Fur Ball – A Prom for Paws
Presented by Pet Pilgrimage, the Fur Ball is a Prom for Paws where people and their pets can come together for the “purrfect” cause – to raise money for local pet advocacy groups!
With dinner, dancing and a lot of tail wagging this one of a kind whimsical event appeals to pet lovers of all kinds. At the first annual event in 2017, over 40 dogs, a friendly pig named Matilda, a baby alligator named Snap, a charming snake and a pretty little newt were in attendance. Whether you choose to bring your pet or come unleashed, the Fur Ball will always be a “tail” to remember!
Prior to the event, people who make a reservation can enter their pets in an online Pet Superlative Photo Contest. The winners are announced at the Fur Ball and the Prom King and Queen are chosen by the most votes overall. View the 2017 Winners!
Pet Pilgrimage’s mission for this annual event is to raise money for, and awareness about the many pet advocacy groups in our area. These organizations are valuable resources for pet lovers; and always in need of support to continue their efforts.
The first annual Fur Ball benefited Catering To Cats & Dogs (www.c2cnd.org). Catering To Cats & Dogs is run entirely by volunteers. Their efforts are focused on rescuing, caring for, nurturing and fostering animals that are in desperate need of loving homes.
To continue the mission of the Fur Ball, every year Pet Pilgrimage will choose a different pet advocacy group as the beneficiary, thus bringing new awareness and support to the many groups in need. The Fur Ball is a chance to give pets in search of forever homes an opportunity they may never have had.
