Virtual Talent Show


During the pandemic, many nonprofits had to pivot from the traditional in-person event fundraisers they relied on to online fundraisers. NCAL was no different. We were lucky to run our in-person gala in February 2020, right before the pandemic hit. In 2021, we got creative and designed an online talent show fundraiser, which was met with a lot of enthusiasm from our community during a time when people were still largely stuck at home and wanted opportunities to engage online. In the winter of 2022, when we began planning for our event fundraiser COVID cases were high and what the next few months would bring was still unpredictable. In our efforts to reproduce last year’s successful Raise the Woof virtual talent show, we have faced an unexpected challenge to hit our quota of contestants for the event’s online competition this spring. We are seeing that people are more excited about participating in face-to-face events right now and may be collectively experiencing Zoom fatigue. So with this in mind, instead of holding the virtual Raise the Woof show next month, we have decided to adjust our plans and will focus on new and exciting in-person fundraisers that sustain our mission.

We have a full slate of programs lined up for the rest of 2022 including a first ever Horse Show at our Equine Center, our Annual Meeting, a community Tag Sale, Yappy Hours, and a soon-to-be-announced premier fall fundraiser! 

  • We are grateful for our sponsors who have maintained their commitment to us and shifted their sponsorship to support these other in-person events NCAL is hosting in 2022. 
  • We are grateful for the individuals who have already fundraised towards the event. Any crowdfunding dollars raised will go directly into the NCAL Medical Fund, which helps hundreds of homeless animals each year with medical needs that surpass our budget for basic routine care.

Thank you for your understanding of our response to these changing times and for your continued support of our lifesaving work rescuing animals. We look forward to welcoming you to NCAL in-person this summer!
