Wags & Whiskers Gala 2023 - Let your love SHINE!

Saturday, April 29, 2023 • 5:00 PM - 9:00 PM CDT

$20.00 - $750.00

Event Details

The 8th annual Wags & Whiskers Gala will be held on April 29, 2023, at Hemingbough in St. Francisville, with proceeds benefiting the West Feliciana Animal Humane Society (WFAHS).

We have not been able to host this vital annual event since the onset of the COVID pandemic in 2020. During this period, not only have many of our family and friends suffered greatly, but the unforgotten animal family members (our furry friends) have been challenged and need care. Overcrowding and financial conditions have strained WFAHS animal shelter operations.  Many families had to surrender beloved pets, not only due to family illness, but also due to inflation causing increased costs of veterinary care, food expenses, and general care.

Our shelter is overwhelmed with requests to accept pet surrenders and receive abandoned dogs and cats rescued by parish residents. As a result, WFAHS has been busting at the seams rescuing these beautiful creatures and providing care and protection for them until they are adopted. Animals who are found are the lucky ones, for they have a second chance at finding a loving Forever-Home through WFAHS.

Our sincere thanks go out to all those loving parish residents who have stood by us over these last years, providing support in the form of donations, foster homes and other special requests.

However, in order to continue fulfilling West Feliciana Parish's animal shelter needs while maintaining our high standards of care for our animals, this year’s greatest need is financial assistance.
