About Black Tie and Tails

Since 1998, Black Tie & Tails has been one of Pittsburgh's most unique, exciting and lifesaving events. And, just as our daily lives have transformed over the past few months, this year's Black Tie & Tails is going to look a little different as we present our first-ever virtual gala!

Although day-to-day operations at Animal Friends are not what we are used to, one thing that has not changed is our commitment to providing life-changing and lifesaving programs, services and resources to the pets and people of our community who need them most.

That's why your support of this year's Black Tie & Tails is more critical than ever before!

This year is your chance to do Black Tie & Tails your way, whether you're planning to tune in by yourself, with family or during a small gathering with close friends - while staying safe, of course. Best of all, your four-legged family members are invited to join the party!

We may not be able to gather together for the Best Gala in the 'Burgh this year, but we can assure you that you won't want to miss the heartwarming stories, lively online auctions, special performances and video messages from a few of our celebrity friends and their beloved pets! And, the entire gala is being produced by our friends at LUXE creative, so we know you won't want to miss a minute of the fun. 

We simply can't wait to show you what we have in store for Black Tie & Tails ...
