Seattle animal lovers showed their fondness for four-legged furry friends by generously donating $4.26 million at Seattle Humane’s 27th annual “Tuxes & Tails” auction and fundraiser held at the Bellevue Hyatt Regency on Saturday, May 7.

The special “Fund-A-Need” project was the highlight of the annual gala and raised $3.84 million for Seattle Humane’s Capital Campaign – named “Animal People Can” – to equip a new 57,000-square-foot shelter, adoption center and veterinary teaching hospital scheduled for construction on its campus in Bellevue. Over $27 million has been raised since Animal People Can was launched in 2014.

A silent and live auction, featuring one-of-a-kind experiences such as dinner at Canlis with friends Seahawks kicker Steve Hauschka and former Sounders goalkeeper Kasey Keller, brought in $420,000 with those funds dedicated to the direct care of the animals at Seattle Humane.

After completing phase one fundraising for Animal People Can, Seattle Humane is ready to begin construction of a $30 million animal shelter, adoption center and veterinary teaching hospital that will be capable of placing 10,000 pets per year.

“Now it’s time to fill the building,” said CEO David Loewe. “These extraordinary funds raised tonight from our Fund-A-Need project will provide equipment needed to keep dogs, cats, and small animals happy and healthy during their stay with us as well as make the shelter a warm and welcoming environment for the public.” The equipment includes x-ray machines, anesthesia and dental machines, caging for dog kennels and cat cubbies, and materials for building separate surgery, ICU, recovery, and isolation areas.

Tuxes & Tails guests received a surprise announcement during the Fund a Need portion of the evening: a $1 million match by philanthropists Jim and Bet Schuler, long-time supporters of Seattle Humane.

Seattle Humane has been saving animals and completing families since 1897, and the impact has been tremendous. In 2015, Seattle Humane placed 7,000 pets into loving homes, rescued more than 4,500 pets from other shelters, and spayed and neutered 1,200 pets belonging to low-income families, all while achieving a 98.3 percent life-saving rate, one of the highest in the nation. The new shelter, slated to open next summer, will allow Seattle Humane to place 10,000 animals each year, and spay and neuter over 7,000 pets each year.

“We are so grateful for the support of our generous donors at tonight’s event,” said Loewe. “We invite everyone in our animal loving community to join us in our mission to save more lives!”

I absolutely love Seattle Humane Society.  I love how it is run, I love the fact that the volunteers always seem to have a smile on their faces, I love the care given each and every pet that finds its way to this shelter, I love the Maxmobile and I love the support the community gives this amazing organization.Nearly 1000 guests enjoyed SHS’s 25th annual Tuxes and Tails fundraiser in Bellevue recently which is a testament to SHS.Local media and former Super Sonics Slick Watts and Gus Williams, showed their support by walking the runway with Seattle Humane’s adoptable shelter pets.

“We’re proud to host Tuxes & Tails – a spectacular event for a great cause,” said CEO David Loewe, “but we could not do it without our charitable sponsors, hundreds of supporters who procure and donate auction items, our dedicated staff and volunteers who ensure that the night goes off without a hitch, and our guests who give so generously to the animals.”The special “Fund-A-Need” project was the highlight of the live auction and raised more than $570,000 for Seattle Humane to expand its Community Outreach Programs. These live-saving services provide critical pet food and vet services to thousands of pets belonging to low-income seniors, cancer patients and people disabled by HIV/AIDS. This Fund-A-Need ensures that thousands of people in our community will not be forced to give up their pets when they need them most.

If you couldn’t make it to Tuxes & Tails this year, it’s not too late to make a difference! You can still make a donation to the Seattle Humane Society at tuxesandtails.org.

About Diane Rich

I have been training dogs and their people for over 25 years. I work with pups from 7 weeks old to senior plus dogs and offer basic obedience to advanced off leash training both privately and group classes. Other services include behavior consultations to help both ends of the leash with everything from aggression, puppy/dog manners and public manners to separation anxiety. As a "real world" dog trainer, I take training out of the classroom or home when both the pet and family are ready, and take training to the street. I also offer pet therapy training classes preparing both the handler and dog for their therapy test and future service as a therapy team. I also coordinate several pet therapy programs in the Seattle area. My complete bio, description of services, class dates and on line class registration is listed on my website at www.spokesdog.com.
