Local business puts pet adoption in focus
Yappy Hour
It's All About Me selfie studio partnered with the Humane Society for Greater Savannah for a pet adoption event Saturday.

It’s All About Me selfie studio on Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, along with the Humane Society for Greater Savannah, hosted a pet adoption Saturday afternoon called Yappy Hour. Several cats and dogs were brought to the studio in hopes they would be adopted.

Visitors took free selfies outside the studio in a makeshift booth, while other participants paid a fee to take selfies inside the studio in rooms with themes. Portions of the proceeds will be donated to the Humane Society for Greater Savannah.  

“We decided to host this event because on August 8 it was Cat Day and on August 2h was Dog Day and we wanted the community to come out to the studio and take pictures with their pets,” said Khloe Villafane, the studio’s 21-year-old owner. “At It’s All About Me selfie, we also understand the importance of adopting animals, so we decided to reach out to the humane shelter in case we have people who are interested in bringing home a new fur baby.”

No pets were adopted Saturday. Nina Schultz, the adoption manager for Human Society for Greater Savannah said in anyone interested in adopting a pet can go to www.humanesocietysav.orgor visit the shelter at 7215 Sallie Mood Drive in Savannah.
