2nd Annual Fur Ball Record-Breaking Results: Fur Ball Recap

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.
