Join us for our 11th Anniversary Paws & Pearls!

Saturday, April 18, 2020 at The Grove at Williamson Place

This is an event not to be missed!  We have a lot of fun lined up for our 11th Anniversary Paws & Pearls.  The evening kicks off with the Whine Time, featuring hors d’oeuvres from local restaurants, caterers, and music featuring Gay and Larry Pinkerton.  Dinner will be provided by Goodness Gracious Cafe and Catering followed by live Auction with Keith Strain of Parks Auction along with friends from Maples Realty & Auction.  We top the event off dancing the night away to music by the Pilots.

We have sponsor levels that allow everyone to get involved.  Please visit our sponsor page for sponsor level details.  This year’s top two sponsor levels include an invitation to our Patrons’ Party at the home of Jo Atwood and Mike Tobitt.

Monies raised from Paws & Pearls support the various programs of the Beesley Animal Foundation.  These programs promote the prevention of unwanted cats and dogs through their affordable spay and neuter clinic, educational programs that stress the importance of responsible pet care through events and school visits in Rutherford and Cannon Counties, aid to families needing financial assistance with spaying and neutering their cat or dog at the Beesley Animal Clinic, and an outreach program to support the cats and dogs of the underserved through the community.

On behalf of the Paws & Pearls committee, we want to express how much we appreciate your support.   Your efforts help benefit the Beesley Animal Foundation and our community.  If you would like information, please contact Amanda Oliver at or by calling 615-217-1030.  We hope to see you on April 18th at The Grove at Williamson Place.
