a VIP reception from 6-6:30 p.m.
