More Information

What is the Fall Benefit?

The annual Fall Benefit is Pet Haven Inc. of Minnesota’s premier fundraising event. Guests enjoy dinner, silent auction as well as a local celebrity and pet fashion show featuring adoptable dogs and cats.

The Fall Benefit is truly Pet Haven’s most important fundraising event. All funds raised from the event go directly to providing food, shelter, and veterinary care for the hundreds of animals we take in each year. It also supports our humane education programs and spay/neuter grants.

What do I wear to Fall Benefit?

Business casual attire is requested while evening attire is optional and encouraged.

When do tickets go on sale?

Tickets go on sale a few months prior to the event, which is held in October or November each year. The 2013 Fall Benefit was held on October 19, 2013.

Should I purchase tickets before the event?

Definitely! The event has sold out in the past, and we cannot guarantee that tickets will be available onsite.

Can I bring my animal?

While any event is made more enjoyable by the presence of our beloved pets, we ask that you
leave your own companion animals at home for this particular evening in order to allow the wonderful Pet Haven adoptable animals to shine.

Who should I notify regarding my food allergies?

Please indicate your food preferences on the ticket purchase form. For additional questions, contact us at
