What We Do : Tuxes & Tails

Tuxes and Tails - May 10, 2014

The Seattle Humane Society’s 25th annual Tuxes & Tails gala raised $1.4M for the animals in Seattle Humane’s care on Saturday, May 10th.

Nearly 1,000 guests attended including local media and former Super Sonics Slick Watts and Gus Williams, who showed their support by walking the runway with Seattle Humane's adoptable shelter pets.

“We’re proud to host Tuxes & Tails – a spectacular event for a great cause,” said CEO David Loewe, “but we could not do it without our charitable sponsors, hundreds of supporters who procure and donate auction items, our dedicated staff and volunteers who ensure that the night goes off without a hitch, and our guests who give so generously to the animals.”

The special “Fund-A-Need” project was the highlight of the live auction and raised more than $570,000 for Seattle Humane to expand its Community Outreach Programs. These live-saving services provide critical pet food and vet services to thousands of pets belonging to low-income seniors, cancer patients and people disabled by HIV/AIDS. This Fund-A-Need ensures that thousands of people in our community will not be forced to give up their pets when they need them most.

If you couldn’t make it to Tuxes & Tails this year, it’s not too late to make a difference! You can still make a donation to the Seattle Humane Society or make a donation to the Fund-A-Need to expand our Community Outreach Programs.
