Join us for Las Vegas' premier dog show and silent auction benefiting the Valley's lost and abandoned animals. Twenty-five shelter dogs from The Animal Foundation will strut their stuff on the red carpet and compete to be named top dog. Only one dog will be crowned "Best in Show," but all the cuddly canine participants will be available for adoption during the event. 

All proceeds will benefit the many lifesaving programs at The Animal Foundation.

General Admission Tickets

Tickets are just $5 - children 5 and under are free!

Purchase your ticket today to ensure you can see all the animals strut their stuff on the red carpet on Sunday, April 30 to compete for the title of Best in Show...and your heart!

How the Event Works

Silent Auction

If you have questions about the bidding process, please email

You don't need a Best in Show ticket to bid on silent auction items! Whether you're able to attend the event in person, virtually, or not at all, you won't want to miss out on the amazing auction items at this year's Best in Show. Get ready to bid on a variety of once-in-a-lifetime travel packages. 

All bidding will take place online. The auction will end at the conclusion of the show on Sunday, April 30. And the best part is, all proceeds go directly to The Animal Foundation's lifesaving programs to help homeless animals in our community.

If you are the winning bidder for one of these amazing auction items and are NOT at the event, you must pick up your item from The Animal Foundation at a later date.
