Doggy do-goodersLove puppies, kitties, and a buncha badass grown-up music? Sweet. Then we have the event for you. We’re talking about the Humane Society Benefit Concert Featuring Wells & van Tyn, which features a ton of story-telling artists from genres like folk to Celtic music, and everything else under the word-smithing sun. It’s a musical good time, and there’s a benefit: All the money raised will go to the La Plata County Humane Society, and those cute furry creatures they take care of (that you should adopt).
Details: Sept. 21, Humane Society Benefit Concert, 6:30 p.m., $15, La Plata Humane Society, 1111 South Camino del Rio, lpchumanesociety.org

Howlin’ wolfThere are wolves in Durango – well, Ignacio, to be exact – and those wolves need your help. We’re talking about the howlin’ puppies over at Wolfwood Refuge, the rescue that takes in wolves and wolf dogs that have been abused or abandoned. Those puppies aren’t free to feed, or house, or take care of, so you should help them, and the folks running Wolfwood, out by hangin’ out at the Wolfwood 7th Annual Art and Silent Auction. You can jam out to music by Lacey Black and get yo’ drink and bid on, all for a good cause.
Details: Sept. 22, Wolfwood 7th Annual Art and Silent Auction, 5 p.m., $25, Durango Silverton Railroad Station GRANGE, 479 Main Ave, wolfwoodrefuge.org
