Tri-Lakes Humane Society will be hosting the Bow Wow Meow Luau on Saturday, June 4th. The early summer celebration you know and love will be held at Dewey Mountain Recreation Center. The event will begin at 5PM. The Bow Wow Meow Luau will celebrate the shelter’s 80th anniversary and feature live music by Take Note, a silent auction, a raffle, hors d’oeuvres, prizes for best Hawaiian outfit, wine, beer, and more.

We’re excited to bring back the Luau everyone knows and loves in time for our 80th anniversary and to kick off the summer season. We have some exciting things in store for this year’s event and thanks to our amazing community, the silent auction will have some wonderful items too!

Tickets to the Bow Wow Meow Luau are $60 or $30 for people ages 30 or younger. To register or find out more information, email or call 518-354-0202.

We are so grateful to all of the artists, from children to professionals and everything in-between, for donating their time and talents to the animals at the shelter!
