"Drink Wine, Save Puppies!" A Canyon County Animal Shelter Fundraiser

Canyon County Animal Shelter

The Canyon County Animal Shelter is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to serving the community by providing compassionate care for homeless pets. The animal shelter works to find that forever home that each animal deserves. CCAS custom matches each family with a pet that fits into their lifestyle and needs. Since over 70,000 puppies and kittens are born each year in the United States, over half of those accidental, CCAS spays or neuters each animal before adoption. Not only are adopted pets spayed and neutered, they are also vaccinated. Dogs are micro-chipped and cats will receive an ID tag. Initial supplies, such as a slip leash or pet carrier, are provided for taking home the pet.

In addition to adoption services, Canyon County Animal Shelter also works to provide a loving environment for all animals and to educate the community on responsible pet care. CCAS provide interested parties with booklets and educational material for the care of a pet, and encourages the community to remember the number 4 (months) for neutering and spaying. CCAS also sponsors a foster program that places pets in temporary but loving homes.

Drink Wine, Save Puppies!

Drink Wine, Save Puppies! is a dinner and wine fest event that hopes to raise funds for the Canyon County Animal Shelter. Although pet adoptions are paid for, the new families only pay a fraction of the actual cost. The animal shelter relies on donations and fundraisers to provide the funds that benefit the dogs and cats at the shelter. Join CCAS Thursday, September 12th, at 6:00 p.m. at the Bird Stop Coffee House in Caldwell, Idaho. The band “Almost Dangerous” will provide the entertainment at this no-host dinner and wine event. The cover charge is $10, and all cover and raffle proceeds will go directly to the care of the animals at CCAS. Due to the alcoholic beverages being served, attendees must be 21 years or older. Make a difference in these innocent animals’ lives by drinking wine at this event.
