The event includes both a silent and live auction as well as entertainment during a cocktail hour.

The ideal candidate enjoys working closely as part of a team and is excited about offering creative ideas to support the planning of a spectacular event. The candidate should be able to work independently to complete tasks and feel comfortable reaching out to the community in support of SASF.

Responsibilities of Committee Members:

  • Support planning and execution of Furevermore Auction & Gala.
  • Manage procurement outreach and organization.
  • Attend planning meetings and assist with event coordination/details.

  • Experience with spreadsheets and databases preferred, not required.
  • Comfortable multi-tasking and working autonomously.

Mission Statement

In 2010, the Seattle Animal Shelter and a committed group of volunteers recognized that there were certain needs beyond the scope of what the City could fund. To better address these needs, the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) was formed. SASF raises critical funds to help enrich the lives of Seattle’s animals and empowers volunteers and the local community to become part of the effort.


In 2010, the Seattle Animal Shelter (SAS) and a committed group of volunteers recognized that there were certain needs above and beyond what the City of Seattle could fund. To better address these needs, the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation (SASF) was formed.

SASF is a non-profit organization run by a volunteer board that is dedicated to enriching and enhancing the lives of animals in the care of SAS. Thousands of dogs, cats and critters are helped every year and this support is made possible through generous donors and committed volunteers.

By raising these critical funds, SASF contributes to the health and wellbeing of Seattle’s homeless animals by funding life changing programs and services led by SAS. We invite volunteers and the local community to be part of the effort, and if you are already a supporter, thank you for putting the animals first.
