C.A.R.E.4Paws' Happy Tails Celebration & Fundraiser

On Sunday, June 13, C.A.R.E.4Paws hosts our Happy Tails Celebration & Fundraiser from 5pm to 6pm. Our FREE, virtual event toasts to and raises funds for C.A.R.E.4Paws' work to keep animals healthy and in their homes, especially during the pandemic, when a growing number of pet owners are struggling to provide for their four-legged companions.

Lots to celebrate! 


In 2020, we tripled the number of pet owners helped to more than 20,000 and this year we are staying just as busy. At our event, you will enjoy many Happy Tails from our work in the community, including stories from pet owners whom we've helped. We also host a live auction with lots of exciting packages to bid on!

To ensure we can continue our important work in 2021 and the years to come, our event is also an important fundraiser for C.A.R.E.4Paws. We hope you will help by joining us as an event sponsor, or “Happy Tails Patron.” We offer several meaningful Patron opportunities that assist pets and pet owners in need with critical services. Our goal: to make sure animals stay happy, healthy and with their families for life.
