Voted Best Charity Event for Seven Consecutive Years!

Fuzzy Friends Rescue’s Barkin’ Ball is the reigning winner of Waco’s Best Charity Event.” The Ball is our capital fundraiser, generating 50% of the annual funding required to save hundreds of Waco’s abandoned dogs and cats and support our various outreach programs. Since 2000, Barkin’ Ball has attracted sell-out crowds celebrating the New Year in the best of taste. After all, helping our four-legged friends will always be in style.

Thank You! To all the Companies and Individuals that Helped Make the 2011 Barkin’ Ball a Success!
