Can sipping on a glass of wine in the beautiful Paso Robles wine country really make a positive difference? It may sound too good to be true, but the answer is YES. During the upcoming weekend of April 8th-9th, you can make a difference for homeless pets at the Wine 4 Paws event. During the weekend, wine and pet lovers can delight in the delightful flavors of over seventy participating wineries and some olive oil companies, all of which will be donating either their tasting fees or a percentage of their weekend sales to the Woods Humane Society.
The Woods Humane Society and Woods Human Society-North County are organizations devoted to performing life-saving work for animals. This non-profit organization cares for over 1,500 dogs and cats each year. To help promote their influential work, take part in this weekend of wine tasting to help save our beloved four-legged companions.
