Join Young at Heart for a fun-filled evening of fundraising and entertainment that ensures Young at Heart can continue its mission to rescue and find loving homes for senior pets in need. The night is sure to hit a home run with dog and cat lovers alike! Join us to give homeless senior pets a second chance!

The evening includes:

  • Champagne & Appetizers

  • 5 Course Dinner with Wine & Dessert

  • Open Bar to Wet Your Whistle

  • Wine Pull & Raffles to Delight You

  • Toe-tapping Live Music by Cary and the Giants

  • Silent Auction with Incredible Items You Can't Resist

  • Exciting Live Auction and Fund-a-Need Paddle Raise

  • Photobooth by Fotio (aka The Coolest Photo Booth Ever)

  • Meet the Senior Pets of Young at Heart and Collect their Trading Cards!


This very special night is the most important fundraiser of the year for Young at Heart. While you enjoy an elegant evening with baseball flair, you'll be ensuring that Young at Heart can continue its mission to rescue and rehome senoir pets. The funds raised during the Silver Paws gala provide comprehensive medical care to rescued senior pets, readying them for adoption and ensuring that all of their health needs are addressed while in Young at Heart's care. The evening also supports our Sanctuary Program, which provides permanent residence to rescued senior pets with complex medical needs.

Last year Silver Paws big-hearted guests raised $130,000 to help homeless senior pets get a second chance. As we prepare to open an adoption center for senior pets later this year, we invite you to be a part of this important event to help provide a brighter future for older dogs and cats in shelters. This night holds so much fun, and so much promise for senior pets that just need a second chance!

Young at Heart Senior Pet Adoptions

Young at Heart is a nonprofit organization specializing in rescuing "senior" dogs and cats from shelters where they are going to be euthanized, simply due to their age. We rescue them, get them all the veterinary care they need, and then care for them for as long as it takes to find them a forever home. Over 1000 senior dogs and cats have found happily ever afters thanks to Young at Heart! Events like these help ensure we can continue to save senior pets from being needlessly euthanized in area shelters, and give them a second chance they so deserve.
