The Dog Ball has been the shelter’s largest fundraiser for the past 30 years. Since that very first Dog Ball, the event has evolved to include corporate sponsorship opportunities, a silent and live auction, a Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show ticket raffle, the showcase of 50 Very Important Dogs (VIDs), and the presentation of shelter dogs that are available for adoption. Tickets sales for the Dog Ball regularly exceed 800 guests, bringing in close to $100,000 each year to care and find homes for abused, abandoned, and neglected animals in North Alabama. If you are interested in becoming a sponsor for the 2020 Dog Ball, please email Anne Caldwell at
