Tails in Bloom Gala 2020

COVID-19 Update (3/22/20):

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to postpone our event until the fall. We expect to have a new date in the coming weeks. Stay well.

At the Evanston Animal Shelter, we accept all the abandoned and abused dogs and cats that come through our door. Many of them are scared, anxious, and confused. Through the generosity of our supporters, we can provide the medical care, socialization, and rehabilitation these animals need to thrive so they can become treasured family members and enjoy the lives they deserve.
