SPCA Special Events
The SPCA presents three special events each year which offer something for everyone - pets and people alike! The events, My Pet is Cuter than Yours Photo Contest, the Wine & Wags Social, and Paws in the Park Walk, all directly benefit the programs and services the SPCA provides Erie County citizens and animals every day of the year.
My pet is Cuter Than Yours Photo Contest
The SPCA is holding its fourth annual online photo contest, My Pet is Cuter than Yours from March 1 - 31, 2013. Participants upload photos of their pets to a designated page, MyPetisCuterThanYours.org, and then encourage friends and family members to vote (and donate) on their behalf. All of the money raised supports the programs and services of the SPCA Serving Erie County. At the end of the contest, there will be one winner from each of the new categories: Kids and Pets, Best Expression, Sleeping Pets, and Best Action Shot.
Does your pet have what it takes to be the cutest pet in 2013? You'll have to join in on the fun to see! Visit MyPetisCuterthanYours.org to participate!
Wine and Wags Social
Presented by Kiss 98.5 and The Premier Group, Wine and Wags is a wine and food tasting event for people and their dogs! Held on the SPCA's beautiful Paws-Way on June 12, 2013, attendees will enjoy sampling wine and food from local restaurants. There are also 40+ pet-themed vendors and exhibitors, dog contests hosted by a Kiss 98.5 personality, and the chance for attendees to see how clever their canine is in the agility course! Event attendees enjoy sampling wines and food prepared by local restaurants. (And the dogs enjoyed taking quick dips the pools!)
Paws in the Park Walk
As the SPCA’s longest-running fundraiser, the Paws in the Park Walk invites people to come with (or without) their dog to a two-mile walk at Beaver Island State Park.
Held on September 28, 2013, the day will include the opportunity for participants to interact with 50+ pet-related vendors and exhibitors, judged dog trick, costume, and dog-owner look-alike contests, an agility course for the dogs, and fun for children and adults alike with inflatable bounce houses.
Participants are encouraged to raise pledges that directly benefit the people and animals the SPCA assists. In return, these participants win incredible prizes!
