Ahoy, Matey! Join Young at Heart for a fun-filled evening that ensures Young at Heart can continue its mission to rescue and find loving homes for senior pets in need. This enchanting night embraces the hidden treasure that senior dogs and cats can be, and ye'r sure to have an incredible time at our 2018 Silver Paws Gala! This very special night is the most important fundraiser of the year for Young at Heart. While you enjoy an evening of pirate revelry, you'll be ensuring that Young at Heart can continue its mission to rescue and rehome senior pets. The funds raised during the Silver Paws gala provide comprehensive medical care to rescued senior pets, readying them for adoption and ensuring that all of their health needs are addressed while in Young at Heart's care. The evening also supports our Sanctuary Program, which provides permanent residence to rescued senior pets with complex medical needs. Don your best cocktail attire (and add a bit of pirate finery if you dare), enjoy a fine cup of grog, and help older dogs and cats get the second chances they deserve! Tickets on sale now!
