The Humane Society of Livingston County is asking residents to go all-in to help support homeless animals in an upcoming benefit event.

The 17th Annual Fur Ball is coming to Crystal Gardens in Genoa Township, Saturday, April 14th. This year’s theme is Las Vegas Casino Night. There will be a strolling dinner, premium bar, live auctions, a DJ, and more. A silent auction will begin at 5:30pm, with gaming starting at 8:15. The Annual Fur Ball supports many of the Humane Society’s local programs. They receive no state or federal funding and survive on generosity of donors and sponsors throughout the year. Last year, the Humane Society of Livingston County cared for 900 neglected cats and dogs, and responded to another 1,000 requests for help from the community. Tickets for the event are $110 person, or $200 per couple until April 1st. After that, they increase to $125. Purchase tickets through the link below.

More information on the event and sponsorship opportunities can also be found at, or by calling Jeannine Julien at (517) 552-8050. (MK)
