UN-LEASHED: Animal Wonderland

August 2, 2019 @ 6:30 pm - 11:00 pm



Now in its eighth year, un-leashed, formerly PAWS for the Cause, has quickly grown into one of Nantucket’s most anticipated events of the summer. This year’s theme, “Animal Wonderland,” will take guests on an extraordinary journey, while raising funds for homeless animals, humane education, and the many outreach and advocacy programs of Nantucket Island Safe Harbor for Animals (NiSHA).

Join NiSHA, our honorees, The Bishop Family, and our Co-Chairs Peter Niemitz & Paul Gaucher and Clare & Ansley Walker in a whimsical atmosphere shared by 350 guests and their four-legged friends. The event will feature an un-leashed Reception with “Muttini’s,” a “Pawlor” lounge for our adoptable four-legged friends, entertainment, a gourmet dinner by Nantucket Catering Company, a live auction, and a dessert reception that includes cupcakes for humans and canines alike and (of course) NiSHA’s animal ambassadors!
