MILWAUKEE, WI, July 8th, 2021 – Skilos, pronounced skee-los, is happy to announce a dog meetup they have deemed as the Skilos Dog Boop! This event will take place on Sunday, July 18th 2021 from 1pm until 4pm in the East Side Art Lot. Many thanks to The Eastside Business Improvement District for their assistance in reserving the space.

The Skilos Dog Boop is aimed at generating a fun event for dog owners and their fur companions! Skilos will be raising money for the Wisconsin Humane Society through some really fantastic raffle prizes during the course of the event and donating a portion of all in-store sales that day. Wisconsin Humane Society will be in attendance to help spread the word of all the amazing things they do for the community. Joining Skilos & the Wisconsin Humane Society at the event will be another newly opened Eastside business, Selfie Hop MKE. Selfie Hop will provide a fun photo area for the attendees and their pets! A business set to open this fall, Dogtopia, is amongst the list of vendors joining in on the fun as well. Rounding out the list of vendors in attendance will be Stella & Chewy’s.

“The goal of the event is to create a fun and unique atmosphere for dog owners on the Eastside of Milwaukee,” states Director of Marketing, Zachary Dewitt. “To be able to team up with some other local businesses is such an added bonus. You see the impact when local communities all support each other and it’s something very important for us to be a part of as we grow with the Eastside Community.”

Director of Operations, Jerad Wagner adds, “To reiterate Zach’s point. It’s very important to us that we are able to not only build ourselves up with this business but to build the community as a whole. We’re just getting started and this is the first of many fun and hopefully impactful opportunities we have moving forward.”
