2011 Fall Benefit

This is Pet Haven's fifth year to hold a Fall Benefit.

Who does it benefit?

The homeless dogs and cats we take in,

we further spay/neuter services locally and by giving grants to out-state and other rescues

we work with to help them alter more of the cats and dogs in their communities,

we work collaboratively through MnPAW to help fund and promote spay/neuter services,

we educate and support humane legislation.

If you have pets you know that vet care costs keep rising just as the costs for human health care keep rising. The animals we rescue have often not been kept up to date on even the most minimal care and repair of broken bones, healing of disease and dental care are needed as well as spay/neuter surgery, vaccination and treatment of fleas, earmites, mange, etc. It isn't just families and individuals who are being hurt by the economy - it is the companion animals that are left behind and neglected.

Who else benefits?

You do!

What a fun night out. Good food, good company, gathering with like-minded folks who have a heart for animals. You'll have a great meal, see and hear stories about some of the animals we've helped, have a chance to bid on varied silent auction items to fund our programs AND, you'll get to see the latest fashions on some of our latest adoptable or recently adopted pets. A style show for cats and dogs - it's hilarious!

Click here to purchase tickets to this year's event: October 29, 2011 at the Softel Hotel in Bloomington MN.

Unable to attend? Collect donation items for the silent auction, help volunteers who will collect, display and set up for the event and take down afterwards, make a donation - no matter how small your donation or time you can share, it will all come together to make a fabulous evening - for the animals we all love.
