The 19th Annual Fur Ball

The Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center's 19th Annual Fur Ball will be held on Saturday, August 17, 2024 at the Great Falls International Airport Conference and Event Center. The Fur Ball is our annual benefit for the homeless animals that reside at the MC-AAC. The event is filled with fine dining, cocktails and hors d'oeuvres, live and silent auctions as well as other opportunities to win valuable prizes...All for the love of animals!

The Fur Ball is our most important fundraising event of the year. This event raises funds to benefit the animals in our care. As a private, non-profit organization, our Center relies on service income, grants, and fundraising for 100% of our funding.

Live and Silent Auctions

As our most important fundraising event of the year, auction purchases are extremely important for generating income. Each winning bid will give homeless cats and dogs temporary shelter, outstanding care, nutritious food, medical care, and the overfilling love that each animal deserves!

This year, our silent auction will be open prior to our event! All silent auction bids and purchases will take place online. The silent auction is open to each supporter of ours, whether they are in attendance at our event or not! Each item will have it's title, description, and photos for online viewing.
