AUCTION FOR THE ANIMALS 2008
2008 Poster UPDATE: The 14th Annual Humane Society of Pagosa Springs Auction for the Animals on August 22 was a huge success with over 340 people attending the event bringing in over $34,000. The Humane Society of Pagosa Springs would like to say thank you to everyone who donated items, who donated time (volunteers) and attended. Special thanks to our auction sponsors: Alley House Grille, Farrago Market Café, DHL Consulting LLC, Spectrum Construction, Citizens Bank of Pagosa Springs, Wells Fargo Bank of Pagosa Springs, Ears 2 U and Old West Press. We literally would not be the organization we are without our continued support from the community, volunteers, staff and treasured board of directors.

The 14th Annual Humane Society of Pagosa Springs Auction for the Animals is Friday, August 22 with doors opening at 6 p.m. and benefits the homeless dogs and cats of Archuleta County. This annual fundraising event is a great evening for everyone and, more vitally, is the most important fund-raiser of the year for your Humane Society. The event begins at 6:00 p.m. with the silent auction followed by the live auction at 7:45 p.m.

Advance tickets for this festive affair are available at the Pagosa Springs Chamber of Commerce, Moonlight Books, Plaid Pony and the Humane Society Thrift Store until August 21, after which tickets will be available at the door. Ticket prices for this extravaganza are $25 in advance and $30 at the door, which includes wine and beer, and a commemorative wine or beer glass. There will be an array of gourmet hors d'oeuvres from Farrago Market Café and Alley House Grille that will be served throughout the silent auction, followed by delectable, delightful desserts from Pagosa Candy Company. Ladies, this is your chance to dress up and to get your date out of those jeans and T-shirt.

Jewelry We have already received many wonderful auction donations, so there is something for everyone. Perhaps you're a sports buff? Or like to ski in the winter? Or would you like to get away for a weekend at a hotel or B and B with dinner? Maybe you collect autographed scripts or beautiful artwork. Or signed memorabilia. How about a women's snow board and bindings, maybe an electric bass guitar, pet gift baskets, salon treatments? We have a Weber Performer Grill and an Orvis canvas watercraft kayak for fishing, beautiful custom-made jewelry, along with lots of gift certificates from local merchants. If you are not the outdoor type, but you enjoy curling up with a good book, then you're in luck. We have many autographed books by excellent authors and a very special donation of a signed book by Dean Koontz titled "The Darkest Evening of the Year." His books always become part of a bidding war, due to the personal inscriptions he writes in each book. This is just a small sample of the many items that have been donated to the upcoming Auction.

This yearly fund-raising event would not be a success without the support of all the local businesses and financial donations already made to this upcoming event. Custom jewelry, fine art and gift certificates to some local retail businesses and your favorite local restaurants are coming in daily. We want to thank all of you for your support. To offer your donation, or for more information, contact the Humane Society administration office located above the Humane Society Thrift Store, or call at 264-5549. You don't want to miss the Auction for the Animals, so plan to attend one of the most enjoyable evenings of the year which benefits a great cause - keeping our county free of wandering cats and dogs and providing them with a temporary home until they can be reunited with their owners or an adoptive home can be found.
