Kibble & Bids is all new and exciting this year!

We are headed to the Pavilion at Haggin Oaks. It’s a beautiful venue in Sacramento with tented and tree-shaded lawns, gorgeous greens, ample seating – and the dogs, of course! Irresistible deals are waiting in our Silent and Live Auctions, Raffle, and a Wine Wall – each featuring wines from a host of wineries from near and far along with an outstanding selection of other must haves! Try your luck in the Putting Contest and don’t miss the Parade of Goldens! Topping off the evening, a special presentation by Jody Jones, our devoted President.

Our theme: Golden Journeys. We can’t wait to share the stories (and faces) of some of our most memorable rescue tails.

Our Golden Greeters will be waiting with wagging tails and sloppy kisses to thank you for the support you offer to the hundreds of dogs rescued and placed in loving homes each year.

Event Itinerary

3-4PM: An exclusive Sponsor Reception overlooking the greens with a selection of wines, beers, catered appetizers. Sponsors enjoy one-on-one time with our Golden Greeters, live music and preferred seating in the Pavilion.

4PM: All guests are welcomed by our Golden Greeters for a hearty menu of catered appetizers, wine tasting, with beer, non-alcoholic beverages and water as well. Meet old and new friends as you vie for deals in our silent auction, premium raffle, and wine wall surprise offerings. Test your skills in our putting contest. And, marvel at the stories of our Golden Greeters.

6PM: Join us in the tent for dessert as our memorable program gets underway with a Parade of Goldens. We’ll share highlights of our rescue mission and touching tails of Golden Journeys. It’s all made possible by you so raise you paddles high in our live auction with new and exciting offerings!

Support Our Special Project

Artificial Turf for Water-logged Winter Dog Yards!  Our low-lying play yards fill with water and muck in the winter that quickly turns Goldens a muddy brown. It’s unhealthy to drink for our thirsty friends and adopters don’t much enjoy it either! With your help, we will upgrade as many yards as possible with the same durable and professionally installed artificial turf that now covers our Senior Yard, Sugar Shack Acres, where it has passed our winter tests with flying colors! It’s a big undertaking – one that will definitely need your support!
