If you're still scrambling to lock down your Valentine's Day plans with your sweetheart and have a love for furry friends and giving back to those in need, we have just what the doctor ordered.

This Friday night, the Humane Society of Raleigh County invites you to their annual Fur Ball. It's an elegant evening featuring a silent auction, hors d'oeuvres and live music.

This is a semi-formal event. The Assistant Director of the Humane Society told 59News it should be a "purr-fectly fun night."

"It's gonna be a great charity for everyone to help our animals. It's on Valentine's Day, you can have fun and get dressed up and have a great time," said Nicole Shryock.

The event will be held at the Black Knight Country Club from 7-9 p.m. Tickets are $50 per person and may be purchased at the Humane Society of Raleigh County or Harvey's Wig Villa and Beauty Salon.

Call (304) 253-8921 or (304) 550-7021.
