Woofs, Wine and Whiskers, a purr-fect evening

Carson Animal Services Initiative would like to thank everyone who joined us on May 18 for our annual Woofs, Wine and Whiskers wine tasting event. Once again people came together to help animals in need, and we are grateful.

CASI continues to assist the community through our Critter Fixer low-cost spay/neuter voucher program for low-income applicants. To date we have helped over 200 people spay and neuter their pets, directly reducing the numbers of homeless animals. Additionally, CASI is providing support for emergency medical care through Shakespeare Fund and providing educational opportunities to students. Since our inception, CASI has helped to build the new animal shelter, installed a play area, and purchased a new Animal Control vehicle. Yes, we stay busy.

A huge thank you to our auctioneer, Sheriff Kenny Furlong, musicians Doug Lubushkin and Gene Barbera of The Lost Reverends, and the Casino Fandango staff for the wonderful hospitality. Thank you to our sponsors – Casino Fandango, Carson City Toyota, Breakthru Beverage, A Pawsitive Image Grooming Salon, Balletto Vineyards, and Pinnacle Executive Suites. Thank you to Kathleen Stemler for the incredible flier artwork, Ian Mindling for all your help with printing, Patti Stewart for chairing this event, and our amazing CASI volunteers.
