The Hydrant Club held its inaugural “Pups and Poetry” event, an evening of poetry readings by deeply talented local poets, on Saturday, June 2.
Pulling from Las Vegas’ rich community of talented writers, poets read their work, shared their inspiration and offered copies of their works for sale all in the name of charity, with proceeds benefitting Alzheimer’s Poetry Project Nevada. In addition, dogs were dressed in Vegas Golden Knights gear as the hockey game was live streamed for fans during the event.
The mission of the Alzheimer’s Poetry Project Nevada (APP NV) is to facilitate the creativity of people living with Alzheimer’s disease and related dementia. APP NV uses classic, well-loved poems to connect students and people living with dementia.
The Hydrant Club, a canine social club and training academy, offers a 9,500 square-foot outdoor park and adjacent 3,100 square-foot indoor space complete with daycare, overnight boarding, bathing facilities and retail. Located in the heart of downtown Las Vegas, equal parts play space, educational facility and social club, The Hydrant Club is embarking on a mission to evolve the nature of dog care facilities, turning them into places where people go WITH their dogs for social activity, exercise and learning.
