Humane Society of Elmore County News – 23 Jul ‘12
Only five more days! Make sure to join us at 6:30 pm, this Friday, 27 July at the Wetumpka Civic Center (212 S. Main Street) for our Wags & Whiskers “Bone-A-Fit” Auction! This is our biggest single fund-raising event of the year for our animals so we hope for a huge crowd. You don’t have to worry about dinner as there will be yummy hors d’oerves & desserts – much of it all homemade or from local restaurants. You will be able to take your time bidding on the over 400 items for auction in between snacking on all the great food and visiting with friends. This is both a silent and live auction event with something for everyone – guaranteed!
If you haven’t yet just go to our special auction website at www.elmorehumane.com where you can see each and every item that will be available such as antiques & collectibles, artwork and household décor; pet related items; jewelry, furniture, gift certificates for trips, hotel stays and services; coin collections; sports items and so much more. On the website you will see a picture and description of each item along with an auction estimate for how much that item is estimated to be worth but the minimum opening bids will always be much, much lower than the estimate. In many cases opening bids will be all of $5, so there will be something for everyone, even if you are on a budget. In case you donated an item after the auction deadline, it may be in our auction as ‘too late to classify’ meaning it won’t be on the website or it may be held for next year’s auction.
To help us keep our evening lively and fun, we are again joined by Bill Dollar from WLWI as our Master of Ceremonies and Scott & Michelle Williams from High as the Sky Auction Company will ensure our live auction portion is dynamic and a lot of fun! Tickets to this “can’t miss” event are $25 couple/$15 single and can be purchased at the door or at our shelter (255 Central Plank Road, Wetumpka). the rest of this week. For any questions contact us at the shelter at 334-567-3377 or send an email to email@example.com and see you Friday!!!
Dog Breed Info: Yorkshire Terriers are terriers by nature and are brave, determined, investigative and energetic. Named for the English city from which they originally hail, Yorkshire Terriers were used in the nineteenth century to catch rats in clothing mills. The Yorkie belonged to the working class, especially the weavers but eventually the breed left the workforce and became a companion animal to families of European high society. Yorkies are easily adaptable to all surroundings, travel well and make suitable pets for many homes. Due to their small size, they require limited exercise, but need daily interaction with their people. Their long coat requires regular brushing.
