“Sips for Snips” Benefit
Haywood Spay/Neuter is holding a “Sips for Snips” wine tasting fundraiser at Bosu's Wine Shop.
138 Miller Street, Waynesville , Friday, February 21 with drop in from 5pm-8pm. “We are not
only focusing on February as Spay-Neuter Awareness Month, but trying to raise some funds
to continue providing $10 spay/neuter services to pet owners on government assistance
programs”, stated Connie Hewitt, President. “We are hoping the public comes out and supports
us in this endeavor. “It should be a good time for everyone and Bosus is offering 10% off a bottle
and 15% off a case of the four wines sampled. Plus there will be cheese, crackers, etc to go along with
the tasting”, she said.
“Pet owners need to realize that cats and dogs can go into heat at 4 months to 6 months. It
isn’t only the spring time that owners have to worry about. It’s right now”, Connie added.
“On our last transport to Humane Alliance in Asheville this month, 3 female dogs and 3 female cats were in heat; and two cats were in the first stage of pregnancy. That is approximately 40 unplanned for
puppies and kittens that would have been needing homes or ending up in the county
shelter! We just can’t emphasize enough the importance of spay/neuter not only to prevent
unplanned litters but the healthful benefits it provides to dogs and cats”, she exclaimed.
Tickets are $25 and can be obtained at Bosus Wine Shop and Haywood Spay/Neuter, 182 Richland
Street. For more information call Haywood Spay/Neuter at 452-1329.
