The 18th annual Humane Society of Pagosa Springs Auction for the Animals will be held Friday, Aug. 24, at the Ross Aragon Community Center.
Please plan to attend one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year and support the animal shelter’s mission of providing a safe haven for the homeless, unwanted and lost dogs and cats in our community.
Our local Humane Society does not receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States, American Humane, the ASPCA or the United Way. The animal shelter relies on revenue from private donations, the Humane Society thrift store and fund raisers such as the Auction for the Animals to provide care and sustenance to animals in need.
We are still seeking additional new and like-new donations for this exciting event. Signed artwork and books, gift certificates, jewelry, sports and outdoor equipment, gift items, dog and cat related products, and other biddable items are needed to help make the auction a great success again this year.
If you have an item or items you would like to donate, deliver them to our administration office located above the thrift store or call 264-5549 to schedule a pick up. Donations in excess of $250 cash or verifiable value will receive one or more free tickets to the event. The Humane Society of Pagosa Springs is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and your donation is tax deductible to the full extent allowed.
Auction volunteers would greatly appreciate donated items as soon as possible so that they may be properly catalogued and included in our auction marketing materials. All donations must be received by 6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 20, to be included in the auction.
Advance ticket sales will begin on Monday, Aug. 13, and can be purchased until 5 p.m. Thursday, Aug. 23, at the Humane Society administration office and the Chamber of Commerce. Tickets are $25 in advance and $30 the day of the event.
For more information or to make a tax deductible donation to the auction, call the Humane Society at 264-5549.
