Fur Ball Gala & Auction

Friday-October 23, 2020
Modern Living Building at State Fair Park

The Fur Ball is Yakima Humane's Annual Dinner, Auction, & Party is the most important fundraiser of the year and is presented this year by title sponsor Mariano Morales Law.



This special evening supports the mission of the Yakima Humane Society to save the lives of our community's homeless pets. The community's most compassionate animal lovers and advocates come together for the evening to enjoy fine dining, incredible local wines, bid on fabulous auction items and dance the night away. Last year's sold out event prompted this year's venue - the Modern Living Building at the State Fair Park.

In addition to all the fun, with your support you help save more lives. Proceeds from the Fur Ball Gala provide food, shelter, and medical treatment for the animals in our care. Your support also supports important community engagement programs which provide resources and support about the importance of spaying or neutering pets, responsible pet ownership, and kind treatment of our fuzzy friends.
