Animal lovers from far and near gathered at the Wine Dog for the 4th Annual Toast for the Paws to benefit the Humane Society of Bay County. The Toast included a wine and craft beer tasting and a silent auction. All the proceeds collected from the benefit will go to help the animals. "It goes into all that has to do with taking care of the animals be it the vaccinations be it the shots any kind of medicine they need because we do get them from animal control and they're not normally in the best condition," Marketing Director for the Humane Society of Bay County, Sean Brosnan said. To volunteer or adopt an animal from the Humane Society visit AdoptMe.org or visit The Humane Society of Bay County on Facebook and Twitter.
