Last week some co-workers and I attended an event hosted by the Humane Society for Hamilton County (Indiana). The Hamilton County Humane Society is Indiana’s only open admission, truly no-kill shelter. Their Mission statement is :
We believe in second chances … and third … and fourth … In fact, we believe every adoptable animal deserves every chance at finding a forever home. That’s why we operate as Indiana’s only open admission truly no-kill shelter. Any animal that can be saved, rehabilitated, or treated is never euthanized. That’s our promise to them… and to you. After all, one of them may be your soul mate.
The event featured wine tasting from a number of local wineries, a silent auction, delicious hors d’oeuvres, and a specialty cocktail, the Pawsmopoltian. Three very special wines were also available, Tinki’s “Ain’t no Stray” Chardonnay, Ralph’s Chianti Kid and Z’Ann-Gria. 100% of the proceeds benefited the shelter. In attendance were some adorably adoptable pets including Tiger Lily, Ebony, Boo Radley, and Charlotte. A good time was had by all.
Some upcoming events include Paws for a Cause 5-K, and the 6th Annual Ruff & Ride in support of Pets Healing Vets.
