I always have so much fun at this event! This year the peninsula spca can hardly wait to take you to Paris!

Enjoy an evening of cocktails, fine dining, dancing to your favorite tunes, and spectacular silent and live auctions, all in support of the Peninsula’s many homeless animals.

And, of course, the Fur Ball gala is truly unique because you can bring your pet! 

Pet guests will get the royal treatment when they join the much anticipated Pet Parade through Paris!  Canine friends will receive pet pampering at its finest, complete with our pet parade (the night’s main attraction!), pup-friendly passed hors d’oeuvres, and access to the special “Mutt-ini Bar!”

Since their transition to a “no-kill” shelter, they have been able to devote more time and resources to finding forever homes for the animals in their care, and to providing educational opportunities for the residents of the Peninsula.

They have expanded their humane education offerings, and completed their first full year of operating their new walk-in Veterinary Clinic for preventative healthcare. Their organization’s operations receive no public funding, and they are counting on you, the leaders and businesses of the community, to partner with them to keep the benefit of an adoption-guarantee shelter alive for our citizens and our pets.

To help raise funds, guests may participate in the Fur Ball’s live and silent auctions and raffle. In the past, contributors have won prizes such as a vacation to Africa, a trip to Disney World, and a Bahamas escape.

If you wish to give to the event auction, please contact Megan Steele, PSPCA Marketing and Special Events Manager, at 757-595-1399 ext: 109.

This year we are striving to exceed $150,000 to support the Peninsula SPCA’s Adoption Guarantee Shelter and Humane Education Center.  

Sponsorship packages range from $500 to $50,000
