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 2015 event. We invite you to be our "Special Valentine in 2015" - and help many needy animals at the same time!
