On behalf of Charlie the Rescued Great Dane and all the animals,
thank you for a successful FurBall!
Our FurBall 2014 raised $155,000 for the animals at the OHS! Thank you to all of the attendees and sponsors for making the 10th anniversary of our gala event a success!
More than 300 FurBall attendees got to see their support in action Saturday night when Charlie the rescued Great Dane showed off his new fuller frame after doubling his weight in the care of the Ottawa Humane Society.
Charlie, who was surrendered to the OHS near death in January weighing just 53 lbs, was one of the highlight appearances at the tenth anniversary black-tie affair that featured performances by opera star Wallis Giunta and the Arthur Murray Dancers, as well as a parade of OHS volunteer animals.
The event also launched Project Orphan Kitten, a program aimed at saving 750 of the most vulnerable, motherless kittens the shelter will care for this year. It was kicked off just in time for kitten season.
"This money goes to help animals like Charlie and the orphaned kittens. We are just so pleased that the community came through for the animals, once again, at the FurBall," said Bruce Roney, OHS executive director. "We couldn’t help the animals without our community."
