ROCKLAND, Maine — On Monday, Nov. 18, Loyal Biscuit Co. and Trackside Station teamed together to host their sixth “Pints for Paws” fundraiser to benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County.
The evening far exceeded expectations and raised more money than any previous Pints for Paws events. In just three short hours on a Monday night, more than 200 people came through the doors, enjoyed dinner, purchased raffle tickets, participated in the silent auction and, like the name says, enjoyed 270 pints of beer to benefit the shelter. We are excited to say that we raised $2,880.
The support we received from the community was outstanding with more than 100 items donated for the raffle and silent auction. We would like to thank the following for helping us to have an amazingly successful night: Paddy Mills, Jen Chapman, Fletcher Hall, Fidelis Biscuit Co., Midcoast Laser Works, Laugh Loud, Smile Big, Maine Boatyard Dog, Stephanie Williams Personal Training, The Animal House, Jarod Bray, Jeff’s Marine, Coppola Salon & Day Spa, Courier Publications, Pet Food Experts, Stella & Chewy’s, Knight Marine, Rock City Coffee, Natural Balance Pet Food, Cloudstar (the Buddy Biscuit People!), Tipsy Nip Organic Cat Nip Products, Honest Kitchen, Limerock Inn, Rock Harbor Brewing, Maritime Energy, Farnsworth Art Museum, Grasshopper Shop, Eastern Tire, Author Jen Blood, Wag-It, J.
