San Francisco Prepares for Bark and Whine Ball

If you’ll be in San Francisco in mid-March, check out the 2012 Bark and Whine Ball to benefit the San Francisco SPCA. Now in its 16th year, this even helps fund the San Francisco SPCA’s Cinderella Fund which helps pay for the medical needs of the most severely affected animals under the care of the SF SPCA.

Tickets are now on sale for the event which is presented by Critter Lovers at Work (CLAW), an all-volunteer support group of the San Francisco SPCA. The 2012 Bark & Whine Ball will take place Thursday, March 22, 2012, at 6:30 p.m. at the Fort Mason Center, Festival Pavilion in San Francisco.

“Dress yourself and your furry friend in your finest and join us for a fairy tale evening,” invites Dr. Jennifer Scarlett, co-president of the SF SPCA. “Your contributions will help homeless animals in need of urgent and extraordinary medical care get the treatment they need.”

All members of the public are encouraged to attend with their well-behaved “best friends.” Last year’s Bark & Whine Ball drew more than 500 guests and 200 dogs, and this year the SF SPCA expects a record turnout. All proceeds from the Bark & Whine Ball benefit the SF SPCA’s Cinderella Fund,
