Valley Humane Society has forged a partnership with Darcie Kent Vineyards to benefit local dogs and cats through the sale of Dog Day Cabernet, which is newly available at eight Northern California Costco warehouses.

One of the winery’s six Give Back Wines, the sale of each bottle of Dog Day Cabernet contributes $5 to the lifesaving and life-enriching programs of Valley Humane Society. The distinctive red label featuring Darcie's faithful beloved Shepherd, Brunello, and the Valley Humane Society logo make it easy to spot “the bottle that benefits.”

Dog Day Cabernet was created when Valley Humane Society helped a mother cat and two kittens Darcie found in the vineyard. “I was so impressed with their programs, how they serve the community and our animal friends that I wanted to do something that could help in a big way.” The winery has donated $5 of every bottle of Dog Day Cabernet sold for the last three vintages.

Proceeds from the wine sales have a great impact on Valley Humane Society’s ability to serve animals and members of the community. The organization relies on private donations from individuals and businesses to fund programs and services. “People often assume a connection between the national groups and their smaller humane societies, but in fact Valley Humane Society is supported exclusively by our local community,” said Executive Director Melanie Sadek.

Costco stores in Livermore, Danville, Concord, Fremont, Tracy, Manteca, Almaden, and Santa Clara are now carrying the playful cabernet sauvignon for enjoyment by pet lovers and wine lovers alike!
