    TULSA, Oklahoma - A fundraiser for a local animal support organization sold out Saturday benefiting several animal rescue programs; there was even a special guest in attendance. Country music star Carrie Underwood stopped by because an animal shelter she supports received an award.
    Fur Ball is the name of the Oklahoma Alliance for Animals 10th annual fundraiser gala. More than 300 people attended the event.
    "It's a sold out event and we're happy," said Jamee Suarez, with Oklahoma Alliance for Animals.
    The fundraiser for the Oklahoma Animal Alliance had a special visitor, Checotah native Carrie Underwood cheered on the charity she supports in her hometown. OAA recognized Happy Paws Animal Shelter for its spay-neuter and adoption programs.
    The Western-themed event helped raise more than $100,000 to fund OAA's programs, which help fight pet overpopulation, rescue animals and keep partnerships with other animal welfare organizations across the state.
    Organizers say Saturday's fundraiser will not only help their cause, but will honor animal shelters for their work.
    "It takes a lot of money to help animals, it's really expensive," Suarez said.
    Some donors even brought their dogs. Platty, the rescue dog, who has a national following for the growth on his snout, was recognized by OAA. Dog owner Gerald Pace brought his lab he rescued off the side of a Louisiana Highway to the fundraiser.
    "Beauty is very well behaved and actually enjoys coming to these events," Pace said.
    Supporter Pamela Reed said programs like OAA need support to save animals in need of care.
    "There's so many dogs that are needing out there, and I just wanna do what I can to help, this is a good way to help the animals," Reed said.
    She said people should never turn away the chance to adopt a dog or cat needing a new home.
    "You're saving a life, and they're not throw away dogs. There's a lot of awesome dogs in shelters,"
    OAA also recognized Dogville Daycare & Boarding for helping older and special needs animals.

    Thanks for the video. It looks like it was a great event. Carrie's publicist must have made sure they had a pre-event understanding that she would not be granting interviews since all the camera shots were from a distance and they didn't have her speak on camera.
