Canines, Cats & Cabernet Virtual Auction & Gala
Our furry friends hold a special place in our hearts, our laps, on our couch, and in our beds! But not all animals are as lucky as the ones with a forever home. Operation Kindness, the no-kill animal shelter in Carrollton, will host its 28th Annual Canines, Cats, and Cabernet online this year. It is the shelter’s largest fundraising event enabling them to help animals in need of lifesaving medical care, companionship, and, most of all, a forever home. You will party in place while supporting North Texas’s homeless pets and will be able to bid on the organization’s live and silent auction from the comfort of your home. Open up your hearts and donate what you can, so Operation Kindness will continue to provide lifesaving care to pets in need.
