Annual Events

Bark and Wine

Bark and Wine is the largest annual fundraiser for Black Dog Animal Rescue.  Tickets to this event will get you access to a beautiful evening, and a fantastic dinner. Enjoy live music and browse a large silent auction. Meet adoptable animals and visit with BDAR volunteers, staff, and Board members. Celebrate your love for shelter pets!

Anyone who supports Black Dog Animal Rescue’s life-saving work is invited to attend. Bring your friends and family too! This is not a formal, black-tie event. Dress code is more along the lines of business casual. This event takes place in October.
