How does Sunday Brunch sound? Even better, how does Sunday Brunch with your pup sound? If it sounds great, then join us for Barkin’ Brunch at The Refuge with LI-DOG on Sunday, Oct. 8th!

Besides great food, there’ll be drink specials, dog treats, raffles, and more! Don’t forget to ask for the special Doggie Menu! Visit The Refuge Menu to review their Brunch and Brunch Cocktail menus.

In order to be seated at a table, you must have a reservation. The Refuge strongly recommends making your reservation ahead of time by calling 631-577-4444, but you may still make one when you arrive on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Once you and your pup are out on the patio, please stop by the LI-DOG table to sign in and check out all the great raffle baskets we’ve put together!

This is an important fundraising event for LI-DOG. Please do take a chance on winning one of the GREAT raffle baskets generously donated by our sponsors— Bagel Boss, Brutus Bone Broth, My Human “N” Me, Palomino’s RestaurantPersonalize Your Pet, Stew Leonard’s East Meadow, AND Tito’s Vodka. Plus, thank you to Alan Meschkow, Gail Meschkow, Bailey Applebee Dog, and one Anonymous donor for their creative and much appreciated individual donations!

LI-DOG would like to extend special thanks to Tito’s Vodka and The Refuge. Not only is Tito’s donating one of their popular raffle baskets to the event, but we want to thank them and The Refuge for including LI-DOG in the Tito’s x Refuge donation program for Long Island nonprofits. We are so grateful for their generous support!
