Events


The SPCA will be presenting three special events in our 2017 fiscal year. These events are an integral part of the operating budget as all directly benefit the programs and services the SPCA provides Erie County citizens and animals every day of the year.

150th Anniversary Gala
To celebrate 150 years of compassion, the SPCA will be hosting a Gala at the Hotel @ The Lafayette on January 28, 2017. The evening will feature a three-course meal, music, a silent auction, and more. Tickets will be on sale in December.

Wine and Wags Social
Presented by Kiss 98.5, our Wine & Wags Social is a wine and food tasting event for people and their dogs! Wine & Wags will be held on June 6, 2017. Guests will enjoy sampling wine, beer, and food from local wineries and restaurants. There will also be several pet-themed vendors and exhibitors as well as a silent auction and basket raffle.

Paws in the Park Walk
As the SPCA’s longest-running fundraiser, Paws in the Park invites people to come with (or without) their dog to for a scenic two-mile walk at Beaver Island State Park. The event will be held on September 23, 2017 and will include the opportunity for participants to interact with 50+ pet-related vendors and exhibitors, dog contests, an agility course for the dogs, and fun for children and adults alike. Participants are encouraged to raise pledges that directly benefit the people and animals that the SPCA assists. In return, these participants earn incredible prizes.
