The Erie Humane Society's take on the Met Gala

THANK YOU - to everyone that helped make our inaugural Mutt Gala an unforgettable evening! We look forward to our 2nd Annual event, and hope you all will join us. SAVE THE DATE! SATURDAY, APRIL 29 2023.

Join us for the Erie Humane Society’s version of the Met Gala, guaranteed to be a PAWS-itively radiant night filled with high fashion and wet noses. In our world, all breeds are fashionable, and the Erie Humane Society’s pets are ready to strut their stuff on the catwalk in support of EHS’s first annual Mutt Gala.

Enjoy food, drinks, music, dancing, and lots of fun as we raise money for our outpatient medical care fund.

Formal attire with FLAIR!

** Please note - while we will feature a few adoptable dogs from our shelter at the Gala, personal pets are not permitted to attend the event.**


The Erie Humane Society has served the residents and pets of Erie County for 130 years. As a no-kill shelter, we rely solely on donations, grants, and fundraising events to assist in providing life-saving medical care to hundreds of pets in need each year. This kind of funding is essential to maintain our no-kill mission. In 2021, EHS spent over $80,000 on outpatient medical care to ensure that each pet residing with us has an opportunity to live an amazing life.

Your support is vital to our success and with a strong base of sponsors we are certain to raise funds to support the most critical needs of our shelter pets. As an independent agency not affiliated with any national organization, our work depends on the generous support of individuals and organizations. All funds raised at the Gala will directly benefit the EHS Outpatient Medical Fund. For many, emergency medical care is crucial for their survival and is a true testament of our dedication to rehabilitation. EHS strives to be an effective and innovative leader that works to strengthen the human-animal bond and improve the lives of companion animals, as well as the people who care for them.
