Happy Tails Celebration & Fundraiser

On Sunday, May 22, C.A.R.E.4Paws hosts our Happy Tails Celebration & Fundraiser at the Music Academy of the West, 4pm to 8pm. Our event highlights our work in the community and features heartfelt Happy Tails from some of the many pet owners we help daily to keep animals healthy and in their homes. In 2021, our virtual event raised more than $110,000 thanks to our incredible sponsors and donors! 

Join us for a fun evening!

Enjoy heartfelt stories, or “happy tails,” from pet owners whom we’ve helped along with virtual tours of our work as well as a live auction with exciting packages. Guests attending "live" will also savor great food, wine and meowgaritas as well as acoustic guitar music in a beautiful setting.  

Support our work as a Happy Tails Patron

To ensure we can continue our important work in 2022 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 a Happy Tails Sponsor. We offer several meaningful sponsor opportunities that assist pets and pet owners in need with critical services. Our goal: to make sure animals stay healthy and in their homes. 

A huge thank you to our 2022 Happy Tails supporters!
