Toast for Tails

In an effort to help keep our community safe, the 14th annual Toast for Tails event will be held virtually this year. Mark your calendar and join us November 9th - 14th to help support animals in need in our community! There will be a virtual silent auction all six days, a virtual live auction on November 14th, and goodies throughout the week to keep you motivated in the fight to help those that cannot help themselves!

November may seem forever away, but CFA is preparing to make this year's virtual Toast for Tails more memorable than ever! We are currently accepting donations for the auctions and sponsorships to make sure we can continue offering life-saving support to animals in 2021.

Toast for Tails is Concern for Animals annual fundraiser, with proceeds from the event’s live and silent auction going towards funding Concern for Animals continued operation. For thirteen years, Toast for Tails has pulled in hundreds of attendees with a fun night of wining and dining, the promise of exciting items from local businesses, restaurants, and artisans, and – most importantly – the mission of helping animals in need.

Concern for Animals is truly grateful for all the love and support this event has received throughout the years. The support of the community has made it possible for us to continue our work providing for pets and owners struggling in Thurston, Mason, and Lewis counties. Thank you could never be enough.

The Toast for Tails event is supported by many incredibly strong community partners that are fiercely dedicated to the fight of improving animal welfare in our shared community. Without their support, Toast for Tails would not be possible.

Sponsorships pay for event and office expenses, and enable low income pet owners to take care of the animals they love. Sponsorships can be made in the name of a business, individual, family, pet, or in memory, and the donor's contribution and commitment to the community is publicly acknowledged.
