The Rags to Wags gala is AHS’ largest fundraising event and provides support for thousands of homeless animals on their journey towards a forever home. The generosity of our sponsors directly impacts the programs and services AHS has created to save the lives of thousands of homeless animals each year. This means that because of your support, when an animal enters our adoption program we provide them quality care for both their medical health as well as their behavioral needs. As a no-kill shelter, we make a commitment to each animal in our care to provide spay/neuter surgery, a microchip, vaccinations, training, and lots of love until they ride happily off into the sunset.

"The Turner Family is honored to chair this year’s Rags to Wags. The work that the Austin Humane Society does for the community is outstanding, and we are glad to be a small part of the solution. We thought it was important to chair this event as a family, because we believe that young supporters are the foundation for the future of AHS. Our entire family has contributed to AHS, whether it is gathering blankets and towels for our furry friends, asking for donations as our daughter did as Junior Chair last year, or to help out that special friend who is in need of surgery. Every aspect of giving is important, and we like to stress this as a family. We look forward to Rags to Wags 2016 and hope that you will join us."

Under the leadership of President & CEO, Frances Jonon, the Austin Humane Society offers comprehensive, humane, life-saving animal services, transforming the lives of animals and the people who love them. Because we believe homeless animals deserve a chance to thrive in a loving environment, we offer innovative, nationally recognized programs that touch the lives of over 11,000 homeless animals each year.
