Paws in Space: Live Long and Pawspurr

It’s almost time again for our annual Gala for Animals! This year, our event will be held virtually on Saturday, July 24th at 6:00 PM and is called Paws in Space. We think it will be out of this world!
We wanted to include a spotlight on one of our favorite parts of our annual gala: the Magnificent Beasts!
The Magnificent Beasts are art pieces that are created annually for our gala and become available for purchase in our Gala auction. The Beasts are wooden cutouts of dog and cat silhouettes and each cutout displays a unique design from a local artist. The artists have complete artistic freedom with the Beasts, and we eagerly await their creations each year. 
The Beasts represent a celebration of art (especially pet-themed!), local talent, and a way for our supporters to take home a one-of-a-kind gift while supporting our mission.
