This Fancy Party For Dogs Raised $700,000 To Help Animals In Need



This past weekend in Washington, D.C., was the 30th Annual Bark Ball, a fundraiser to help animals in need. What sets this gala apart is that dogs were both welcomed and encouraged to attend, and like their human friends, they got fancy.

Throughout the evening dogs could be seen in ties, dresses, and fine plastic jewelry.

All the dogs who attended were good boys and girls (yes, yes, they were) including these guys who were really hungry, but knew it was improper to eat before everyone has been served.


In addition to all of DC’s most powerful dogs coming out for the evening, some famous humans showed up, including former Senators Bob and Elizabeth Dole.

By the end of the evening, more than $700,000 had been raised for the Humane Rescue Alliance. In a Facebook post, the group said that the money will “protect animals, support families, and advocate for positive change to create a world where all animals can thrive.”

Thank you to everyone who made tonight’s 30th Annual Bark Ball an incredible success and helped us raise more than $700,000! Your generosity makes possible the Humane Rescue Alliance’s ability to deliver on our ongoing mission to protect animals, support families, and advocate for positive change to create a world where all animals can thrive.
