Marco Mutts & Margaritas


Join us at annual Marco Mutts & Margaritas! This event brings hundreds of dog lovers to the Esplanade on Marco Island for a canine friendly fundraising party. While the humans drink their margaritas, the pups can play, socialize, and hang out with other dogs. Participants are encouraged to dress their pups in their best attire strut down the makeshift runway during the Pooch Parade!

Includes: Pooch parade, silent auction, 50/50 raffle and Canine Supply Donation Drive to benefit Guardians of Florida Animal Rescue
