Paws for Love Foundation
Here at my Love
Creek cabin, the shelter
pets’ paintings are
spread out on my
framing table –
watercolors in soft
pastels, or thick and
vibrant layers of
color.all applied with
paws or tails.or the
occasional “roll in the
paint” technique!
As I frame them, I am
taken back to the time
when I met each
artist.gently stroking
their fur and learning
their stories. These
rescued pets have so
much to tell
much to teach us. From
a hopeful wag of a tail,
to an optimistic purr,
they teach us patience
and forgiveness...and
hope for their future
against all odds.
We are incredibly
proud to be celebrating
our 16th year of shelter
pets selling their own
art to help other shelter
None of it would be
possible without our
family of volunteers,
extraordinary donors,
and the support of
animal lovers in
Sonoma County and
Over the years, we
have watched our small
one-night art show
expand into a much
anticipated Valentine
destination. We hope
you will join us for our
“Sweet 16” Paws for
Love celebration!
Returning will be DJ and
Master of Ceremonies
Aaron Long, musician
Richard Bolmen, and
Tarot by Louise. Our
popular wine bar will be
sponsored by Mutt
Lynch, Iron Horse,
Pedroncelli, and
Kenwood Vineyards.
Ulrike Steinke will be
creating her masterful
and tempting appetizers,
passed throughout the
evening for your
pleasure by our
experienced volunteers.
Auction donations are
arriving daily as our
auction coordinators
Harry Leonard and
Alice Sleeth are
preparing the best silent
and live auctions we
have ever seen!
Returning will be some
favorites – Giants
tickets, the Jackson
Hole “Wild West”
vacation, romantic local
getaways, and a stellar
selection of Wine
donations, Dinners, and
Tasting Experiences.
Our cruise raffle will be
building anticipation
throughout the evening
until the moment the
winning ticket is drawn!
Every ticket sold will
benefit our successful
“Silver Paws for Love”
senior pet adoption
program, which is
largely funded by this
special raffle.
Meet some of the
artists, who will be on
hand to receive your
compliments – and
maybe a treat! And you
won’t want to miss our
red carpet parade of
“Silver Paws for Love”
dogs following the live
Last, but not least, our
gallery of captivating
paintings by shelter pets
will remain the “heart” of
our Valentine Gala!

It’s Your Night to be a STAR!
Lilly, Spayed Female, 9 years-old, Deaf
.a very special girl! She first came to
Have you been accused of having a flair for the
dramatic?...well, GOOD! We want you!
We are looking for a few outgoing, fun-loving raffle
sales people to sell tickets during the night of our
Gala. You will receive free admission to one of the
best charity events around! And every ticket sold
will go toward helping another senior pet move out
of the shelter and into a loving home.
Are you up to the task??? Just call Jeanine at

SNAP Cats in 2006 when she was rescued
from a bad situation. Lilly was found in an
abandoned home with many other animals.
Our vet found three BB pellets in her as well.
Lilly was soon adopted, but after 7 years her
parents had to surrender her, so now she is
looking for a new home. Lilly must be an
indoor cat, with her white fur and pink skin
she is susceptible to skin cancer from the
sun. She has two different colored eyes one green and one blue. And Lilly is deaf.
Because she wants to be heard and cannot
hear herself, she does have a loud voice. We
believe Lilly would like to be an only cat. She
was doing fine around our office, but is
currently showing some dominant cat signs.
Even so, Lilly is such a sweet, sweet girl and
just wants to be loved. If interested, please
