PAWS Chicago Fur Ball

Walk the red carpet to give homeless animals a chance at life.

One would think that once a stray dog or cat enters an animal shelter, it would be safe and well taken cared for, which would lead to it being adopted into a loving home. Unfortunately, that isn’t the case. Worldwide, 56% of dogs and 71% of cats admitted in animal shelters are euthanized. Every year, around 920,000 shelter animals, mostly healthy and adoptable, are euthanized. Why? Because sadly, adoptions don’t happen quickly and it’s costly and hard to manage a shelter overflowing with animals. Enter PAWS Chicago, an organization whose mission is threefold – “build No Kill communities, end the overpopulation of homeless animals, and transform animal welfare through a sustainable, solutions-based model.”

On November 17, PAWS Chicago will be having PAWS Chicago Fur Ball, a red carpet affair for pet owners and pets alike. This is a fundraising event for the organization’s different programs such as spay and neuter, adoption events, and mobile vet clinics.

The PAWS Chicago Fur Ball is Chicago’s premier pet-friendly black-tie event! Set at the legendary Drake Hotel, this unique gala invites guests to dress their pets in four-legged formal wear and walk the red carpet for an exciting celebration to benefit PAWS Chicago. Guests will delight in the silent and live auctions with one-of-a-kind items, raffle, dancing, and dinner buffets. Lucky dogs in attendance will also be treated to an evening of indulgences – including a divine dinner served in crystal goblets at the special dog buffet, and can enjoy pawdicures, massages, and delightful pet-friendly spritzes in the Dog Spa.

There’s a book quote that goes, “Every stray deserves a chance at love, a home and a warm bed to sleep at night.” Purchase your tickets here now and give a homeless dog or cat a chance to live a long and full life.
