Stray Dog Wild Gin, Produced in Greece, Launches First Ever Global Stray Dog Week

NEW YORK – Stray Dog Wild Gin is an award-winning spirit with a cause. Their love of animals led them to donate a portion of Stray Dog Wild Gin sales to animal shelters in order to help stray animals by providing veterinary care, food, and new homes.

But now, they are taking this mission of love a step further and creating the first ever Stray Dog Week, expanding awareness and inspiring others to donate as well, through fun events, great cocktails, adoption and volunteer opportunity awareness. Stray Dog Week will run from April 4-10 in both the U.S. and Greece.

The week will kick off on Stray Animal Day, April 4, with digital events. Mark your calendar for Tuesday, April 5 when two launch parties will occur across the Atlantic. In New York, the event will be hosted by Hudson West, 629 West 57th Street in Manhattan, part of the award-winning Livanos restaurant group and known for its creative cocktails. And in Athens, participants will head to Baba Au Rum, which ranked 14 on 2021’s World’s 50 Best Bars. Both locations will feature special Stray Dog cocktails, and all social media posts tagging Stray Dog Gin (@StrayDogGin), Stay Dog Week (@StrayDogWeek) and using the #StrayDogWeek hashtag will trigger a $1 donation to a beneficiary shelter.

But this isn’t the only chance for dog lovers to get involved – the week of April 4-10, participating bars and restaurants will include Stray Dog Wild Gin cocktails on their menu. Your order of a specialty Stray Dog drink at those venues will trigger a donation from the establishment. By posting the bar’s cocktail creation on social media (tagging the two Stray Dog accounts and using #StrayDogWeek), Stray Dog Wild Gin will donate $1 to a shelter. It’s the perfect way to support a cause (and our furry friends) while enjoying your favorite drink with your favorite gin. To find out which of your favorite New York- and Athens-based establishments are participating, make sure to follow Stray Dog Gin on social media and/or check out the website: https://straydoggin.com/ @StrayDogGin and @StrayDogWeek.
