Painted Desert Fur Con

The Dust Has Settled at PDFC

We waited so long for this, and it is already over. We could not have done it without all of the amazing support of our convention staff, special guests, and the furry community from near and far.

Creating something like this shows off the great things we are capable of when we come together. Over the weekend we brought together 1,135 furries, supporters, artists, and more to Painted Desert Fur Con's first year! We are blown away at the amount of support everyone has given us, and we hope to continue to grow with our community.

We had 207 Fursuiters show up to our group photo shoot and parade through the hotel. Photo was provided by our staff photographer Sparky (



Furries have big hearts and it shows. $8,968.00 was donated to Retired Paws over the weekend, to support retired K-9 families give their best friends the retirement they deserve. Corgi Events, LLC is donating $1,032 to make it an even $10,000. Retired Paws is a registered 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, to find out more, visit their website at

Update: There were some last minute donations, bringing the total to $10,618!

Onward to 2020
