Paw Prints hosts auction to save animals
Paw Prints Thrift Shop will be hosting a charity auction on May 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at their location in the Village of Oak Creek. All of the proceeds from the auction will be donated to the Paw Prints Humane Society of Sedona, Inc. with whom the Thrift Shop is affiliated.
"The Humane Society of Sedona provides care and shelter for abandoned and stray animals, giving them a second chance at a new forever home. The Thrift Shop is proud to be partnered with this great organization where currently 100 percent of the proceeds from sales at the Thrift Shop are donated to HSS. The Help the Animals Auction event was created to raise even more money for this very important cause as well as generate awareness throughout our community on what HSS has to offer." says Ansley Silvernagel, Store Manager of Paw Prints Thrift Shop.
In addition to adoptions, the Humane Society of Sedona offers many other programs that benefit the animals and people within the community. Currently HSS is the only low cost spay and neuter clinic for all of Northern Arizona. Additionally their Mobile Adoption Vehicle (MAV) allows for animals to be brought off site for adoptions at PetSmart and other locations giving animals a chance at adoption that otherwise might not have been seen. The MAV also serves as an emergency evacuation vehicle. Other programs include the Samson Fund, Kids & Kritters Camps, Pets for Seniors, Lost Pet Outreach, and City Dog Licensing.
"With all they do, you can easily see how valuable this organization is to the well being of not only animals but the entire community. We are hoping this auction will raise even more money to keep these programs going." comments Bill Pumphrey, Auction Volunteer and Animal Advocate.
