The city’s largest no-kill humane organization hosted its 16th annual Fur Ball at The Drake Hotel November 17. More than 800 guests and their four-legged friends attended the bash—hosted by Heather and Mark Yeager and Sarah Tyler Phillips—which saw a dog buffet and spa, featuring pawdicures and massages by an animal masseuse. The evening raised nearly 15 percent of the annual funds required to operate PAWS Chicago’s adoption and subsidized spay/neuter programs, which have reduced the killing of homeless pets in Chicago by 84 percent since its founding in 1997.
