CHAMPAIGN -- They help more than 1,500 stray animals find homes every year, but Friday, the Champaign County Humane Society was the one getting help.

Rows of silent auction items were available for people to bid on at the Fur Ball. It's the group's biggest fundraiser of the year.

The money helps further its mission to provide vet care, training and shelter for stray pets awaiting adoption. The society hopes to top last year's $85,000 total.
