2020 Magical Dogstravaganza
Our Online Silent Auction is Now Open!
It’s all for the animals, so be sure to check it out and bid often and generously.
Welcome to our 2020 Dogstravaganza!
Dogstravaganza is the shelter’s largest fundraising event of the year. We have recrafted the event to be engaging and entertaining but fully virtual for the comfort and safety of our supporters. With your help, we can continue to be an independent, high-save shelter. We rely solely on the generosity of our community to help those who cannot speak for themselves.
We will be streaming the event live on Facebook, YouTube, and right here on this page.
We do have a great VIP event planned too! Tickets for the VIP Zoom Magic show will be per “screen,” not per person and we encourage you to invite your close friends and family to join you to participate. Click here to buy tickets to the VIP show.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Virtual Dogstravaganza?
A virtual Dogstravaganza ais a fundraising event where you participate online instead of in person. You can watch the live-streamed event for free, buy tickets to the exclusive VIP magic show or just participate in the auction. It is up to you but remember that all the funds raised help animals in our care.
How can I attend the event?

The event will be live on this page, our Facebook page and our YouTube channels. We look forward to seeing you there.
I am interested in the VIP Magic Show. How can I secure tickets?
The VIP magic show has two options. There is a 5 pm and a 6 pm show with the main fundraiser starting at 7 pm. This is an exclusive event and is only $100 per “screen,” not per participant. The show will be intimate and involve audience participation. You will want to get your tickets early since we do expect these to sell out. Get your tickets online: https://cbo.io/tickets/hsom/tix
