Saturday's activities were emceed by ABC36's Christine Winter.
The event
included dinner, auctions, and live music.
Amy Thomas says that while it was fun, it was all about saving animals: "Because we are a 401 3 nonprofit organization, we rely solely on fundraising efforts. This event alone brings in about 40% of our operating budget. So in order for us to do what we do, this is a huge part of how we're able to have such great success in finding animals forever homes."
