Humane Society welcomes Meows & Martinis | PICTURES

CLARKSVILLE, TN (NOW CLARKSVILLE) – The Humane Society of Clarksville-Montgomery County held its Meows and Martinis fundraiser on Friday, as nearly 180 supporters and animal lovers filled Old Glory Distilling Co.

The event benefited the Cats MEOW, Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR) program, which is an all-volunteer, 100% privately funded program of The Humane Society. The program is dedicated to reducing the suffering and overpopulation of feral cats in the community.

Since the TNR program began in 2019, the Humane Society’s low-cost spaying clinic has repaired, vaccinated, and provided medical care to nearly 2,000 homeless cats living in Clarksville-Montgomery County.

The program prevents the birth of thousands of cats and costs the Humane Society an average of $14,000 per year. Fundraising events like Meows and Martinis, and community support, are essential to the success and continuation of the program.

Meows and Martinis was a sold-out event that included dinner, music with DJ and singer-songwriter Elya Vasiliev, a silent auction, door prizes and adoptable kittens from local rescue partners. The event has spanned nearly three years, having been first scheduled in 2020, then again in 2021, and canceled both times due to COVID-19 concerns.
