Geauga Humane Society Rescue Village
“Mardi Paws”



More than 325 folks raised the woof — I mean roof — at Mardi Paws, the benefit for the Geauga Humane Society Rescue Village.
Jan Glasser and Tiffany Mushrush Mentzer were co-chairmen of the party held at The Bertram Inn, transformed into New Orleans’ Bourbon St. alive with magicians, a larger-than-life Parade the Circle puppet, casino gaming and visiting royalty. Shy of the crowd noise, Canine Queen Missy sought refuge with her owner Adrienne Trimpey, while Canine King Midge, enthroned on the arm of Geauga County Sheriff Dan McClelland, reveled in the attention. The small but mighty Deputy Midge, an eight-pound Rat Terrier/Chihuahua mix, is a certified narcotics dog.
Sipping libations from the Krewe of Barkus Bar, guests bid on the silent auction before heading to the Café du Mutt to feast on Creole-inspired main dishes and traditional King’s Cake and mini beignets. Entertainment by the Mo’Mojo Band featured authentic Zydeco music.
Rescue Village Executive Director Hope Brustein and WDOK’s Nancy Alden conducted a live auction for cage sponsorships for care of the homeless animals at the South Russell facility. Dogs, cats and farm animals have been abandoned by people either no longer able to afford their care or who have lost their own homes due to the economy. The event, said Tiffany, was expected to raise about $50,000. STORY AND PHOTOGRAPHS BY KATHRYN RIDDLE
