2023 Tuxes & Tails Garden Party Gala

Join us for Tuxes & Tails Saturday, June 10th, to celebrate animals, bid on exclusive auction items, and support the life-saving work of HSCO.

Tuxes& Tails is the Humane Society of Central Oregon's largest and most important fundraiser of the year, raising funds to provide shelter, medical, and behavioral care for 3,000 animals in Central Oregon. 

This year we strive to raise more than $300,000 to provide a safe space for every animal that visits our shelter, with programs in place so that companion animals are not abandoned or relinquished due to financial constraints. 

Click here to register now for Tuxes & Tails and join us for one of the community's favorite events.
