Greenville Humane Society is excited to host a new community event, Howling for Hope, on Saturday, August 24 from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m. Proceeds from the event will support the thousands of sick and injured animals treated at the Healing Place every year. The dog-friendly event will consist of food truck vendors, cold drinks, live music and a variety of dog-loving vendors.
Howling for Hope will take place at Greenville Humane Society where canines can check out the new doggy playground. Their owners can enjoy craft beer from Quest Brewing and tasty vegan cuisine from local truck We got the Beets. Common Pops will also be on hand to provide something sweet. Attendees will enjoy live music performed by solo artist Nick Heredia, Love & Rescue and Old Fashioned Manhattan. Also on hand will be Dog Culture, the Unleashed Dog Bar, Fetch Mart and Biltmore Wines, who will be doing wine tastings all afternoon.
Tickets are available for purchase for $10 per person, and if purchased in advance, include one free beer from Quest Brewing Co. Children under the age of 12 can attend for free. Those interested in attending are encouraged to purchase tickets soon as spots are limited. The event will be held at the Humane Society, which is located at 305 Airport Road in Greenville, S.C.
Funds raised will benefit Greenville Humane Society’s Hope Fund which is used to treat over 2,300 sick and injured animals in the Healing Place, which is the only shelter treatment facility in the southeast dedicated to the care of such animals, including those that have long-term health issues and otherwise would be euthanized.
“As a community, Greenville cares deeply about its animals, and we are pleased to both celebrate our furry friends and raise funds to care for future animals that we will be able to treat at the Healing Place,” said Kim Pitman, Chief Executive Officer of the Humane Society.
