Virtual Edition: Livestream Link coming soon!

Meal delivered between 5pm and 7pm, program begins at 7pm!

The Helping Hands Humane Society invites you to the annual celebration of the human-animal bond…

Since 2001, Bone Appétit has been our annual celebration of the unique bond between humans and animals. Funds raised at this event go towards the care of the over 6,000 animals admitted to HHHS each year. These funds are vital to continuing our lifesaving mission.

This year will be a bit different than the past, because due to COVID-19 restrictions, it is most prudent to host this event VIRTUALLY!

The live, silent, and wine auctions are some of the highlights of Bone Appétit. The auction will be hosted on digital platform that you can access and bid from your computer, tablet, or phone and you can click the above link to learn more!

During the live-stream, you’ll hear about the progress being made to make Topeka a more humane city. You’ll also be able to meet adoptable pets and hear updates about animals you’ve helped save.

Tickets start at only $15 for individuals, and we have TWO exciting and fun watch party package available so that you can gather in groups of 5 or 10 to watch the event from the comfort of your home, with a hand-selected guest list of your choosing to ensure your comfort and safety during the pandemic! To reserve a watch party package, just fill out the reservation card listed above!

Did you know that it currently costs about $4,400 a day to operate Helping Hands Humane Society? With thousands of animals coming to us each year, the cost to care for them is staggering but unavoidable. With your support, we are able to provide pets with the second best home they’ll ever have. Donating at this event will help our medical center spay and neuter pets, provide lifesaving care, and keep the pets healthy. Your support will also assist us in community outreach and education ventures. Please join us at Bone Appétit or give a gift that will surely help save a life.

The digital auction and program does not require any paperwork for you to fill out, and will be a fun and easy way to help the our shelter!
