How did Shop-a-paw-looza 2015 end up?
Funny you should ask.
WE RAISED MORE THAN $12,000! (Sorry, but that totally deserved all-caps!) TWELVE THOUSAND DOLLARS for the 600+ cats and dogs who come through our doors each year. That's a new record for us, the most we've ever raised in a single auction, and we couldn't be more excited and grateful to everyone who contributed.
We'd just like to say a sincere thank you to everyone who donated – local, and as far away as Toronto, New York City and Florida. We know that times are hard; we know that donations aren't easy to make, which is why we appreciate them so, so much.
Thanks also to all the people who bid on these items. You guys were AWESOME! So generous! So much FUN! It was like being at a three day party! And thanks to everyone at the Humane Society who worked double-time to make this event a success. So thank you. We mean it. When you snuggle up with your own cat or dog tonight, you can feel proud of yourself for making a difference in the lives of animals who aren't as lucky. Love to you all!
Stay tuned to the Lakeland Humane Society's Facebook page for next year's auction!
