FUR BALL 2020

A Night at the Oscars

- SAVE THE DATE -
SATURDAY, NOVEMBER 7, 2020 | 6PM
 Location: Your Place!

The 18th Annual Fur Ball is going virtual this year and what an event it is going to be! 

You and your entourage are invited to celebrate the GREATEST animals of the southwest from the comfort of your own home! Gather your friends, dress up in your Academy Award winning best costumes (pets too!) and get your ticket for access to the new activities and traditional ones you’ve come to love.

As a Network Partner of Best Friends Animal Society (Utah), Watermelon Mountain Ranch’s lifesaving efforts reach far beyond Albuquerque’s city limits. Our Mercy Missions take us all over the southwest United States rescuing dogs and cats that have unfortunately landed at death’s door. 

 

The Fur Ball funds many of these missions for the year, so please join us in support of our life-saving mission to save them all.

- The BIGGEST and BEST ONLINE AUCTION in Fur Ball history (over 200 items!)

- A Night at the Oscars SWAG BAG
(full of party favors & gifts for you and your pet)
