AnimalSave’s annual “A Furry, Furry Night” fund raising event will be held at the Foothills Event Center on Saturday, Oct. 26. “A Furry, Furry Night” is dedicated to the dogs and cats we rescue and place in loving, forever homes.

Last year’s event was a howling success. Based on last year’s attendance and how much folks enjoyed it, we expect the event to be sold out, so get your tickets early.

Organized by the Friends of AnimalSave Committee, “A Furry, Furry Night” will include a live and silent auction, a no-host bar and hors d’oeuvres, a delicious dinner by Bella Catered Events and dessert.

We are pleased to have Gary Lorentzen as our Benefit Auctioneer and Master of Ceremonies again this year. Gary has been a professional auctioneer for over 30 years. He has earned the Benefit Auctioneer Specialist designation (BAS).

There will be a special treat as it is near Halloween. Holly Traffas, of Wayfinder Tarot, will provide readings for those interested in peering into the future. Proceeds from free-will donations will be given to AnimalSave.
