Sip For Senior Dogs IV

Oct 3, 2023 | Blog, Events

I am writing to you on behalf of House with a Heart Senior Pet Sanctuary to request your support for the “Sip for Senior Dogs IV” event to raise money for our Medical Fund. The event will be held on Sunday, October 15th, 2023 from 6-9pm at the Olney Winery in Ashton, MD.  Online tickets in advance:

We hope that you will join us in supporting our cause by donating items for our Silent Auction for our Sip for Senior Dogs event. Here is the link to our Wish List for this event: Sips For Seniors Amazon Wish List

In return for your donation, we would like to offer recognition through any promotional material we hand out. Please contact Lori @ for more information and a donation form.

House with a Heart is home to 17 senior and special needs dogs, 1 senior cat, 2 foster kitties and 4 forever fosters. The Sanctuary was created in 2006 by Sher Polvinale and her late husband Joe. Sanctuary residents are dogs and cats who have lost their families and homes through no fault of their own. Because of their advanced age and various medical conditions, they have little chance of being adopted. Once a dog became a resident, it would have a loving home for life.

We are having this event to raise money for our overwhelming medical costs in 2023.  We rescued Bella and her two sons in early February:  Next came a rescue all the way from California, little Jules. Hershey, our little 4 lb chihuahua followed next. Each have their own special medical challenges and we are only able to help them with your support!

On behalf of our senior and special needs dogs, thank you very much for your consideration of our request. Please feel free to contact me at if I can be of assistance.
