As we clean up the wrapping paper, party hats and leftover birthday cake, we would like to take a moment to thank you for making Black Tie & Tails – the biggest 75th birthday bash ever – a wonderful success!

On Friday and Saturday night, we partied with hundreds of friends (new and old!) as we celebrated the thousands upon thousands of lives who have been rescued, healed and loved over the past three-quarters of a century at Animal Friends. Our guests rubbed elbows with the real party animals – our homeless dogs, cats and rabbits – as they prowled the dance floor, indulged in divine dining experiences and hopped their way through fabulous auction packages.

We were honored to pay tribute to Debbie and Jimmy Campbell, longtime supporters of Animal Friends as this year's Honorary Chairs. And, we took a look back at Animal Friends' rich history – from our humble beginnings to some of our proudest recent accomplishments.

Best of all, we raised hundreds of thousands of dollars in support of our lifesaving mission and vision. We want to extend a heartfelt thank you to our sponsors, guests, volunteers and staff who made our 21st annual Black Tie & Tails such a success.

We simply can't wait to see what the next 75 years has in store for Animal Friends ... after all, good things only get better with age!


Please, enjoy these photos from Black Tie & Tails, the biggest 75th birthday bash ever.
