Each November, hundreds of animal-lovers come together to celebrate another year of giving second chances to the animals who need it most. They renew their commitment to our community’s most vulnerable cats and dogs and make the impossible suddenly possible. In 2019, the Rags to Wags gala celebrates fourteen amazing years and this magical evening is getting even better as we prepare to Unleash Second Chances!
Rags to Wags is the Austin Humane Society’s largest fundraiser of the year, raising more than $450,000 in 2018. This single night makes it possible for AHS to provide the highest quality medical care, food, shelter and endless love for thousands of animals in the months ahead. Rags to Wags truly makes second chances possible!
The 14th Annual Rags to Wags gala will feature a fabulous cocktail hour where you can mix and mingle with fellow animal-lovers and have your photo taken with some furry friends. Our silent auction is packed full of fantastic items from exclusive experiences to gorgeous handcrafted jewelry – there’s something for everyone!
During the Rags to Wags program, you’ll enjoy a delicious seated dinner, have a chance to chat with friends and see some of the amazing happy tail stories you made possible from the previous year. Then, hang on to your hats, as our Cowboy Auctioneers take the stage for our incredible live auction! The program finale is one you'll want to stay for as celebrities and their furry friends take to the runway in an unforgettable runway show! This year's theme is truly transformative!
To wrap up this magical evening, we'll host an exclusive VIP after party where you can indulge in late-night bites, grab a signature cocktail and dance the night away. It's the purr-fect way to cheers another life-changing year.View Map
