The Fur Ball, Abilene's annual Rescue the Animals fun fundraising event is coming up in February. Paul Washburn President and founder of Rescue the Animals says "the 2023 Fur Ball will be themed as a 1960s Peace, Love, & Dogs and I encourage everyone to come dressed in 60s style".

Word on the street is that the Fur Ball tickets are available now. So don’t be a square and miss out. Start putting your cool threads together because it’s going to be a groovy, good time for a great cause.
