Did you know that the Allen Animal Shelter takes in several hundred animals every year?

To help them continue to feed animals in need and offer crucial veterinary care, the Allen Civic Ballet wants to help raise awareness and collect donations.

The Allen Civic Ballet is providing a free performance of classical and contemporary dance on March 25th, 2023 at 3:00pm where there will be adorable, adoptable pets available as well as a donation drop off sight for new and gently


used items.

If you are unable to attend, we will be collecting items at our studio located at 602 E Main St, Suite E. Allen, Tx 75002 now through April 1st.
