Paws for Love gala on May 21

The Paws for Love Foundation will present its 23rd annual Gala on Saturday, May 21, from 6 to 10 p.m. at the Finley Community Center, 2060 W. College Ave. in Santa Rosa. The gala will feature an auction of “Art by Shelter Animals” — paintings created by talented pets who use their paws, tails, and whiskers to create masterpieces.

Fifty framed paintings – accompanied by artist biographies — will be sold to raise money for the Paws for Love Foundation, a nonprofit foundation which provides a safety net of resources for shelters and rescues by funding emergency surgeries, rescue operations, spay and neuter clinics, and senior-tosenior pet adoptions.

The event will have live and silent auctions, a wine wave auction, and a “Silver Paws for Love” red carpet parade of senior dogs.

Beverages for the event will be provided by Mutt Lynch, Pedroncelli, Iron Horse, Foppiano, Korbel Champagne and Lagunitas Brewing Company.

Tickets purchased in advance are a $50 donation. Tickets at the door will be $60. For tickets and more information, visit
