The Dogwood & Cattails Ball

Once Upon a Time

The Dogwood Cattail Ball is scheduled for March 24, 2018.  You and your furry family member(s) are invited to attend a fun evening of dining, dancing and fellowship, all while supporting a worthwhile cause.  One highlight of the evening is The Vera Wag Fashion Show for the furbabies, a perfect chance for your fashionista to strut their stuff on the cat walk.  Doesn't this sound like an exciting evening, but don't worry that it will be to much for your fur baby,  we will have the VIP (Very Important Pet) room availalbe for some quiet time staffed by loving volunteers.

What to Expect

Wondering what to wear?  This is a Black Tie Creative event.  What's that mean, anything goes, short dresses, long dress and of course costumes fitting the theme are always fun.  Just plan on being there and having a fabulous time to support a great cause.  

The formal evening starts at 7:00 p.m. with a welcome from our very entertaing emcees and the four course dinner being served, but you will want to arrive early (6:00 p.m.) for Yappy Hour and take advantage of our signature themed welcome drink.  


Are you a shopper?  Do you have a bit of competitiveness?  Sounds like an auction would be just what you are looking for...  How about two auctions, silent and live.  Retailers, restaurants and individuals all step up and donate some fantastic items for our auctions.  There are a wide variety of items in the silent auction and some real "Wows" in the live auction.  Come ready to bid. 


One of the serious notes of the evening comes when we honor indiviudals, both two legged and four legged, for going above and beyond in their support of our organization, the community and the welfare of others.  You will want to be present to see who is honored with The Outstanding Animal Award and the Pam Roe Humane Hero Award.

Happily Ever After

End this funfilled evening dancing the night away with your friends to music provided by DJ Michael Hawkins.  And leave this event knowing that you had a part in giving an animal a happily ever after.
