Next week, Homeward Animal Shelter will hold its 8th annual Wags, Whiskers & Wine fundraiser, with all proceeds going toward food, housing, toys, leashes, and veterinary care for the cats and dogs in their care.

The wine will be provided by Happy Harry’s Bottle Shop, one of the event’s main sponsors, while local food vendors provide hors d’oeuvres. Both a silent auction and a live auction will give patrons the opportunity to win works of art, sporting tickets, baked goods, and passes for free vacations.

In addition to money made through ticket sales and auction items, general donations are welcome throughout the evening. A slideshow will play on a projector screen, featuring shelter animals, their names, and the dates they were rescued, so everyone will know where their donations are going.

This year the venue will be the Sanctuary Events Center, a local site for weddings, concerts, and private events. The Center was established by Lutheran missionary William F. Ulery back in 1886, who raised funds for it by going door-to-door. It was purchased by Kilbourne Group in 2013.

To reserve tickets, call 701-364-9013. For more information, head to homewardonline.org.
