Rescue the Animals SPCA Furball brings dog lovers together

Rescue the Animals, SPCA Furball was this Saturday at the Abilene Convention Center. Dog lovers and their pets gathered for the organization's biggest fundraiser of the year. This year's theme was Barbie. A silent auction was held and dog lovers danced the night away with their dogs to some tunes.

Proceeds go toward supporting Rescue the Animal's mission to save homeless pets. Every ticket and sponsorship purchased goes to helping an animal in need.
