AUSTIN (KXAN)- BarkHappy is inviting all two and four legged friends to join in their Howl-O-Ween charity bar crawl to support Austin Dog Rescue.

BarkHappy, a local company that specializes in helping dog owners find anything dog-friendly from restaurants to hotels, was created by Ninis Samuel after he adopted his dog Kerby, Chief-Puppy-Officer. The Howl-O-Ween charity bar crawl will benefit Austin Dog Rescue and will serve as a dog-owner networking event.

“We’re all about you having a social life with your dog,” Samuel said. “We want you to go more places, meet new friends and go to more places.”

Hundreds of dog-owners will embark on the crawl that will be at Rainey Street on Sunday, Oct. 30 from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. and will feature three dog-friendly stops. The Lustre Pearl, Bungalow and Container Bar will welcome dogs and their adults during the crawl.

Samuel and Kerby came to KXAN to speak with Gigi Barnett about what owners can expect at next week’s charity bar crawl.
