5th Annual Fur Ball Showers of Success: Fur Ball Recap

After two postponements over two years, the 5th annual Fur Ball was a HUGE success!  This premier event, hosted by Michigan Animal Welfare Foundation,  boasted a sell-out crowd!  Community friends came out to this gala for an evening that celebrates the life-saving work of animal welfare organizations. Proceeds benefit the following three nonprofits: Cat Tail Acres, Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit, and Michigan Animal Adoption Network. We look forward to the good works these funds will afford to impact the lives of even more four-legged friends in Southeast Michigan. Together we’re changing the world — four paws at a time!
