Humane Society Fur Ball to be held Saturday

The Shelby Humane Society will hold its 10th annual Fur Ball Saturday, April 20, from 5-9 p.m. at the Nazarene Community Fellowship Hall, Fourth and North Will streets, Shelbyville.

The Fur Ball is the Society’s main fundraiser of the year. Proceeds will go toward building expenses, such as utilities and maintenance, as well as for the expenses of the animal care.

“This is our main fundraiser. What we raise from it, helps to carry us through the year,” said president Crystal Reynolds.

Although the Society continues to receive donations and membership pledges, the group continues to need help in meeting its monthly expenses. During the past year nearly 30 dogs and 15 cats have been adopted out. The building houses another half dozen dogs and cats who are cared for by volunteers.

The Fur Ball will feature a dinner served from 5 to 6:30 p.m. The menu includes baked ham, fried chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, green beans, drinks and assorted homemade deserts.

A silent auction of a variety of donated items will be held from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Kerry Campbell will provide D.J. services from 6 to 9 p.m.

Admission tickets for the Fur Ball are $12.50 for adults, $5.50 for children ages 4-12. Admission for children 3 and under is free.

For more information about the Fur Ball or to adopt a pet, call (217) 774-DOGS and leave a message or (217) 820-1226, email shelbyhumane@consolidated.net., or contact any of the following Shelby Humane Society board members: President Crystal Reynolds, Vice President Susan Tuchek, Secretary Janet Crowley, Sue McElroy, Philip Reynolds, Tori Nacke, and Alena Whatley.
