On Saturday, April 8, community friends came out in record numbers to show their support of the Fur Ball, a night combining revelry and animal rescue. The 2nd annual gala is the premier event hosted by Fun Raising 4 Animal Rescue with proceeds dedicated to three area animal organizations: Cat Tail Acres, Friends for Animals of Metro Detroit, and Michigan Animal Adoption Network. We look forward to breaking even more records in the future in order to impact the lives of even more four-legged friends in Southeast Michigan.
Attendees: More than 250 (double the attendance from 2016)!
Funds raised: Over $62,000 (a $25,000 increase from 2016)!
Special thanks to our sponsors & partners:
Tail wags to our evening emcee: Paul Gross, WDIV Local 4 Meteorologist
Meows of appreciation: To all of our dedicated volunteers, supporters, and donors

MAAN targets low-income communities by decreasing dog and cat homelessness and overpopulation through low-cost sterilization programs and other resources to families in need. MAAN also provides education on proper pet care to pet owners. Learn more.
Cat Tail Acres is a sanctuary for feral and unwanted cats. We are not a traditional shelter and do not accept socialized adult cats or kittens who are more adoptable. We believe all of God’s living and breathing creatures deserve a right to a good life. Learn more.
