Feed Our Furry Friends! The Event!

Thanks to everyone who came out to the inaugural Feed Our Furry Friends!! event to support the Pet Food Assistance Program, and big thanks to everyone from the Animal Compassion Network and all our wonderful volunteers who helped make it happen!

We'll have more posts highlighting some of our sponsors and artists who participated, but first a few images from the beautiful day:

Passers by may have noticed our own Scooby Neuter waving them over
to the terrace at the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park

The Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park was a beautiful setting, and many thanks again to our
wonderful hosts not only for use of their terrace, but for keeping us well
supplied in water, tea, yummy nibbles and mimosas!

We were thrilled to have special guest Hilton (poster dog of the Stay Hilton, Stay!
program at the Hilton Asheville Biltmore Park) spend some time with us on the terrace!

Many folks who attended also brought much appreciated donations of pet food,
that were gratefully received in barrels decorated by members of
Claxton Elementary Girl Scout Troops.

Attendees scooped up baggies filled with coupons from area businesses,
as well as the chance to win our Grand Prize and a hand made pet food bowl.

After picking out a beautiful, hand made pet food bowl, many
attendees made bids on some of our silent auction items.

Loved these fun pet beds by Asheville Area Professional Pet Sitter's Lauren Sage!!

It was great to see so many people bring their furry friends, and many of them enjoyed a free 'pawdicure' and cool doggie ice cream treat from The Hop while they visited!

a furry friend is being properly fawned over in mid-pawdicure on the right,
while others peruse the goodies available from Pet Harmony.

We had some hearty, artistic souls stop to decorate bowls for their own furry friends:

You may know her as the manager of Pet Harmony, or perhaps as BRRG member
She Wrex, but did you also know she paints?

Krista made a beautiful water bowl for her furry friend

Haley painted two bowls, one for sweet Buster who was at the event with her...

and one for another family furry friend!

Thanks again to everyone who helped make this event a success!!
