The Olympics are heading to Paris this summer. Before the torch is lit and the games commence, you can "Go for the Gold" this spring with the Humane Society of Sarasota County.

HSSC invites you to PAWS in PARIS on Friday, April 5, 2024.

Leave your passport at home. You'll need only an event ticket to be transported to the City of Light, conveniently located right here in sunny Florida at the eternally elegant Ritz-Carlton Sarasota.

The event begins at 11am. (If you want to arrive "fashionably early," consider taking advantage of VIP early admission with a sponsorship package.)

With your first step into the rarified air of the Ritz, you'll feel like you're walking the streets of Paris. As you make your way through the pre-function space, you'll encounter local boutiques, sumptuous cocktails, and--of course--adorable cats and dogs. You can snuggle a kitten, pet a pup, and pose for a picture under the Eiffel Tower. Be sure to smile for our PAW-parazzi!

When the doors to the ballroom open at noon, you'll be treated to a world-class lunch and decadent dessert, coupled with entertainment and activities that will have you saying "Oui!"--especially when you hear that all proceeds go directly to saving 3,300 animals this year!

Sponsorship opportunities and ticket packages are available in the ticket platform or by contacting Jaime Limoges at [email protected] or by calling 941.955.4131 x103.

Individual tickets are $225. Want to make sure you sit with your friends? Be sure to select one of our reserved table packages, which will accommodate 8-10 people. Sponsorships and reserved table packages include tickets and pricing incentives to attend our exclusive Faux Paws event in March. Faux Paws--the official Paws pre-event--is a special gathering to thank our sponsors and raise awareness of HSSC's mission.

What to wear?

It's impossible to capture the essence of Paris in one fashion directive. Instead, we invite you to express your own "je ne sais quoi" with your attire. You can elect to go "tres chic" in black, white, and red. Perhaps "haute couture" is more your style. Or maybe you'll channel the Olympic spirit and "go for the gold" in metallics. No matter how you interpret the theme, the goal is to feel your best. And who knows, you may even take home a medal for Best Dressed.

No matter what you wear, PAWS in PARIS sure to be a spectacular day celebrating the lifesaving mission of HSSC.

Help animals by contributing to our fundraising efforts.

As the area's premier no-kill shelter, the Humane Society of Sarasota County (HSSC) engages the hearts, hands, and minds of the community to help animals. HSSC receives no federal funding, nor are we affiliated with any other humane organization. We rely solely on contributions from individuals, corporations, and donations to achieve our lifesaving work.

More than 3,300 animals will receive food, medicine, and loving care in our facility this year. In addition, HSSC offers community-enriching programs: an affordable public animal clinic, humane education, pet therapy, obedience courses, a pet food pantry, and more.

We envision a community where all animals are cared for and loved. By donating, you help make that vision a reality.
