Michele Abbott-Croan

This year's event is dedicated to the memory of dedicated SPCA Board Member, Volunteer and Animal Advocate Michele Abbott-Croan. Michele co-chaired Wine & Whiskers for many years. She never liked the spotlight but worked tirelessly behind the scenes making Wine & Whiskers the SPCA's most successful annual fundraiser. Michele loved animals and people. She truly is a guardian angel of the SPCA of Hancock County.
