The Silicon Valley Fur Ball 2008

What fun!  For the first time ever I attended the annual black tie fund raiser for the Humane Society of Silicon Valley. The HSSV is a non-profit, privately funded shelter that serves the Bay Area. I have a very soft spot for the HSSV because it's where I found and adopted my dog Kitai from. It is a wonderful organization. My understanding is that it has managed, through adoption at it's own facility and by partnering with other shelters and rescues, to successfully reduce it's kill rate of adoptable animals to zero. It is a truly "Humane" society and shelter.

One of the main reasons we attended the Fur Ball was because our pal Woz was the reigning "King" of the Fur Ball this year.

Woz is a huge supporter of the HSSV. He even helped make and publicizes this video "www.CatsWithoutAHome.com" about how feral cats are faring here in the Silicon Valley and what we can do to help the cats and the organizations who look after them.

Kathy Griffin was the "Queen" of the Furball. She even wore a tiara. Here she is on the Big Screen.

Kitai had a water color portrait done. I think it really captured his scruffiness.

He also had a caricature done by artist Jodi Carr. So cute huh?

Morgan is about to enjoy the chicken piccata.

John had fun and even put 3 bids on a silent auction item. He didn't win it but I was glad he tried. All of the proceeds went to the HSSV.

The HSSV mobile unit. I adopted Kitai at the HSSV 4 years ago.

After the Fur Ball we went on a donut run. From left to right: Keith, John & Woz.

LOL The guys all wore their fancy clothes, the girls all changed into comfortable clothes. It was a really fun night but boy were Kitai and I tired at the end of it all.
