RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) -

The Richmond SPCA more than $600,000 for the Cinderella Fund, which is more than what they raised last year. 

The event was held at the Jefferson Hotel from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m. Richmond's Mayor Stoney participated in the Parade of Pets, which came down the hotel's grand staircase. 

He was with this year's Cinderella Pet, Tophe, "a dog who the Richmond SPCA saved from parvovirus after rescuing him from the Danville Area Humane Society."

There was also a dinner and a Cinderella live auction.

"The Cinderella Fund provides treatment and rehabilitation for sick, injured and neonatal homeless animals in the care of the Richmond SPCA," the organization said in a press release.

Last year, the Richmond SPCA cared for 4,119 homeless animals, and 3,505 of the animals required medical attention that was provided by the Cinderella Fund.

Last year's Fur Ball event raised $590,000. Their goal for this year's event was to raise $600,000.
