Save the Date: The SPCA of Texas Announces Fur Ball 2020 Gala Going Virtual
One-of-a-Kind Event Will Be the Bark of the Town

(DALLAS, TX); July 1, 2020 -  The SPCA of Texas is thrilled to announce that Fur Ball 2020 will be held on Saturday, September 19 at 6:30 p.m. And this year, the SPCA of Texas’ gala is going virtual for the first time due to COVID-19 with a program that is sure to inspire and uplift the spirits. The one-of-a-kind virtual experience will feature mission-focused stories, entertainment and gratitude, all with a focus of raising important funds for the SPCA of Texas in support of our critical work in our community through live and silent auctions packed with fabulous items, the always-exciting Pony Up for Paws and more. Please stay tuned to www.FurBallDallas.com for details about this reimagined event.

Fur Ball is DFW’s salute to the bond between people and their pets and a celebration of the SPCA of Texas’ important mission to provide every animal with exceptional care and a loving home. All money raised through Fur Ball 2020 will go directly to the SPCA of Texas to help rescue, heal and find homes for thousands of animals and help keep pets in homes, out of shelters and off the streets. During this difficult time, more than ever, the SPCA of Texas depends on its patrons’ generosity to continue to provide these essential services to our community’s most vulnerable pets and their people.

Fur Ball 2020 is sure to be the bark of the town thanks to Chair Patricia Villareal, Co-Chair Steve Atkinson, Auction Chair Amber Camper and Auction Co-Chair Rebecca Marabito. The Emcee for the evening is Brian Curtis, NBC 5 News Anchor, and the auctioneer is nationally acclaimed auctioneer Grant Snyder.

SPCA of Texas Voices

"I'm absolutely in LOVE with Kitty (formerly Kaleigh). I know her name isn't original at all but I just started calling her that until I could think of a name and it just stuck - it's so her! I've attached two photos - she's seriously the most beautiful kitty in the world! She loves to steal tennis balls and bones from her dog sister - she thinks she's a dog! She enjoys going for walks and car rides, snuggling with mom, bird watching, drinking from the sink, playing with her pipe cleaners and getting into mom's makeup in the mornings. I couldn't 'imagine life without her. She's the absolute best!"
