While I like to visit the Humane Society for Hamilton County, I can't help but feel a little sad for the animals in their cages.

Coonhounds are howling, terriers are barking and cats are meowing, all wanting your attention in hopes that you will take them home.

If you take a look at the shelter's website, you'll find nearly 40 adoptable dogs and 60 adoptable cats. More animals are being surrendered or dropped off every day.

Tonight, the shelter will benefit from the annual "Wine, Wags & Whiskers" fundraiser.

If you haven't attended, it's a gala worth considering. While you can taste dozens of fine wines, sample yummy hors d'oeuvres and bid on more than 100 silent auction items, animal lovers can also meet and mingle with some of the Noblesville shelter's adoptable four-legged pets.

This year's canine guests of honor will be Pooh, a 6-year-old female brindle; Ike, a 3-year-old male Pit Bull terrier mix; Bentley, a 13-year-old male Schnauzer mix; and DeLana, a 12-year-old female Shepherd mix. Guest felines will be Clea, a 10-year-old black and white female; Tinki, a 10-year-old black and brown tiger-striped female; Tai, a 7-year-old black and white male; and Tobias, a 16-year-old orange male.

Portraits of Pooh and Clea are pictured on wine bottles available at the fundraiser.

These animals are part of the shelter's Survivor Program, which benefits from the fundraiser and provides medical, life-saving care for shelter animals that came there in distress. Pets in the program may have been hit by cars, have heartworm or other disease, chronic illnesses or have been abused or neglected. These animals are never turned away because the county's Humane Society is a no-kill shelter with open admission.

The fundraiser is at 6 p.m. today with wine tasting until 8:30 p.m. and a silent auction ending at 9 p.m. at the Renaissance in Carmel.

Noblesville's John Gilmore, along with Gary Wasson and Kelli Ray Yates, make up a folk trio called Noble Roots, who will perform at tonight's gala. They play blues, bluegrass, folk and country, mostly old classics, like Johnny Cash, Merle Haggard and Tom T. Hall.

Tickets are $65 in advance or $75 at the door. VIP tickets are $85 in advance or $95 at the door, with guaranteed seating, keepsake wine glass and complimentary glass of wine.

This year's goal is to raise $50,000.
