Thank you to everyone who attended, sponsored, or donated for this year's Bark & Wine! The auction was conducted by Jack Granger with Granger, Thagard & Associates, Inc.
Welcome to the 9th Annual Bark & Wine Gala! Benefiting Shelby Humane Hosted by the Board of Directors of Shelby Humane
Saturday, July 21, beginning at 6:00pm
Bark & Wine is always an exciting event but this year is special. The setting for Bark & Wine 2018 will be the beautiful Grand Bohemian Hotel in Mountain Brook. You will find additional information in the Aboutpage.
The live auction will include 12 fire hydrants that have been decorated by local artists. Our thanks to the Mueller Company Water Products Division in Albertville AL for donating the hydrants. You can view a few of these unique creations on the Auction page, along with some of the many other auction items.
Great food, a beautiful setting, exciting auction items, a few hundred friends... and your participation will also benefit our Shelby Spay Neuter program. This program is responsible for nearly 12,000 free or low cost surgeries in your community over the last eight years. The result has been a 30% reduction in stray or surrendered animals received by Shelby Humane. Shelby Humane is launching an aggressive plan to increase the availability of free and low cost spay/neuter surgeries.
We recently received a big challenge from a donor that shares our commitment to animal welfare. If we can raise $100,000, VP Funds will match it. The proceeds from Bark & Wine will not only help us reach that goal, but the VP Funds matching gift will DOUBLE the impact of what we raise with your support!
