2023 marks HSCO’s 17th year of hosting Tuxes & Tails, and 62nd year of providing shelter, medical, and behavioral care for 3,000 animals in Central Oregon.

Enjoy an exciting new venue at the Athletic Club of Bend, with enhanced opportunities to mingle amongst animal lovers while knowing all proceeds benefit local animals in need.

Register now for Tuxes & Tails and join us for one of the community's favorite events.

Tuxes & Tails is the Humane Society of Central Oregon’s largest and most important fundraiser of the year.

Tuxes & Tails will be reinvented this year with an exciting new venue that is outdoors and, under tents, at the Athletic Club of Bend. Our new location allows HSCO to showcase shelter animals and offer improved meal, beverage and, service options.

Our donors attend Tuxes & Tails to celebrate animals, bid on exclusive auction items, and support the life-saving work of HSCO. In 2022 more than 300 affluent animal lovers attended Tuxes & Tails in person. 2023 will be bigger, more lavish, and better than ever.

The money raised at Tuxes & Tails supports veterinary care for shelter animals, supplies our HOPE pet food bank, and provides individuals and families in crisis with a safe place for their pets while receiving care and social services. These programs are in place so that companion animals are not abandoned or relinquished due to financial constraints.
