This is all thanks to supporters like you-- and events like the Fur Ball Gala. After postponing our gala due to the COVID-19 pandemic two years in a row, we are thrilled to be able to celebrate with you once again!

The Fur Ball Gala will be held on Saturday, June 11, 2022. Guests will enjoy an elegant night full of celebration, and ticket price includes appetizers, drink tickets, silent and live auctions, dinner and dessert, puppy meet-and-greet, and live entertainment. All proceeds go to Safe Hands Rescue.


Our goal is to raise funds for The Safe House, our Kentucky rescue property that was opened in June of 2021. Nestled right in the heart of our partner communities, The Safe House is a critical part of our mission to save as many lives as possible. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a massive negative effect on animal welfare nationwide... and rural Appalachia has been hit even harder due to the lack of animal welfare resources even before the pandemic began. To date, The Safe House has saved the lives of over 500 dogs and cats in desperate need, and the demand for life-saving care is continuing to grow.
