JACKSON TOWNSHIP, Pa.-- It's an odd pairing, but it's proving to be very beneficial. Wine tasting was held at Elicker's Grove near Spring Grove in York County on Saturday to help a local animal rescue group.
Money raised at the event will help West York based Boro's Animal Response Krew, also known as BARK.
It's made up of a group of more than two dozen volunteers who respond to calls of pets lost, found, injured, abused or trapped.
"It funds to help people with vet bills and those kinds of things, but in the (West York) borough we respond to fire, police, accidents, anything that involves an animal we respond to. Any money we get goes towards vet bills to help people," says Shelley Metzler, who founded BARK in 2008.
Wine Tasting in the Park featured three area vintners, High Rock Winery of Hanover, Jackson Square Vineyard of Spring Grove and Buddy Boy Winery of Duncannon.
There was also food and live entertainment, and dogs were available for adoption as well.
BARK is hoping to make this an annual event.
