Alaqua Animal Refuge and Black Dog Cellars come together for the dogs

"Then, when we get a request for a suitable companion for special companions such as the Pets For Patriots, the person will come to the shelter and meet the dogs that are eligible and hopefully they will bond with one. If they do, the dog will then go back into training so they can meet the particular need," explained Hood.

Haney is the owner of two black dogs that he rescued and used their likeness on his wine labels.

"I have two passions in life — wine and dogs — so, I decided to put them together," he said. 

Haney is passionate and enthusiastic about supporting local community non-profit organizations whose mission is dedicated to enhancing the lives of dogs and pets.

As part of its Community Mission Programs in each city/state that Black Dog Cellars are distributed and sold in, a percentage of annual sales of Black Dog Cellars wines and merchandise goes to assist its Community Mission Partners and other nonprofit charity organizations. Black Dog Cellars sponsors fundraising events, auctions, festivals, and dinners, and donates wine.

When he does a special event, Haney has now pledged to donate all proceeds to Alaqua.

"We can't thank them enough for their generosity," said Hood.
