Summer Music and Wine Festival

By Laura Fulda, Humane Society Silicon Valley

Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) will hold its second annual Summer Music and Wine Festival Sunday, August 1. The event is free to the public and will feature live music from one of the Bay Area's favorite rock bands, The Joe Sharino Band. For $20, adults can become a "HSSV Patron for the Day" and enjoy wine and beer tasting, delicious finger foods and special HSSV discounts.

The festival will feature dog agility and flyball demonstrations and a special appearance by Abbie, an HSSV alumni and professional surfing dog, who was seen in the movie "Marmaduke." There will also be a raffle where the public can enter to win various prizes, special giveaways and discount coupons for pet-related products. HSSV will provide information about its dog park, training classes, doggie daycare, boarding and grooming services. The Santa Clara County District Attorney's Office will be on hand with information about the dangers of leaving pets unattended in cars, and how the public can help prevent animal cruelty.

For those looking to adopt a pet, HSSV's adoption galleria will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and feature adorable dogs, cats and rabbits available for adoption. All adoptable animals have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped and medically evaluated and temperament tested. HSSV's Whole Pets Store will also be open for business and the Education Center will offer free arts & crafts for kids.

"Bring the kids and even your family dog to our Animal Community Center for a relaxing afternoon of live music and fun," said HSSV President Christine Benninger. "Whether you're looking to adopt a pet, learn more about our programs and services, or do a little wine and beer tasting, we're sure you'll have fun at our Animal Community Center."
