LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Dogs and cats got a little extra help Saturday evening at Almost Home Humane Society’s annual Fur Ball.

Attendees were able to partake in silent auctions, donate to the humane society and visit some of the dogs and cats up for adoption. Saturday’s event began at 7 p.m. at the Lahr Atrium.

Over the past year, Almost Home Humane Society has helped over 1,400 pets find homes.

Executive director Stacy Rogers highlighted the impact this event has on the shelter.

“It’s of huge importance,” Rogers said. “It shows people what we do. We try to bring in some animals, we show of what we accomplished in the last year. It’s great for raising awareness about what we are doing at the shelter and also helps us fund our operations.”

All proceeds from the event went to benefit the Almost Home Humane Society, which provides multiple programs to the community such as the Spay-Neuter Assistance Program, microchipping and the Injured Animal Fund.
