For more than 80 years, the Humane Society Silicon Valley (HSSV) has worked diligently to “enhance the human-animal bond” through its education, services and outreach. On April 23, the HSSV will hold its annual “Fur Ball,” a black-tie event at the Menlo Circus Club in Atherton. Last year’s Fur Ball raised $970,000 for
animals in need, and the HSSV hopes to eclipse that amount this year.
The theme of this year’s Fur Ball is “A Hero in All of Us – Great power. Great responsibility. Great love.”
“So often we are heroes to our animals because of our commitment to their well-being,” the HSSV stated in a release. “In return, they are our heroes because of their unconditional love and affection. It’s a powerful combination, and with the profound generosity of The Fur Ball’s patrons we are able to extend that experience of mutual rescue to animals that face seemingly insurmountable challenges.”
Along with offering animal adoptions, the HSSV provides an array of services, including training, vaccinations, microchipping, and spay and neuter services. For nearly 100 years now, the HSSV has demonstrated its own enviable heroism in constantly and consistently helping animals in need. You can help, too.
