Fallston, MD (April 26, 2016) – All 470 tickets are sold for the largest party of the year for Harford County’s homeless animals, but there are still plenty of ways you can participate and support the animals at the shelter!

Local businesses and animal lovers across the region are strongly encouraged to show their love for the animals and donate gift cards, jewelry, artwork, professional services, tickets to area attractions, and much more for the evening’s popular silent auction. Monetary donations are accepted as well. Donations are tax-deductible and net proceeds from the evening benefit an average of 4,500 animals that enter the shelter each year.
