PAWS holds Dinner by the Bite

“We are still in need of furnishing our surgery center to perform our spay and neutering and provide the medical care our animals will need at this new facility,” Hilburn said.

PAWS Shelter of Central Texas held its 16th Annual Dinner by the Bite on Thursday, March 7 at Wilson Appliance. 

At this annual fundraiser, attendees ate food prepared on-site by various local restaurants, participated in a silent auction, and sampled various wines, beers, and spirits from local vendors. All money raised will support PAWS Shelter of Central Texas, a 501(c)3 charity.

“What a huge night it was for PAWS,” PAWS Executive Director Melody Hilburn said. “A huge thanks to all the vendors and chef's that came out to support PAWS. Epicure, Tiny Pies, Thyme and Dough, Winner-Winner and Jobell all served amazing food and the crowd was buzzing with compliments to all chef's. Great craft cocktails were provided by Dripping Springs Distilling. Fabulous wines by AWI and Richards Rainwater.”

Hilburn also praised Wilson Appliance for hosting the event. “For the 16th year The Wilson Family provided their amazing kitchens from Genaire, Thermador/Bosch, Sub-zero/Wolf, Miele, GE.  Wilson's has been an active supporter of PAWS Shelter for years and we could not do this wonderful event without their support. We extend our thanks to the entire staff at Wilson's that make this event possible,” Hilburn said.

PAWS is currently in the process of moving to Dripping Springs. The new PAWS Dripping Springs Hill Country Campus, located at 2965 RR 165, is scheduled to open in mid-April.  “We are still in need of furnishing our surgery center to perform our spay and neutering and provide the medical care our animals will need at this new facility,” Hilburn said. “ We are currently soliciting contributions for the surgery center. People can help us by donating to this effort at www.pawsshelter.org. or by calling the shelter at 512-268-1611. This surgery center will be critical in the success of moving Hays County to No Kill. We ask that people consider being part of the process by donating to this very worthy cause.”

PAWS is also currently in need of volunteers. Interested persons can visit https://pawsshelter.org/volunteer/. Interested persons can also apply for open positions at the new location at https://pawsshelter.org/about-paws/faqs/job-openings/.
