Bet for Pets

June 18, 2022 @ 6:30 pm - 10:00 pm PDT


It’s the return of Bet for Pets!

Try your luck at Animal Aid’s Bet for Pets fundraiser, where every rescue animal is a winner thanks to your support!

The festivities kick off on Sunday, June 12 with the opening of our week-long online silent auction. From travel destinations to local delicacies and more, these auction items are not to be missed, and you can feel even better knowing every bid you place is for the animals.

Then, on Saturday, June 18, join us in OMSI’s outdoor courtyard for the main event: Hosted by Poison Waters, the evening features crowd-favorite casino games, savory bites and delightful sips, raffle prizes, the conclusion to our silent auction, and more.

Please help us make this fundraiser a jackpot for the animals with your attendance!

Please note: Due to anticipated rainy weather, we are moving a small selection of event elements indoors alongside continuing to use the outdoor courtyard. With this being the case, we are now asking all attendees to please wear a mask when not eating or drinking. We appreciate your help to keep the community as safe as possible! Please feel free to reach out to us at contact@animalaidpdx.org if you have any questions.

Your ticket includes all food, 2 drinks, and a starter pack of gaming funny money.

Even if you can’t play a hand, you can still lend one:

 While we hope to welcome and thank you in person on June 18, we know that life is busier than ever these days. If you’re unable to attend the event but still want to lend your support, we hope you’ll consider making a donation in lieu of your ticket purchase.

Because this is our one-and-only major fundraising event for 2022, we have an ambitious $50,000 goal in front of us, and every contribution counts!

Whether you are a new contributor or a longtime donor, it is because of your support that we are able to commit to helping special needs cats and dogs, as well as provide individualized care to each of our adoptables, like Animal Aid alum Eddie and Joey featured above. Your donation allows us to look after any and all of the needs of our rescue animals—from medical to behavioral to simply providing them with time and environment they need to decompress and blossom. We hope you’ll help this lifesaving work by making your contribution today.
