4th Annual Fur Ball Showers of Success: Fur Ball Recap

April brought welcome showers of success for the 4th annual Fur Ball Recap, the premier event hosted by Michigan Animal Welfare Foundation. On Saturday, April 27, a deluge of community friends came out to show their support of this gala 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 flurries of good fortune in the future in order to impact the lives of even more four-legged friends in Southeast Michigan. Together we’re changing the world four paws at a time!
