The Fur Ball 2020 is Cancelled

In light of recent recommendations from the Santa Clara County Department of Public Health regarding coronavirus, Humane Society Silicon Valley has made the incredibly difficult decision to cancel The Fur Ball 2020. The event, which had been scheduled for March 28 will be postponed until Spring 2021. The new date will be announced as soon as it is set.

Champions of HSSV

Conni Ahart and Clint Severson first became involved with HSSV in 1999 when they made a $20 donation. After attending a few events and learning more about our efforts to save lives, these avid animal lovers became deeply involved with HSSV. Clint’s company Abaxis generously sponsored events, and Clint served on HSSV’s Board of Directors from 2016 to 2019. Conni was a Gratitude Ambassador, thanking individuals for their contributions, and is an advocate for HSSV in the community.


In 2019, Conni and Clint generously committed $1,000,000 in support of Shelter Medicine, Regional Rescue, Mobile Spay/Neuter Services, Disaster recovery, and Community Development. “It’s a way of having a legacy,” says Conni, when speaking of their gift. We are incredibly grateful to Clint, Conni, and their beloved cat Godot for their transformational gift. 


Recently, Conni and Clint shared why they made this significant gift and why they encourage others to consider making similar transformational gifts to HSSV.
