You’re invited!

Please join us, and 450 fellow philanthropists, for the 16th Annual HERO Awards- one of the most inspiring fundraising events in the Valley. This magical evening celebrates animal and human heroes alike, and captivates the crowd with stories of survival, companionship, and acts of heroism – all in the name of saving pets.

In the past 5 years alone, Hero supporters have raised $1,100,000, resulting in 17,000 life-saving spay and neuter surgeries. And now, with the addition of our Intervention program which keeps pets out of shelters and with the families who love them, funds raised will save even more dogs and cats.

With your help, the 16th year will be our best yet. We can’t celebrate the most heroic pets and save even more without you!

Stay tuned for further event details and ticket information coming soon.
