12th Annual Fur Ball and Yappy Hour

*Thank you to Valerie Boydo for the wonderful poster this year!

The Whitman County Humane Society (WCHS) is pleased to announce that the 12th Annual Fur Ball & Yappy Hour!

This year we are calling all Superheros -- Show Off Your Super Paw'ers!  Mayor Glenn Johnson will emcee this action-packed evening, which will feature the beloved Parade of Pets, a delicious catered dinner, and fun silent and live auctions.  

This year we are honored to welcome our special guests, Jill and Matt McCluskey.  They will be sharing some special words about Lauren and the new cat building expansion, The Lauren McCluskey Cat Wing being named in her honor.  We will also have a video showing the progress of the new building over the past few months!

Our community's non-profit, no-kill animal shelter, Animal Haven, continues to care for over 400 homeless animals each year until they can be placed in their forever homes.  Please help us continue this important work.  With your generous support for the annual Fur Ball fundraiser, we hope to raise approximately 25% of WCHS’s annual operating costs and to raise funds for our new building addition!

Options for your support include:

  • Purchasing tickets for the event.
  • Becoming an event sponsor.
  • Contributing an item to our live or silent auctions.
  • Making a donation in honor of Fur Ball for the animals at the shelter.
