The Humane Society of Chittenden County provided homes for 974 cats, dogs, and small mammals in 2018. To help support these efforts, the organization is hosting their fifth annual Purrrses for Paws event at the Burlington International Airport, Thursday, Feb. 7, from 6 to 8 p.m. The evening will consist of hors d’oeuvres, cocktails, and a raffle along with both a live and silent auction of new and like-new purses.

Donations of new and like-new purses, clutches, and handbags are being accepted for drop-off at HSCC, 142 Kindness Court, South Burlington. 

HSCC is a private and independent nonprofit organization serving both Chittenden and Grand Isle Counties. For information or to purchase an event ticket, visit
