Events


The SPCA presents three special events each year which offer something for everyone - pets and people alike! These events, our Wine and Wags Social, Paws in the Park and Lights of Love, all directly benefit the programs and services the SPCA provides Erie County citizens and animals every day of the year.

Lights of Love

Lights of Love is a tribute event taking place on December 4, 2014 at the SPCA Serving Erie County during our annual Radiothon. It is a way for people to honor their family, friends, and pets. For a $20 donation, a white light can be purchased in memory of a person or pet or a colored light can be purchased in honor of a person or pet. During the Lights of Love tree lighting ceremony, the lights will be illuminated as a way to honor and remember the pets and people who have touched our lives.

Wine and Wags Social
Presented by Kiss 98.5 and Premier Wine and Spirits, our Wine & Wags Social is a wine and food tasting event for people and their dogs! Wine & Wags will be held on the SPCA's beautiful Paws-Way on June 10, 2015. Guests will enjoy sampling wine, beer, and food from local wineries and restaurants. There will also be several pet-themed vendors and exhibitors plus photos by Migz Media Group.

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 a two-mile walk at Beaver Island State Park. The event will be held on September 26, 2015 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.
