Hardy Animal Nutrition, a Magnus International Group company, is proud to be a lead sponsor of The Great Catsby & Barkeasy Gala, a new event for the benefit of the animals of Rescue Village.

The fundraiser starts at 6:00 p.m. on Saturday, June 9th at ThornCreek Winery and Gardens, located at 155 Treat Road, Aurora, OH 44202. This is Rescue Village’s largest fundraiser of the year. They hope to surpass the success of last year’s Tails at Twilight event, which raised over $100,000.

Those attending will enjoy a 1920s theme, live music by Red Light Roxy, a wine pull, authentic jazz-age cars, a silent auction, raffles, refreshments, and more!

Geauga Humane Society’s Rescue Village supported a total of 2,295 adoptions in 2017. They rescued 1,025 dogs that came from 10 shelters located as nearby as Cleveland and as far away as Puerto Rico. Their Barn Program rescued over 145 animals, ranging from horses to ducks. With the help of 516 volunteers that put in 55,496 hours in 2017, these animals were placed in permanent homes. The Great Catsby & Barkeasy Gala will help support the efforts of such volunteers to ensure animals find loving homes.
