Speakeasy About Double Merles
The second annual rescue event, Speakeasy About Double Merles, will be held on July 13th & 14th, 2019 from 11am-4pm. Speak! St. Louis is passionate about raising awareness, as well as educating the public in an effort to prevent merle to merle breeding, which results in disabilities. We also want to show the world how inspiring these special needs dogs can be.
Our event will be held in the Great Hall at Purina Farms in Gray Summit, MO. The Great Hall is located in the Purina Event Center and consists of 45,000 square feet of indoor fun and games for dogs, kids, and humans. We plan on having 50 volunteers and 250 people and dogs in attendance each day.
We have many activities planned which include demonstrations by certified trainers, kid-friendly games, CGC testing, dog activities, contests, raffles, a silent auction, swag bags, a petting area and more! Purina will provide the food and drinks as well as an adult-friendly Speakeasy cash bar. We will also have an on-site meet and greet with adoptable dogs.
