Fur Ball

Richmond’s Signature Event for People and Their Pets | The Jefferson Hotel

Our annual Fur Ball is Richmond’s only black-tie event for people and their pets.

The one-of-a-kind evening is the Richmond SPCA’s largest annual fundraiser. All proceeds raised help sick, injured and neonatal homeless animals.

Money raised through the Fur Ball supports our Cinderella Fund, the pool of resources that helps to cover the cost of the medical treatment and rehabilitation of the thousands of dogs, cats, kittens and puppies we take into our care each year. More than 80% of the pets who enter our shelter depend on the lifesaving Cinderella Fund for crucial care before we adopt them into loving, lasting homes.
