Dog lovers united at the Riverfront Seafood and Steak restaurant for their monthly "Yappy Hour".

For only $10, owners and their furry friends enjoy drinks, hor devoures and doggy treats while mingling on the deck.

The Albany Humane society teamed up with the restaurant to raise money for the shelter and any medical procedures needed.

Pets that are available for adoption were also brought out for the public to see.

Coordinator Jesse Freeman says, "It just gives us an opportunity for people to bring their pets out, and kind of see what we have in our shelter as well. All proceeds are going to the Helpful Hounds fund which helps with medical cases and heartworm treatments."

Look out for the next Yappy hour next month. Coordinators ask that all dogs be up to date on necessary shots and are gentle-natured.
