Tickets are now on sale for the Allen County SPCA’s signature fundraising event, Growl at the Moon. The event will take place on Friday, October 20, 2017 at 6:00pm at the Grand Wayne Convention Center in downtown Fort Wayne.

This casual, one-of-a-kind evening features food, drink, live and silent auctions, and a chance for some of the event’s 400+ guests to sing their hearts out in a lively karaoke competition.

Last year, the event raised nearly $50,000 and helped the Allen County SPCA to place over 2,600 cats and dogs in forever homes, provide assistance to more than 300 pet owners experiencing financial hardship, and temporarily house over 25 animals whose owners suffered health or housing crises.

Proceeds from the event will support the Allen County SPCA’s work in saving the lives of homeless animals in our community.

Individual tickets are $125 and include event admission, 2 drink tickets, and a station-style meal. Full tables and corporate sponsorship opportunities are also available.

To purchase tickets or get more information, visit www.growlatthemoon.org.

The Allen County SPCA, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, has been providing shelter to northeast Indiana’s homeless cats and dogs for over 60 years. Our mission is to promote the prevention of cruelty to animals by providing a safe haven for animals, an effective and comprehensive adoption program, education and outreach programs for the community and deep and broad membership and volunteer programs.
