The event is hosted annually by Western Sierra Nursery owners, Dianna and Jeff Conaway. The night out includes live music and special human treats from 6 – 8 p.m. with a requested donation of $15 per person for the EMC-SPCA.
Music by Monika and Kirk Moulin of Larkspur, a Taco Bar, tempting raffle, and no-host bar with margaritas, wine and sodas round out a gathering of good friends, all for a good cause. The EMC SPCA is a local, independent nonprofit organization not affiliated with any other SPCA or Humane Society, and is supported solely through private contributions — and as anyone traveling on Highway 49 outside of Oakhurst can see, the new shelter is coming up roses. That brings us back to Whine & Noses.
Established in 1990, the EMC SPCA is dedicated to ensuring the humane treatment of all animals and provides a safe and nurturing environment for unwanted, abandoned and mistreated pets until they can be placed in loving homes.
“Through proactive intervention, public education and public outreach, the EMC SPCA seeks to promote respect for all life by breaking the cycle of abuse, neglect and pet overpopulation in our community,” according to the EMC SPCA website.
