Letter: Thank you Wine 4 Paws for supporting local animal shelter
– We as a community are all aware of the ever-increasing population of animals in need of adoption among us in SLO County, which is why I want to thank those at the Woods Humane Society for creating opportunities such as the Wine 4 Paws event planned for this weekend.
Woods Humane is a non-profit organization, meaning they rely solely upon the generosity of donations and sponsorships from their community in order to care for the cats and dogs which reside at their no-kill shelter awaiting their forever homes. Last year, the event raised over $75,000, which went towards the care of over 3,000 dogs and cats.
As a volunteer at the Woods Humane Society, I have seen firsthand the change that takes place within the loving walls of the shelter, and urge those of age to partake in the Wine 4 Paws event to contribute, so that all of our fuzzy and furry friends in need can get the help, shelter, and rehabilitation they deserve.
