Cheyenne's Black Dog Animal Rescue hosted the 5th annual Bark and Wine fundraiser Friday, October 9th at the Cheyenne Depot Museum.

The event included a dinner, live music, and silent auction. Proceeds were donated to BDAR.

We want to thank the community and the amazing sponsors for making Bark and Wine such a success, Despite having run out of food and drinks due to the overwhelming boost in attendance this year, the feedback we received has been extremely positive and reflective of the generous commitment of our community to the mission of BDAR.” - Britney Wallesch, Executive Director of BDAR

The 5th annual gala was the largest attended thus far, and helped Black Dog Animal Rescue top their fundraising goal of $20,000.

The funds will help many programs including: the Mod Squad Behavior Program, Clyde’s Fund, which provides medical care for homeless animals, Low-cost Microchips, the Empty Dish Pet Food Pantry and Positive Alternatives to Shelter Surrender (PASS) Program. The staff and volunteers will be able to train, foster, feed and provide medical care that is needed for so many of the animals.

In the last 7 years, Black Dog Animal Rescue has helped nearly 2,000 shelter dogs across Wyoming.
