The trees are lit at Valley Animal Center for the annual Kitty Christmas & Merry Mutts Open House. Join in on the holiday cheer on Saturday, December 7th from 4:00pm – 7:00pm by giving to the animals in need!

The Valley Animal Center is holding a holiday donation drive for crucial supplies needed to care for over 400 animals, culminating in an incredible Holiday Open House sponsored by Suncrest Bank! Guests of all ages will be lavished with holiday cheer, adorable animals, and delicious appetizers. Adults 21 and older can ring in the holiday spirit by sampling some of the Valley’s best local wines and beer, including a special red blend called “Rescue Red,” created by Kings River Winery to support the homeless animals at Valley Animal Center! Guests can get some holiday shopping done by entering for a chance to win some incredible prizes.

Admission to the event is a monetary donation or an in-kind donation for the animals from their Holiday Wish List, which can be found at https://valleyanimal.org/event/kitty-christmas-merry-mutts-open-house-2/. Needs include a variety of often overlooked, everyday necessities for the no-kill shelter, such as canned wet cat food, bleach, anti-bacterial dish soap, and HE laundry detergent. These items are essential for the shelter to operate year-round and donations from the public help to ensure that all of the animals will continue to be well taken care of. For an additional $8, guests can purchase a souvenir Valley Animal Center wine glass to participate in wine sampling. For every Rescue Red bottle purchased, $10 will be donated back to Valley Animal Center to help save more homeless animals in the Central Valley.
