“Wining for the Dog Days of Summer,” hosted and sponsored by In Good Company, donated 50% of proceeds from bottles of “beneficial” wine bought during May and June to Pope Memorial Humane Society.

“Covid would’ve been so much worse without the love of our four-legged friends, the ability to get outside, and a glass of wine, said In Good Company chef and owner Melody Wolfertz, in a Pope Memorial news release.

The money raised by In Good Company will be used to provide, food, shelter, and medical care to the 250+ animals currently in the care of Pope Memorial Humane Society.

“Pope Memorial Humane Society would like to thank In Good Company for their generosity and the community for supporting local restaurants during the time of Covid-19,” said the release. “In Good Company is now open by reservation and Pope Memorial Humane Society highly recommends giving Melody and her a team a call. When you visit, make sure to thank them for their generosity and for giving back to the animals in the care of PMHS. Together we are making a difference in the lives of local homeless pets in need.”
