After a rainy morning on Saturday, Jan. 12, the sun came out just in time for the Mutts and Mimosas event that allowed potential dog parents to sip an organic bubbly concoction while meeting dogs in need of a home. The West L.A. nonprofit Wags and Walks, whose mission is to rescue family-friendly dogs from shelters and find them forever homes, hosted the puppy adoptions.
Each dog at the event was given a specially designed bandanna with Tocaya Organica’s agave plant logo to wear while strutting around the dog park and mingling with prospective pet parents. Tocaya marketing manager Jessica Rupnik said the fast-casual restaurant’s charitable arm, Tocaya Life, enjoys giving back to the community that gives to them.
The good news is that two of the five dogs at the event, handsome Humphrey and marvelous Mr. Rogers, were adopted out to loving fur-ever homes.
