Celebrating 25 Years of Barkin’ Ball!

For the last 25 years, the Santa Fe Animal Shelter’s most popular fundraiser, the Barkin’ Ball, has helped save the lives of countless homeless animals in Santa Fe County and beyond. We hope you will be a part of this year’s celebration of our hometown shelter! Join us in-person on Saturday, August 28 for a vegetarian dinner, drinks, and festivities to celebrate the lives of homeless animals in need. Doors will open at 4:30 p.m. for VIP guests, and 5:30 p.m. for general admission guests. 

Covid safe protocols will be in place for all attendees and staff. Unfortunately, we will be unable to welcome companion animals from the public this year.

We are pleased to grant the 2021 Barkin’ Ball Raphael Award to Roddey Burdine!

As a longtime devoted supporter of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter, not only has Roddey been generous in his philanthropy, but he’s given the Shelter countless hours of his time serving on the Board of Directors — eventually as chairperson. Roddey was one of the original visionaries that saw a need for a world class animal shelter in Santa Fe, and he was instrumental in seeing it to fruition. He truly embodies our mission to “support animals, save lives, and spread compassion.”

Join us to honor Roddey’s contributions and celebrate the impact of the Santa Fe Animal Shelter’s lifesaving work.
