The Inaugural Fur Ball will be held on Saturday, September 14, 2019, at the MeadowView Marriott Conference Resort & Convention Center. The Fur Ball is Petworks largest fundraising event of the year; a magical event like no other in East Tennessee!


Animal lovers, please join us for an evening that will include dinner, entertainment, and a live and silent auction, with items unmatched by other area fundraisers. Also, the first twenty lucky dogs to be registered will receive top-notch pampering at the “Ultimate Doggy Spa” while their ‘people’ enjoy the festivities. The twenty lucky dogs will then be featured in the "Pampered Pooch Parade" at the end of the evening.
