2017 Wines & Canines Run/Walk
EVENT DATE: Oct 01, 2017
ALERT: This year, our help is urgently needed for the pets rescued from Hurricane Harvey that are being transported to the Kent Animal Shelter and other East End shelters! Some have needed extra medical attention like Sparky who was rescued from a crisis situation in Texas. As if his start in life was not difficult enough, he was diagnosed with a diaphragmatic hernia or a hole in his diaphragm making it difficult for him to breathe. It can be repaired with a surgical procedure. Your donation today will help get Sparky the medical care he needs.
Join us for our annual Wines & Canines Walk/Run for homeless dogs at the Kent Animal Shelter from 11AM to 2PM at the Baiting Hollow Vineyard, 2114 Sound Avenue in Baiting Hollow! Enjoy North Fork wine & farm country during peak harvest season. Get in a beautiful walk or run, meet other pet families, and try your luck at the prize auction and 50-50 raffle! Dress your pet for the pet costume contest and the people/pet look alike contest. We'll have a special door prize plus pop up prizes along route. Food and wine sales benefit the rescue horses at the vineyard. Stay to enjoy live music provided by the Baiting Hollow Vineyard. All proceeds will help animals in crisis. Whether they've been rescued out of harm's way, abandoned or abused, your support ensures they will have a new chance at a good life in a loving family.The Kent Animal Shelter is an award-winning private nonprofit established almost 50 years ago. The shelter relies entirely on the support of individuals and charities to shelter and feed homeless pets, as well as find them loving forever homes, give them veterinary care, and help educate the public about animal welfare.
