The Humane Society of Summit County warmly invites you to the Pawsibility Ball, our annual celebration of the beloved pets that bring joy to our lives – for the benefit of those animals who are still waiting to find their forever homes in our care. We are proud to honor this year’s Animal Heroes for their incredible dedication to the homeless and abused animals of Summit County: Michael and Angela Remen, Dawn Bolin, and Kent State University Airport.

Presented in 2017 by our generous friends at LD Carlson, the Pawsibility Ball is our shelter’s signature annual fundraising dinner and auction attended by passionate animal advocates as well as local business and community leaders.

Our event is generously hosted once again by the McLeods: the voice of the Cleveland Cavaliers Fred McLeod and Beth McLeod of WOIO Channel 19. Guests will enjoy cocktails and a gourmet dinner, a fabulous silent and live auction, a moving tribute to our Animal Heroes, and an unforgettable showcase of precious adoptable dogs, cats, and critters that are saved through your support.
