Bark & Wine

Sat. Oct 16th, 2021

5:00 pm - 9:00 pm

Bark & Wine is your chance to make a big difference while sipping a glass of wine and cuddling a puppy! Join us to celebrate 100 years of helping people help animals. New this year, our supporters will get to choose how they experience Bark & Wine—from the comfort of home or in person at the shelter!

** There are a very limited number of tickets remaining for this event. If you are interested in claiming one, please contact Sarah at as soon as possible. Thank you!**

In-Person Celebration

Guests who join us in person will choose from a Happy Hour (5:00-7:00 pm) or a Dessert Hour (7:00-9:00 pm) event, to keep crowds smaller. A cash bar and individually-portioned snack boxes from The Vibrant Veg will be available at each, as well as plenty of adorable animals to snuggle!

Virtual Celebration

Guests who join us from home will receive a party box curated by The Vibrant Veg, stuffed with tasty treats from shops like Madison-favorite Heirloom Bakery, plus your choice of wine or locally brewed beer from Karben4. There will also be a short pre-recorded video available online for you to see how your dollars are making a big difference for animals in need.

Online Auction and Matching Gift

We'll have over 100 items generously donated by local businesses, DCHS volunteers, and other supporters available in our online auction. All proceeds go to provide comfort and care to our animals. If you are interested in donating to the auction, please contact Sarah Linn.

We will also have a matching gift opportunity so that donations made during the event will have twice the impact. If you'd like to be a part of our matching challenge, please contact Sarah Linn.
