Wine Tasting Benefit to Feed Animals

Jackson, Michigan – Each year almost 1000 animals are fed and sheltered at Cascades Humane Society while they wait to find new homes. Each animal is vaccinated, spayed or neutered and micro-chipped. “The average cost per animal for testing, medical care and sheltering costs almost $500 but only a small portion of this is recovered in adoption fees,” said Debra Carmody, Executive Director. “Fortunately, we have a group of Friends who coordinate numerous events to raise money for the animals.”

Friends of Cascades Humane Society are hosting a Wine Tasting Party and Silent Auction at Daryl’s Downtown on Friday, April 17 from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. Funds from this event will help cover the cost of food for the animals. Tickets are $40 each or $70 for two.

Cascades Humane Society connects animals in need with people who care by providing a number of services, including adoptions, low-cost spay and neuters, Pet Food Pantry, lost/found, and humane education programs.

For ticket information, call Cascades Humane Society at (517) 787-PETS.
