Diana Glascock explains what the donations are used for at the Twin Lakes Humane Society.

It was a full house last Saturday night at the Centre on Main; the third annual Fur Ball created an opportunity for people to come together to help Grayson County's animals by raising money for the Twin Lakes Humane Society.

According to TLHS Secretary/Treasurer Jennifer Carmine, the 2019 Fur Ball raised $23,070 to benefit TLHS, a group that supports the Leitchfield Animal Shelter.

"For us, this night is so very important because it gives us the financial support we need to continue our mission," she said. "Thank you to every single one of you who were there to celebrate with us. We appreciate you all, and we hope to see you there next year as well."

According to Diana Glasscock, president of TLHS, money raised by TLHS goes to help with all kinds of animal expenses.

She said their expenditures for 2017 were $22,400 for veterinary services; $4,500 for spay/neuter vouchers; $8,926 for half-off adoption sponsorships; and $11,221 for supplies for the shelter.

In addition to helping animals, participants were able to dress up in their fancy clothes, socialize, participate in a silent and a live auction, and eat good food, catered by K's Cafe.
