Greeting card holidays aside, nothing expresses love on the daily like the companionship of animals.
Sadly, not all companion animals enjoy the health and warmth of a good home.
“Bark and Wine with your Valentine” is a fundraiser supporting Animals of Kay County and the Ponca City Humane Society.
The event will be held at the Ponca City Country Club on Saturday, February 24, hosted by Suzanne and Fred Boettcher with a theme of “breaking the silence on animal overpopulation.
Cocktails will be served at 6 p.m., with a “SPAYgetti and No Balls” dinner to be served at 7 p.m.
Dinner and dance tickets can be purchased for a $100 donation at the Ponca City Humane Society at 900 West Prospect Avenue.
The Humane Society is a no-kill shelter serving the Ponca City area.
For each ticket sold the Humane Society will be able to spay/neuter one pet or provide full vaccines and a heartworm check for one animalor will provide 2 bags of dog food for shelter pets.
Financial donations collected from supporters help the shelter continue to operate in every way. Donation funds are used — and needed — to feed, spay/neuter, and vaccinate the animals coming into the shelter, as well as keep them warm and safe with proper housing and facility upkeep.
Pet, kennel, and business sponsorships are available as other ways to contribute to the Humane Society’s efforts.
Every donation directly benefits the continuation of the shelter and the saving of animals in the community.
“Being a private, non-profit organization, these fundraisers are so beneficial in helping people know their donation and their support helps us to continue helping animals in need and finding good homes for homeless pets,” said Humane Society Executive Director Patricia Amadour. “We hope everyone can enjoy a nice night at the Country Club while also providing us with much needed support.”
