HSWC celebrates most profitable Tails and Ales in history

registration open polar plunge

The Humane Society of Warren County celebrated a fundraising record after the 12th annual Tails and Ales.

The yearly cash party and silent auction welcomed 250 animal lovers from around the community Saturday, November 18th at the Front Royal Moose lodge and helped the humane society reach $25,000 donated to the shelter.

This number greatly surpassed previous years which averaged between $10,000- $15,000 per event.

This year’s Tails and Ales was amped up thanks to the addition of three new games, the introduction of basket sponsors, and by raising the value and quality of the auction baskets and items.

In total, there were over 20 different baskets and items available for auction.

Interim Executive Director Kayla Wines has led the fundraiser since 2018 and has worked to elevate the event each year.

She said, “It has become a favorite in the local community and 2023 was the most profitable in its history, raising $25,000 for the shelter! We absolutely could not pull this off if it weren’t for the hard work of staff, volunteers, and board of directors.”

Furever Friday – Spanky

Meet Spanky!

This month we are trying something new – BLIND DATES! You tell us what type of personality you want in a dog and let us choose your perfect match. Think eHarmony, but like, for pets. pHarmony, if you will… Even if you end up leaving with a different animal, your adoption fee is half off for participating in our blind date special.  Why are we doing blind dates?

 

Spanky is one of those reasons. He acts tough and intimidating in his kennel but is a big silly baby outside! He is 1 year old, neutered, vaccinated, chipped and ready for love! He met another pup this week and was so excited to play with her, he also did well meeting our resident cat, Larry.

Don’t judge too quickly when you see these dogs at the lowest point in their life. They’re amazing and can’t wait to prove it to you. They just want YOUR attention.
