Join us hip and cool cats, and dogs, for the Humane Society of Boone County’s inaugural Fur Ball on Saturday, Feb. 22, beginning at 5:30 p.m. It will be a Mardi Gras celebration when The Cardinal Room, located at the Golf Club of Indiana, just west of Zionsville, is turned into the French Quarter. As you can see, we jumped the gun a bit and already have our Mardi Gras attire and are ready for the party to begin. Please help our good friends at the Humane Society of Boone County by attending this celebration. All proceeds will go toward the Humane Society’s building fund called “Operation Shelter.”
You see, the Boone County Humane Society has no facility to shelter needy animals and must rely on the kindness of members of the community to foster animals that the Humane Society takes in. Not having a facility obviously limits greatly the number of animals like us that they can help. Unlike many other charitable organizations, the Humane Society of Boone County receives no taxpayer funds and is a totally volunteer organization. Naturally, as Boone County grows, the need for the services provided by the Humane Society will also be growing.
Through the years, the Boone County Humane Society has helped more than 1,000 of our friends. It runs an adoption program called “Forever Homes,” which places more than 300 of our buddies each year in great homes. If your pet has ever run away from home, there is a good chance that whoever found your loved one called the Boone County Humane Society to help find the owner.
So if you care about animals like us, attend the Fur Ball to help support this great organization’s efforts to realize its dream of having a facility to house and care for animals that are a bit down on their luck, like us. Tickets are only $50 per person or $425 for a table of 10 or $375 for a table of eight.
Don’t worry about bringing your own beads — we will take care of that. Special thanks to JJ Kaplan (Color My World Studio) for taking these great photographs of us at her studio. We had a blast. Oh yeah, almost forgot (you know about us dogs’ attention spans), there will be a silent and live auction, and they are still accepting donations of auction items. The Zionsville Community Newsletter will be there taking pictures and maybe you’ll see yourself in next month’s magazine! See you there with beads on!
