The Scottish SPCA will be guests in BrewDog’s online bar The BrewDog Open Arms tomorrow (May 27).

The evening will also feature dog yoga led by Jo-Rosie Haffenden from the School of Canine Science, as well as a pub quiz where beery prizes can be won!

Scotland’s animal welfare charity has a long-standing relationship with the Scottish craft beer brewery, and BrewDog generously funded a sensory garden for dogs at the Scottish SPCA Aberdeenshire Animal Rescue and Rehoming Centre.

BrewDog has been holding regular online events called the BrewDog Open Arms since its global network of craft beer bars closed as part of the coronavirus pandemic, creating a place for the BrewDog community to get together and share their love of craft beer.

Scottish SPCA centre manager Louise Griese said: “We’re absolutely delighted to be involved with BrewDog’s online bar event.

“BrewDog Open Arms evenings have proved to be very popular and it’s an honour to have been invited.

“Members of the public can join for free and ask questions about their pets and find out about our fantastic relationship with BrewDog.

"There’s also going to be a fun quiz centring on dogs, where people can win awesome beery prizes!

“BrewDog funded our sensory garden which is full of different scents and dog-friendly plants which encourage them to use their senses and provides mental stimulation within the surroundings.

"This is invaluable for the hundreds of abused, injured or abandoned dogs that arrive at the centre each year.

“Our behaviour and enrichment expert Alan Grant will be on hand with his dog Otto to provide some tips on how to keep your dog entertained during lockdown.

“There will also be a little bit of doggy yoga for those who fancy a bit of a stretch and relaxation with their pooch!

“It’s going to be a fun and informative evening and we hope as many people as possible will be keen to join us.”

BrewDog’s online bar event featuring the Scottish SPCA will take place from 6-7pm on Wednesday May 27 and people can register for this session - and all other BrewDog Open Arms sessions - by visiting www.brewdog.com/uk/onlinebar.
