The "Paws for Love" event is presented by the Paws for Love Foundation. Proceeds from this gala event greatly benefit the animals of Sonoma County, the North Bay, and beyond. The Paws for Love Foundation provides resources and funding to shelters, rescue groups, and individuals dedicated to improving the health, welfare, and adoptability of unwanted and abused animals. Funds raised by this event are also used to rehabilitate adoptable animals by providing necessary medical treatment, food and training for animals in foster care programs.
One of Wine Country’s favorite Valentine benefit events, Paws for Love offers an evening of fun, food, fine wine, and Valentine memories to cherish…with all the proceeds benefiting homeless and abused animals. In addition to the sale of artwork painted by talented shelter animals, this event also features silent and live auctions offering award-winning wines, original art by two-legged artists, and many other exciting donations from area businesses and celebrities. A gourmet gallery showcase of Sonoma County wine and cuisine is also included in the price of admission to our 2014 event. We invite you to be our "Special Valentine in 2014" - and help many needy animals at the same time!
Purchase fine art by rescue animals, join in with the auction excitement, and sip Sonoma County wines by Mutt Lynch, Pedroncelli and Kenwood Wineries, enjoy amazing hors d’oeuvres by Ulrike Steinke, and have a glimpse into your future (or past) with Tarot by Louise. DJ Aaron Long returns to spin some tunes for the evening! Meet our team of talented volunteers…all there to welcome you to the 15th Anniversary Paws for Love Gala in February!
Several canine artists will be in attendance to greet our Paws for Love supporters and art lovers. "Silver Paws for Love" guests, hoping for new homes, will be donning their shiny silver bandanas!
A gift of Paws for Love event tickets is not only a very special way of saying "I’m thinking of you", but will also provide assistance to a homeless animal in need at the same time! Guaranteed more popular than fruitcake! Come fetch your tickets to the best Valentine event in Wine Country!
