Chance Shelter will play host to its third annual Furry Festival, the premier adoption event of the year from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, Nov. 20, at Surprise Toyota, 13543 N. Auto Show Ave., Surprise.
The furry fashion show includes prizes of up to $250 for best dressed, ugly sweater, most like owner. The event also features a 50/50 raffle, silent auction, kid’s craft room, food, vendors and a Santa room.
Register online at www.chanceshelter.org. Many rescues will be present for potential adoption.
The nonprofit, founded in 2015 by Audra Colson to meet the needs of animals, their owners and the community of Surprise (and surrounding communities), has never had an actual building dedicated to serving their clients. Instead, volunteers, in their own homes, care for the animals in need.
While it can and has worked in these emergency cases, a state-of-the-art facility is what the organization — and the community — truly needs. The land has already been donated in Northwest Surprise and now the funds are being raised to make the $3.5 million dream a reality.
