MINNEAPOLIS - Aug. 6, 2014 - PRLog -- Having a brew or two in a dog-friendly atmosphere to benefit an amazing animal nonprofit seems just to good to be true—but it’s not. That dream becomes your reality Tuesday, August 12 from 4:00 to 8:00 p.m. at The Freehouse in Minneapolis for a special event called “Pints for Paws.”

The Freehouse is the perfect location to host a no-holds-barred, pup-friendly happy hour to benefit Top Dog Foundation, whose mission is to provide loving and permanent homes for dogs that are deemed “un-adoptable” because of age and health—dogs that would otherwise be unnecessarily euthanized. “They are all heart at Top Dog which is why we love them so much. Join us to support them Tuesday night at The Freehouse,” said Ali Jarvis of SidewalkDog.com, your co-hosts of “Pints for Paws.”

“We’ll be handing out Raw Bistro dog treats and selling our signature ‘If I Pee On It, It’s Mine’ t-shirts to benefit Top Dog,” Jarvis said. “We’ll also have some Top Dog senior pups with us hanging out, showing that older dogs are just as cute as puppies but mature enough to hang out at a truly unique brewpub like The Freehouse.”

The Freehouse is located at 701 north Washington Avenue #101, Minneapolis, MN 55401 and open at 6:30 a.m. daily for breakfast until 2:00 a.m. for late night brews. The food is great and a wide selection of beverages offers something for whatever your thirst demands. The Freehouse patio offers plenty of shade and you can be sure there will be plenty of water bowls for the four-legged attendees. Proceeds from adult beverages (and Sidewalk Dog t-shirts) benefit Top Dog Foundation, but dog drinks are on the house.
