Toast for Tails

We're asked often what Concern For Animals does, with many assumptions being that we are a shelter. We're not. CFA gives financial support to struggling families and individuals with pets that are in need of spay/neuter procedures and medical care. We also host a weekly Pet Food Bank and now deliver pet food to Meals on Wheels recipients. Many of the seniors that receive food for their pets now no longer need to share the few nutritionally complete meals they receive from Meals on Wheels with their hungry animal(s). We do run a small cat adoption facility and will help people that are seeking to re-home their pets. We will try and place any animal in need of a loving home with the best family available. Toast for Tails 2017 is our biggest fundraiser of the year. We are SO EXCITED- not only for the event itself, but for all of the love and support everyone has given throughout the planning process. It's incredible! You all are amazing and thank you could never be enough.

We are currently accepting donations. You can volunteer, too! It's a fun event and we always have a great time working it! Stay tuned for information on volunteer sign up as the event draws near!

EVERY TIME YOU DONATE, you are helping a family keep their beloved pet. You are helping someone take care of an animal that they desperately want to keep and do not want to be forced to re-home or hand over to a shelter. You are helping owners be responsible with affordable spay/neuter procedures. You're feeding someone's dog/cat/pig/chickens/etc. that would otherwise go without (yes, we help feed farm and pocket pets, too!). When you donate, you keep families together. Please help us make this the best Toast for Tails EVER! Donate, get your tickets, and support a cause so greatly needed in our communities. We can't do it without you!

Get ready for another exciting year! Wineries will compete for Gold, Silver and Best in Show honors for the voters' favorite Red, White and Specialty wines! As an attendee, you'll vote for your favorite wine. We'll tally the votes and the winning wineries will receive an award for their wine! Best in Show will go to the overall crowd favorite!

Stay tuned for details!
