We are teaming up with dog-friendly venue, Aloft Birmingham Eastside Hotel, to host a unique networking event for local businesses.

On Friday, 16th September, from 8am until 10am, businesses are invited to experience a ‘Barking Breakfast’ where they will learn wellbeing and relaxation techniques from leading experts, meet some of our four-leggier friends and network with other businesses over a delicious breakfast.

In addition, we will be unveiling some exciting fundraising plans for 2023 so businesses can find out how they can get involved and make a positive difference in their local community.

If that is not enough, there will be a raffle competition with not-to-be-missed prizes.

Fi Harrision, head of fundraising at Brimingham Dogs Home, said: “This year marks 130 years of caring for lost and homeless dogs across the Midlands which is why we wanted to bring the business community together over a special networking event.

“With businesses slowly returning to a new normal with the implementation of hybrid working, we thought it would be a pawsome idea to host a happy-tailed event for local workers before work so they can start their day with a smile. Plus, workers are welcome to bring their own dogs too!”

Attendees are welcome to bring their own dogs too. Lulu Nulty of Aloft Eastside rooms said “we are so pleased to be supporting Birmingham Dogs Home, a fabulous charity close to our hearts. Our hotel is situated close to the original site of the charity and is very dog friendly so we are all very excited to welcome even more special waggy-tailed guests.”
