VHS Hidden Gardens of the Valley Tour Will Benefit Homeless Animals

The event features a self-guided tour that will take participants to 10 unique and outstanding gardens at private homes in Pleasanton. The tour provides an excellent opportunity to gain ideas and inspirations for garden designs, fountains, flower and shrub combinations, decks, patios, gazebos, outdoor kitchens — and more.

Non-refundable tickets are $35 each and can be purchased online at and at Valley Humane Society, 3670 Nevada Street, Pleasanton. Cash, checks, MasterCard and Visa are accepted at VHS. Tickets are also available at Alden Lane Nursery, 981 Alden Lane, Livermore; Armstrong Garden Center, 7360 San Ramon Road, Dublin; and the following Pleasanton locations: Murphy’s Paw, 410 Main Street; Towne Center Books, 555 Main Street; The Wine Steward, 641 Main Street; and Western Garden Nursery, 2756 Vineyard Avenue.

Pet Food Express Dog Wash Fundraiser

Throughout the whole month of January, Pet Food Express hosted a ‘Pet Bath’ Fundraiser. Anybody who visited the Pleasanton store anytime in January and purchased tokens for a dog bath, all of the proceeds went directly to Valley Humane Society. The tokens could be used at anytime, not just January, which was the best part! Pet Food Express is located on 1737 Santa Rita Road in Pleasanton.

After taking time to tally up all of the monetary donations, the event raised $7,950.
