Hosted by magician and comedian Joel Ward with special guests Tricia Helfer and Garth Kemp, the evening supports the organization’s efforts to rescue homeless animals, care for them and help them find their “furrever” homes. This year’s honorees include LAAS New Hope Coordinator, Veronica Perry, and Volunteer of The Year, Aliye Ece.

Tickets are priced at $150 and include an open bar, appetizers, an elegant plant-based dinner and live entertainment. There will also be a silent auction, performances by Joel Ward and other fun surprises.

“Our ’Furball’s theme is year is ‘Saving lives through innovation and collaboration,’” said Kitten Rescue representative, Sandra Harrison. “The goal is raise funds for our newly launched transport program and kitten nursery.”

Last year’s event raised $68,000, and helped Kitten Rescue to renovate its Sanctuary (a no kill shelter where full-time staff and volunteers provide, love care and socialization for 150 cats at a time) as well as much needed medical care for rescued cats.

The festivities take place at 6 p.m., Sunday, October 4th at the Skirball Center’s Ahmanson Hall. Tickets may be purchased here.

Kitten Rescue is a non-profit, no kill, cat rescue organization based in Los Angeles, dedicated to the rescue, rehabilitation and placement of homeless animals since 1997.
