Have you ever wanted a 1987 cherry red Ford Mustang Fox Body T-top with all original equipment and fewer than 5,300 miles? A Nolan Ryan autographed baseball? How about a selection of stunning jewelry pieces, including a Ronnie Willy silver and turquoise heart pendant? Would a Rick Unger painting look good in your home? How about a beautiful, hand-crafted wooden canoe, a Green Egg deluxe BBQ or a personalized poem composed for you by Dave the Poet?

Curiosity aroused? Then you should plan to attend the 20th annual Humane Society’s Auction for the Animals and see for yourself all the wonderful items available in the live and silent auctions. There will be something for everyone, at a price point for everyone, including a wonderful selection of gift baskets and gift certificates, so don’t miss this great opportunity to purchase a special treat for yourself and do your holiday shopping early, too.

This popular Pagosa event will take place this Friday, Aug. 22, at the Ross Aragon Community Center. Experience a gala evening in celebration of the 20th Auction for the Animals, featuring a delicious seated dinner and desserts. Fine wine and microbrewery beer will be available for purchase, and live entertainment will be provided by Bob Heminger. Dress is Pagosa fancy (jeans OK). Festivities begin at 6 p.m. with the silent auction followed by dinner at 6:30 p.m. and the live auction. Tickets are $35 and available only in advance of the event. Tickets may be purchased at the Humane Society Thrift Store, the Ross Aragon Community Center and online at www.humanesociety.biz.

Please plan to attend one of the most enjoyable gala evenings of the year in support of a great cause.

The Humane Society of Pagosa Springs serves our community by providing homeless and lost animals with temporary shelter and care until they can be reunited with their owners or an adoptive family can be found. We also operate the Pack Rack Thrift Store downtown, which serves the needs of so many in our community.

Our local Humane Society does not receive any funding from the Humane Society of the United States, American Humane, the A.S.P.C.A. or the United Way. The animal shelter relies on revenue from private donations, our thrift store and fundraisers such as the Auction for the Animals, to create a safe haven for animals in need.

For more information on the event, please contact the Humane Society at 264-5549. See you at the auction.
