Tonight I will be attending the 11th Annual Fur Ball in Richmond, VA. This is an event when people dress to the nines and rub shoulders with rescued mutts in the gorgeous Jefferson Hotel (ie, just my kind of shindig). It benefits the SPCA in Richmond, which is a seriously awesome organization. If you've thought about adopting from a shelter, even if you live nowhere near Richmond, I highly recommend taking one of their adoption surveys. It can give you a good idea of what kind of dog (breed, age, energy level, etc) or cat would be the best fit for you.
Here's hoping tonight's a howlin' good time, but I will report back with photos!
