Cleveland Animal Protective League Hosts Fur Ball Fundraiser

By jim Published: June 27, 2009

The Cleveland Animal Protective League is hosting its annual gala fundraiser, the Fur Ball “Cold Noses, Warm Hearts”, on Saturday, October 3, at the InterContinental Hotel Cleveland. Hosted by Q104’s Rebecca Wilde, the Fur Ball’s proceeds will benefit the APL’s Second Chance Fund. The goal of the Second Chance Fund is to provide veterinary care for wonderful animals who are looking for another chance, a chance not only to survive, but also to heal and start a new, healthy life with a loving family.

Fur Ball 2009 will include silent and live auctions, dinner, and a heartwarming video presentation featuring stories of animals who have benefitted from the Cleveland APL’s Second Chance Fund. Some of the auction items include a “Lunch With” series featuring local celebrities and the opportunity to have your pet photographed to be on the cover of the 2011 Cleveland APL calendar.

The evening’s festivities begin at 6 pm. Individual tickets will be available for purchase later this summer. Corporate and private tables for 10 will also be available. For more information on the Cleveland Animal Protective League or Fur Ball 2009, please call 216.771.8823, or visit

Funded by donations, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is Northeast Ohio’s largest humane society and the nonprofit organization empowered to enforce State and local animal protection laws in Cuyahoga County. Every year thousands of homeless and abused animals arrive at the Cleveland Animal Protective League. No animal is turned away regardless of their age, health or behavior.

Located in the Tremont District, the Cleveland Animal Protective League is the largest nonprofit humane society in Northeast Ohio and relies solely on donations to investigate and prosecute animal cruelty and to provide shelter and care for nearly 9,000 homeless animals a year.
