Wine & Whiskers
May 5, 2023
Wine & Whiskers Fundraiser


The 9th annual Wine & Whiskers was held at Trailside Event Center in Peoria Heights on Friday, May 5, 2023 from 5-8 pm.  This year's fun included wine tastings from Old Mill Vineyard, Olio & Vino, and Mackinaw Valley Vineyard, hors d' oeuvres, silent auction, live music from Patio Daddios, wine pull, wheel barrel of fun raffle, and a visit from adoptable feline friends.  


We raised over 20,000 for the animals in our community! The generousity of our supporters allows us to continue the important work of promoting kind treatment of animals, feeding hungry dogs and cats, funding lifesaving treatment for suffering animals, enriching the lives of shelter dogs and cats through volunteers, helping provide low cost spay/neuter surgery, and much more. 


Thank you to everyone who attended this important fundraiser!  If you weren't able to be there in person, you can make a difference in the lives of animals by mailing a donation to Peoria Humane Society, 2600 NE Perry, Peoria, IL 61603 or clicking on the donate button our our home page.




History of Wine & Whiskers


Our first annual Wine & Whiskers event was a great success.  It was held at the Contemporary Art Center on February 24, 2015.  We raised close to $15,000 for the animals and had so much fun, we decided to make this an annual event.  Wine & Whiskers continues to be a great opportunity to learn more about the important work the Peoria Humane Society does to improve the lives of animals and people in the Peoria area.
