Save the date Friday May 2, 2014, for the 16th Annual 2014 Puttin’ on the Dog Event which will once again be held at the incomparable Hilton El Conquistador Tennis & Golf Resort.  Enjoy a view of the Santa Catalina Mountains, as you sip a glass of wine, sample scrumptious food from Tucson Originals restaurants, and listen to live music of Tesoro.  Our silent auction will be better than ever with over 400 auction items and the addition of grab bags and a fabulous wine-pull.  Don’t forget you can always extend the evening and purchase a special package to stay at the Hilton-even with your dog.

Voted the Best Spectacle for Charity Event by the Tucson Weekly for the past 7 years, Puttin’ on the Dog gets better every year.  In 2013, 900 people and 100 dogs attended and raised more than $200,000 to directly benefit the animals in our care.   Join us to make the 16th Annual 2014 Puttin’ on the Dog a howling success!
