Save the lives of Local Homeless Animals while enjoying an evening of wine, food, music, original art & other great auction items.
Art and Wine mixed with some music and fun can save the lives of homeless animals who have no where else to go if we don't help them. We have saved over 1300 lives through rescue and impacted well over 1000 others in the community by providing food, veterinary care, litter and transportation. At times, our donors have even provided food and necessities for individuals and families with animals in need...and still do even beyond the borders of NC. We spend $10,000 to $20,000 per month in veterinary bills. All staff and facility overhead are paid privately by a supporter. All money raised by this event will be used only for veterinary care. We receive no governmental funds and operate only on donations and fundraisers. We are very often the LAST and ONLY HOPE for so many who are out of time and out of options. When all other shelters are full or don't accept animals, we make every effort to save them. Veterinary expenses for perfectly healthy cats averages $315, but at times can run over $10,000 for cats and kittens with serious illness or injuries. We would like to thank Emerge Gallery who is donating the space and staff for this event at no cost!
