Many participating wineries will be offering discounts on bottles of wine in addition to food and pet-themed freebies, like “Barkcuterie” boxes filled with dog treats that Big White House Winery and John Evan Cellars are planning. to sell to benefit their partner organization, Tiny Paws Pug Rescue.
East Bay SPCA – which has locations in Dublin and Oakland – will be at Garré Vineyard & Winery with adoptable pets for people to meet. Although the organization does not conduct on-site adoptions at the event, those interested in adopting can schedule an appointment at one of their facilities, according to East Bay SPCA Events Manager Kayla Vucinich.
They will also provide information about their various programs, such as behavior training for current pet owners, youth camps and educational programs, Vucinich said.
“The event is more than just hanging out and drinking wine, there are things for your dog, if you’re interested in getting a dog and building a community,” Vucinich said.
Tickets for Wine & Wags are $30 in advance at LVwine.org and $35 at the event. Each ticket includes admission to participating wineries, a commemorative Livermore Valley Wine Country GoVino glass, at least two wine tastings at each winery and access to event activities, organizers said. Companion dogs must be kept on a leash at all times.
