About Tropical Tails

This event is our largest fundraiser of the year and supports our mission to build a compassionate community through the care of companion animals. The evening will consist of dinner, silent auction, live auctions, entertainment and of course some of our furry friends will make a guest appearance!

Dinner will be served in the style of action stations with a tropical flare. Participate in fun games like the Golden Ticket Raffle and the Palm Tree Lotto to help raise funds to care for the 3,000 animals Tails cares for each year.
