Whiskers & Wine A Stunning Success @ SacCounty Animal Shelter

Whiskers & Wine A Stunning Success @ SacCounty Animal Shelter

Sacramento -- Susan Harris, Whiskers & Wine volunteer guide at the Sacramento County Animal Shelter ( a kind, extremely-patient soul ), shares smiles with a gentle adult cat ready for adoption.

Susan says, "Adopt two -- they're small," as she introduces me to dozens of furry friends needing new homes and a whole lotta love...  and they need you now!

Last Saturday's fundraiser was a stunning success with attendees bidding on auction items with generous hearts.  And, hopefully, they ( or you ) wiill adopt these shelter pets into forever homes.

Melissa Luke, volunteer, says she's "impressed with the turnout" while pouring wine tastes with Bill Gage.

Whiskers & Wine raises funds that assist Mechelle Crites, Animal Control Officer, to rescue abused, abandoned and neglected animals and bring them to safe harbor at the shelter.
