2020 was a year with many challenges, and countless people found it difficult to provide for themselves and their families. Because the Peoria Humane Society believes that pets are part of the family, we understand that when people are struggling, so are their pets. Now more than ever, we are committed to providing food and medical care for animals in need.

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 a lot of money for the animals and had a great time doing it!   We are excited to make this an annual event.  The 2015 Wine and Whiskers featured cocktails, hors d'ouevres, live entertainment, beer and wine, a silent auction, and a wine raffle.  The event raised almost $15,000 to help the animals in our area. Wine & Whiskers is 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 while enjoying the company of friends in a pleasant atmosphere.


Proceeds raised will be used to fund the PHS programs which help the shelter animals, provide pet food and medical care to pets in need,  fund low-cost spay/neuter services to the community, and educate our children about compassion and respect.  Help us help the animals by making a donation to our Wine & Whiskers fundraiser.
