The 18th Annual Fur Ball

The Maclean-Cameron Animal Adoption Center’s 18th Annual Fur Ball was held on Saturday August 26, 2023 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 music, 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.

Thank you to all of our supporters for making our annual event a success! We wouldn’t be able to do it without you. We look forward to seeing you all again next year!
