EMANCIPET'S VIRTUAL LUNCH-IN The passionately pro-animal nonprofit Emancipet is hosting this "Virtual Lunch-In," during which host Jim Spencer and Emancipet CEO Amy Mills will give you a behind-the-scenes look at how Emancipet is serving people and pets and adapting during challenging times. Bonus: You’ll also meet Emancipet’s Philadelphia team and get a tour of their new clinic in Houston’s Monroe Medical Plaza. Double bonus: There'll be a dog-inspired Tito’s Handmade Vodka cocktail demonstration and a pet talent show (with dog and cat tricks). So order in, pack a lunch, or prep a picnic for you and your favorite domestic mammal – just be sure to tune in for a good pet-affirming time. Fri., May 14, noon.
