Wigglebutt Warriors Presents Wigglebutts Uncorked


We’re baaaaaaaaaaack!

The Wigglebutt Warriors® return for a command performance and an attempt to up the “bark” with a brand new gala filled with fun, dogs, celebrating, and most of all fundraising for dogs in need!!!!! And YOU are invited.

In 2013, Wigglebutt Warriors® hosted a “Wigglebutt Wedding.”

In 2014, we took a whole new direction under new leadership and hosted “Wigglebutts Go Hollywoof.”

Where Do We Go From Here?

Wigglebutt Warriors® proudly presents:

Where: Brotherhood Winery:  America’s Oldest Winery located in Washingtonville, New York. (just one hour from New York City and a mere 17 miles from Soon’s Orchards in New Hampton, NY)

Wigglebutts Uncorked takes place at The Grand Monarque Hall, or the Grand Salon as it has often been called. Join Wigglebutt Warriors for a night to remember in an early 19th century stone building with towering ceilings, hand crafted wooden floors, exposed wooden beams and ten foot round antique wrought iron chandeliers that all come together in a historic setting full of old world charm. The Grand Monarque Hall was built in 1860 and was actually where the wine was made before it was converted into an event space.


To date, Brotherhood has never hosted a pet-friendly gala on their premises, but they have welcomed Wigglebutt Warriors and guests for this very special event!!!! We are making history!

    It’s on my calendar, so now I’m going to figure out a way I can take part! There’s no way Poppy and I are missing a Carol and Darlene wigglebutt fundraiser!

  2. Dolly the Doxie says

    Mom is really going to try to come this time but it depends on a lot of stuff. If she does it will be with just me not Taffy since Taffy isn’t real friendly with other dogs (mom calls her the Killer Cocker). It’s kind of close to BlogPaws so it depends on where that will be next year too (Chicago?), but she would drive to NY for your event if she came. Love Dolly

  3. Robin says

    Wow! This looks like it will be quite the event. I hope that you are able to surpass your fundraising goals and help out some more homeless dogs 🙂 It seems like these events are just getting better every year.

  4. Groovy Goldendoodles says

    Wish I could make it – dogs and wine are my favorite combinations! Between BP and my daughters wedding my plate is full and my wallets empty! Have fun, and of course Harley, Jax and I will support, share and donate.

  5. Naomi Teeter says

    This looks and sounds like a wonderful event! To be honest, I only clicked on this blog post because it said “Wigglebutt”… and that’s what my husband calls our two chihuahuas… I thought he was the only one! 😉

  6. Shauna says

    Wow, wish I was closer. This would be so much fun. What a fabulous event, I have never been to one like it. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Lorane says

    This seems like a great Event. the Tickets are a bit pricey but if I was in this area I would definitely put that aside and purchase it for a good cause.

  8. Tiaras & Tantrums says

    This sounds like the place for families with fur-babies to travel to! I am sure it will be a huge success – I know so many families who have rescue pets.

  9. Rosey says

    That does sound like fun. Love the look of it too, and the history that it was where the wine was made before it turned into an event place.

  10. katrina g says

    this looks like an awesome event. i love helping animals. all mine are rescues from shelters.

  11. Jessica Harlow says
