Fur Ball General Square

Our annual Fur Ball is a chance to gather our community in celebration of another year of life saving. This year, we have a month-long campaign to raise funds for the refuge, increase awareness around our mission, and bring our community together on a safe, virtual platform.

Spring is a time of growth and new beginnings and just like a garden, our animals need nourishment and care for them to bloom and grow. Plant the seeds of change by joining us in this springtime celebration of Morris Animal Refuge and the community that makes our work possible!
