THANK YOU TO OUR SUPPORTERS AND OUR DONORS!
2018 GALA & AUCTION raised over $91,000!!!
Our attendees had a fabulous time. We sold lots of auction items. We raised lots of dollars for the puppies and the kitties at the shelter. Best part, we raised the funds needed for the Fund-a-need to be able to put an electronic sign by our shelter building to promote the adoptions, advertise our events, and let the community know where we are.
