The 2014 Silent and Live Auctions are filled with unique and exciting experiences with broad appeal. Of special interest is a Marc Chagall signed 1956 lithograph courtesy of Weinstein Gallery. Again, there will be a 2015 Westminster Dog Show package and the cover of the next Bark & Whine Ball Invitation.

A very heartfelt thanks goes out to everyone who participated in the success of this year’s Bark & Whine Ball. We had a fantastic turnout, helping raise awareness and money for The Cinderella Fund of the San Francisco SPCA, which pays for the cost of top notch medical care by SF SPCA veterinarians for the most critically ill and injured dogs and cats in the shelter.

If you weren’t able to make it to The Ball this year, you can still participate with a tax deductible donation of any size through our secure donation site:

Bark & Whine Ball Benefits
The Cinderella Fund of SF SPCA

The Bark & Whine Ball is CLAW’s single largest fundraising event for the crucial work of the SF SPCA’s Cinderella Fund, which pays for the cost of top notch medical care by SF SPCA veterinarians for the most critically ill and injured dogs and cats in the shelter. Once restored to health, these animals are placed into the loving homes they deserve by the adoption staff.

Why Your Participation Matters

Animals like Fred and Ginger, two 9-year-old Chihuahuas, were helped by the generous support of donors to the Cinderella Fund. These two best buddies came to the SF SPCA with a variety of medical issues. Fred had abnormal liver enzyme levels and a partially atrophied jaw. Ginger had hypothyroidism and severe dental issues.

The SF SPCA was able to care for them both by providing medication or treatment for all of their medical needs. Once they were feeling better, Fred and Ginger were back to their normal selves. Fred is an outgoing little guy who will always be the first to greet you; Ginger is a bit more shy, but she adores chin rubs and romps in the park.

Please help us support The Cinderella Fund by attending the Bark & Whine Ball on March 13, 2014. Click here to purchase tickets online.
