Howling at the Moon

9th Annual Fall Benefit
Animal Welfare Alliance

Friday, Nov. 3, 2017

$30 per person in advance

$35 per person at the Door


Howling at the Moon is AWA's primary fall fund raising event, held the first Friday of every November. The evening will include a Full dinner by Maya’s, Free beverages, Silent Auction and Live Music.

This year's party -- the 9th annual -- will benefit AWA's programs and contribute to the organization's shelter construction fund. 

AWA spends up to $2,000 a month on programs. With the cooperation of  Poplar Bluff's Animal Control officers, AWA helps provide vaccinations for puppies and kittens in the city's facility.  We also provide financial aid for qualifying pet owners to help with spay/neuter costs.

Since its first full year of operation in 2009, AWA has spent more than $53,000 to help spay/neuter area dogs and cats!

Half of all net income from "Howling at the Moon" goes toward eventual construction of a large no-kill animal shelter on the seven acres AWA owns just north of Poplar Bluff's city limits.
