While the economy continues to dwindle, so do funds to help animals get off the street, out of facilities, and into homes. This special happy hour at the Local will help raise funds for puppies and kitties in need.

Happy Hour for the Animals takes place today from 4:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at the Local (931 Nicollet Mall) in downtown Minneapolis. The cover charge is $5 at the door, and there will be drink specials and a silent auction as well.

All proceeds benefit Twin Cities Pet Rescue, which serves to place local homeless pets (that may otherwise have been euthanized) with caring families in temporary (and ultimately) permanent homes. For more info visit
