C.A.R.E.4Paws and Old Yeller Ranch Rescue will cohost the 3rd annual Pups & Purrs FUNdraiser on Sunday, May 21, at Fess Parker Winery in Los Olivos to raise money and support for Santa Barbara County animals in need. The event—tagged the “pawty” of the year!

“This is a key event for both of our organizations as it raises critical funding for the important work we do in Santa Barbara County. Our nonprofits keep evolving ever year to help more animals and pet owners in need, and we are grateful for the community’s support,” said Amanda Parker, cofounder of Old Yeller Ranch Rescue.

The event takes place from 4 p.m. to  9 p.m. and features food from Full of Life Flatbread, wine from Fess Parker Winery and live music with Richard T. Diaz & Friends. Live and silent auctions give guests a chance to bid on a great variety of packages, including luxury travel and lodging, exclusive wine collections, high-end spa treatments and exquisite art most items donated by local businesses and individuals supporting the cause.

Regular tickets are $50 through May 20 and $60 at the door. There’s also a separate, outdoor VIP Lounge, where Fess Parker’s President, Eli Parker, and head winemaker, Blair Fox, will pour wine. In addition to private wine tasting, VIP guests enjoy a private dining area and reserved Live Auction seating. VIP tickets are $150 or $250 at the door.
Santa Barbara County’ C.A.R.E.4Paws (short for community awareness, responsibility, and education) works to reduce pet overpopulation, keep animals out of shelters and improve quality of life for pets and pet owners in need. Old Yeller Ranch Rescue’s mission is to end canine homelessness by providing education and a safety net of services.
