By From page A3 | June 22, 2014

Local residents are invited to join Rotts of Friends Animal Rescue on Saturday, June 28, from 5:30 to 10 p.m. for an evening of entertainment, great food, live and silent auctions and canine companions.

The fourth annual Mutts & Martinis will take place at a new location this year — The Hotel Woodland, 436 Main St. in Woodland. Guests will meet some of the rescue dogs needing homes as well as happy owners with their new family members. They’ll see a live K9 demonstration and have the opportunity to bid on a number of unusual auction items.

Cocktails will begin at 5:30 p.m., followed by a silent auction and live entertainment. Dinner will be served at 7 p.m., with the live auction to follow.

The auction features a Hearts on Fire 2-carat diamond ring donated by Fred MacMurray’s daughter, Kate; a 26-carat aquamarine and diamond ring; a two-night stay at a Squaw Valley condominium; two nights at Harvey’s Lake Tahoe plus two tickets to see Journey in concert; a private, behind-the-scenes tour for 10 at the San Francisco Zoo; four grand reserve tickets to A Taste of Sonoma and a magnum of wine; four floor tickets to a Sacramento Kings game; three front-row tickets behind the plate to a San Francisco Giants game; one ton of alfalfa, delivered; a foursome of golf at the Yocha Dehe Golf Club at Cache Creek Casino Resort; an AKC registered Rottweiler or German shepherd puppy plus lifetime obedience training from the Yolo Canine Academy; and vintage jewelry.

All proceeds go to Rotts of Friends’ Animal Rescue and the completion of the new dog sanctuary. Tickets are $100 per person and may be purchased online at RottsofFriends.com or by calling Renee at 530-681-1326.

Rotts of Friends is a nonprofit organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and finding forever homes for abused and neglected dogs and other animals. Rotts of Friends, a no-kill sanctuary, has found forever homes for more than 1,200 dogs since 2009.
