Wine, shopping and dogs – the Wine & Wags event hosted by Karma Bath and Body Co. and Good Karma Pet Rescue has it all.
held on Wednesday, June 15, from 6 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., the event allows guests to meet pets available for adoption and learn how to get involved in volunteering or fostering.
A live raffle featuring products and certificates from local Coral Springs businesses includes gift cards for Board Yum Charcuterie, Let’s Chill Ice Cream, Casa Decor & More and Trendy Creations.
Free sips and snacks are available as customers browse the stalls with products dedicated to the needs of pets. Vendors include Pet Wants, Paint Jo Face, Tweety’s Sweet Treats and James Joe Makes.
Karma Bath and Body Co. owner Alexandra Giordano said the event was the first of its kind, but the store and the rescue would like to make it a must.
“We have always rescued and adopted pets. There was a time when we had so many animals that our neighbors called us “the petting zoo,” she says. “So many animals are mistreated, unloved, thrown into shelters and rescues for various reasons. We feel when we adopt; you are giving that pet hope and a chance for a new life.
Giordano added that Wine & Wags’ goal is to help the community learn more about adopting and promoting pets and volunteer opportunities.
“We hope to raise awareness for the rescue while raising funds to help cover the cost of food and medical care for the animals,” she said.
Good Karma Pet Rescue is a network of foster homes in South Florida dedicated to providing dogs, cats and other pets in need with the love and care they deserve. As of 2020, it also operates an adoption center in Pompano Beach. 100% of the proceeds from the event will be donated to Good Karma Pet Rescue.
Karma Bath and Body Co. is located at 11471 W. Sample Rd, Suite 2.
