Last evening supporters of Love Dog Adventures gathered for an evening of friendship and fun in Las Vegas to celebrate National Therapy Animal Day. The day started with tremendous rains but the sun came out just in time for guests to arrive at Mingo Kitchen & Lounge.

Friends we knew and those new to Love Dogs all mingled in a beautiful garden setting, enjoyed fabulous Alien Tequila Love Dog Magaritas and amazing food. The Love Dogs on hand were having such a good time and were thrilled to meet so many of our therapy dogs on hand!

Guests had the chance to win raffle items totaling $7,000 and they were able to view a slide show reflecting the community work the Love Dogs do day in and day out.

Mayor Carolyn Goodman bestowed a Proclamation that May 18 be Love Dog Adventures Day and magician and Las Vegas celebrity Murray SawChuck presented the order to Petey!

We all agreed this was the perfect way to introduce our new status as an IRS approved 501c3 charity and encourage community support. Donations will enable us to do even more in the coming years.
