There sure is plenty to do around Valentine's Day if you're an animal lover!
Besides the Have a Heart Cocktail Party and Auction being held by the Potter League for Animals, the Annual Hearts for Paws Wine Tasting, sponsored by Forever Paws Animal Shelter in Fall River, is being held on Friday, February 10th.
Forever Paws depends solely on donations to operate their rather impressive no-kill animal shelter at 300 Lynwood Street in Fall River.
I've personally organized fundraisers for this organization and also volunteered at this shelter before, and it truly is a gem. The staff truly care about animals and work very hard to ensure that the animals in their care find wonderful, loving homes. They are generally always filled to capacity with cats, dogs and even smaller creatures like bunnies and hamsters, so any donations are always appreciated.
This is also the location where stray animals that are picked up by New Bedford's Animal Control are transported.
This wonderful fundraiser will be held at the Vintage Barn Wine and Spirits location at 580 GAR Highway in Swansea, MA. The event begins at 7pm and tickets cost only $21.
