Get your tickets for the "Wags & Whiskers Gala" Nov. 20th

Wags & Whiskers Gala

Time is quickly approaching for the Wags & Whiskers Gala scheduled to take place Friday, November the 20th 2009. Kevin and Robin Carey, owners of the Outer Barks, are organizing an event titled Wags & Whiskers Gala.

The Carey’s won the use of the North Carolina Aquarium at a live auction in November and decided to donate use of the facility (complete with aquarium staffing and equipment) for a fundraising event.

The Wags & Whiskers Gala will be held on Friday, November 20, 2009, 6:30 -10:30 at the North Carolina Aquarium.

The Wags & Whiskers Gala would bring all five animal welfare organizations together for the first time. This process could help to strengthen the voice of the animals via our group and might allow us to effect change on many levels for animals on the Outer Banks and Currituck. 

The event would benefit the following non-profit charitable animal welfare organizations:

1. Animal Lovers Assistance League (Currituck Shelter)
2. Coastal Humane Society
3. Feline Hope 
4. Friends of Pooh Canine and Feline Cancer Fund 
5. Outer Banks SPCA (Dare County Shelter)

The event is envisioned as an evening of music, band ‘The Crowd’, dancing, ‘Selvis’, female Elvis impersonator, heavy hors d’oeuvres, beer/wine service, silent and live auction and an educational forum for all non-profits to educate the attendees on their respective organizations. All proceeds after expenses would be distributed equally among the five organizations identified.

Ticket prices are $45.00 single and $75.00 a couple.
HOPE TO SEE YOU THERE!!!!!!!!

November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month


November is Adopt a Senior Pet Month.
This National Pet Event is sponsored by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

There are many reasons a senior pet may end up in an animal shelter.
Many families are unable to care for their pets and have turn them over to animal shelters in hopes of finding them a new forever home. This is heart breaking.

Some senior pets are owned by single senior owners that have passed away, leaving loving companions all alone in search of a new home. We know of one such pet in our community that has found a new forever home and we will share that story with you this month.

Even though a lot of families will pick a young kitten or puppy from a shelter there are great advantages to choosing a senior pet. Most senior pets are already trained and tend to be calmer.
Senior pets still have a lot of love to share and should be consider when looking for a new addition to your family.

If you are considering a new pet please save the life of a pet waiting for a forever home in one of our area animal shelters.
