What is the Fur Ball?

The Fur Ball is a black tie (optional) event that celebrates the life-saving work of Johnson County Animal Shelter and Pet Elves Rescue. It includes a strolling cocktail reception, a sumptuous multiple-course dinner, live music, dancing, and memorable silent auction. 

Why should YOU be

a Fur Ball Sponsor?

Your business will have a unique opportunity to establish and strengthen brand and public awareness. With over 50% of Americans being pet owners, your partnership will be meaningful to many of your clients and they’ll appreciate your commitment to a cause they care about. Never doubt that animal-lovers are an extremely loyal group! You can feel confident in your donation; the beneficiaries we have chosen rate high for sheltering practices, fiscal management, accountability, and transparency. You’ll receive a tax deduction for your donation. (as allowed by law)

Think about this...


What would you do if 1600 animals in need showed up at your door? Some were lost, some were abandoned, others neglected or abused? Could you turn them away?

That’s the challenge that Johnson County Animal Shelter and Pet Elves Rescue faces every year.


No matter the age or condition in which the animal arrives, they take them in and work tirelessly to give them a second chance at a happy life. All of the animals that arrive at the shelter will receive medical care, a warm bed and food to fill their bellies, mental health support, and loving attention by the dedicated staff. 


This year we are holding a black tie (optional) event, our Johnson County Fur Ball, to benefit the Johnson County Animal Shelter and Pet Elves Rescue. These animal caregivers rely on the kindness and generosity of Johnson County residents and businesses to support their mission to provide every animal exceptional care.

The 2020 Johnson County Annual Fur Ball will be held on Saturday, February 15th, 2020 at the beautiful Sycamore at Mallow Run. The evening will include live entertainment, cocktail hour, silent auction, dinner and dancing.
We hope you will consider partnering with us as a sponsor or silent auction donor on this very special evening. Together we can continue to make a difference in the lives of thousands of helpless animals.

On behalf of the 2020 Johnson County Fur Ball Committee, we thank you in advance for helping us make the future bright for animals that need us.
