3rd Annual Wags and Whiskers: The Great Catsby

Saturday, October 12, 2019

We hope that you will join Friends of Strays in making our 3rd annual Wags and Whiskers Gala a huge success! This year’s theme, The Great Catsby, will feature old-Hollywood glam dress and décor with entertainment by local swing band Lounge Cat. Heavy hors d'oeuvres, including a roast beef carving station and pasta bar will be catered by Amici's and attendees will have access to an open bar. The evening will be emceed by News Channel 8’s very own Meredyth Censullo and will feature a program highlighting our life-saving work at the shelter.

Wags and Whiskers is our largest fundraiser of the year and is vital to our organization. This year's gala will provide much-needed support for the Friends of Strays medical fund. Each year, we administer veterinary care to over 1,000 animals, providing them with spay/neuter surgeries, vaccinations, microchip implants, and any injury/illness treatment that may arise during their temporary time with us. We spend upwards of $80,000 annually on medical care for our cats and dogs and Wags & Whiskers is critical in our ability to do so.
