    This annual wine-tasting event is back! If you’re looking for a unique Valentine’s date, a fine new wine to savor, or even just a fun and interesting activity, Paws and Pours is the way to go! Come and meet some of our adoptable animals while enjoying some light snacks (while they last). 

    Can’t arrive at 3:00 or stay until 6:00? No worries–this 3-hour window allows you to come in whenever it’s convenient for you! (For large groups or wine clubs, please contact Ellen at ellen@bottlemixx.com for more details.)

    Enjoyed the wines from the tasting? Then be sure to take some home! The featured wines will be discounted all day. You’ll receive 10% off single bottles, 15% off 6 or more bottles, and 20% off 12 or more bottles! BottleMixx also has 16 Wines by the Glass to enjoy, and for the non-wine drinkers, they have 10 craft beers on tap.

    BottleMixx, a Platinum Paw sponsor, is co-owned by Ellen (who serves on our Board of Directors) and Bruce McKim. Since opening the bottle shop in 2012, by donating and matching all tips, they have contributed almost $60,000 to animal rescue efforts.
