Save the Date!

The Humane Society of Elkhart County is preparing to host its seventh annual “Best in Show” event, held at the Lerner Theatre’s Crystal Ballroom on Thursday, September 12, 2024.

This event is our major fundraiser for the year, providing much-needed funds for the day-to-day operations of the shelter. Last year, more than 300 animal lovers enjoyed a fun-filled evening voting for an exceptional group of furry friends and their humans to be crowned “Best in Show.” With their support and that of our generous sponsors, we raised nearly one-third of our annual operating funds needed to care for our animals.

Please join us in celebrating the phenomenal work of our Humane Society by becoming an event sponsor and, of course, attending this wonderful event. Your contribution will support the Humane Society of Elkhart County as we provide compassionate care while educating and advocating on behalf of animals.

In Memory of
Jonathan Tuff

We miss our dear supporter, committee
member, and friend of Best in Show and
the Humane Society of Elkhart County.
We dedicate this event to Jonathan Tuff.
