What started as Tux and Tails has grown to a 700+ seat gala dinner which has been voted one of the three best galas in Spokane! This fun, yet meaningful swanky night begins with a cocktail hour, followed by a three-course sit-down dinner, live and silent auctions, our signature Christmas trees and live music! Wear your finest to this formal event – and enjoy an evening of festive fun in support of our furry, four-legged friends. $150 tickets are now on sale. Every donation goes directly to supporting our vision at Spokane Humane Society, enriching the lives of our animals and their companions through Support, Education, Advocacy and Love (SEAL).

A table seats 10 people and guests must be 21 years of age. Dinner choices are either a chef’s choice meat entrée or a vegetarian dinner, red or white wine, with dessert.

The Spokane Humane Society’s Board of Directors requests the absence of your presence at our non-event.  This event will never take place and you do not have to go anywhere or do anything.  The animals still need your help, but not in person… This year, we present Faux FurrBall 2020 – Stay home for the animals of the Spokane Humane Society. 

Please make a donation to the Spokane Humane Society for what you would normally spend. You will be helping the animals while keeping fellow lovers of the furrkids safe… and we are still keeping the tradition of  the commemorative FurrBall wine glasses alive. Click the button below to find out ways to help.

Make October 17th a Dog-Day in and spend the day with your best friend. While COVID is preventing us from holding our regular Parade of Paws, we hope that you will still spend some quality time with your pooch and raise funds for the Spokane Humane Society. We’ll share special cocktail recipes for you, and recipes for dog treats for them. Of course you can walk your own Parade of Paws solo or with a group of dog friends. Whatever you do, we’d love to see your pictures on Facebook and Instagram #2020paradeofpause.

So FETCH a group of friends, SHAKE them DOWN until they ROLL OVER and make a donation to the Spokane Humane Society.
