Second Annual Online Auction for the Animals
August 29, 2016
Kitsap Humane Society’s (KHS) second annual Online Auction for the Animals is September 3-17. The Online Auction for the Animals is in conjunction with the organization’s largest event of the year, Animal Krackers. This year’s Animal Krackers is KHS’ 23rd annual gala and dinner event and will be held at the Clearwater Casino on October 1. Ticket purchase is required for the October 1 event. See kitsap-humane.org for more details.
In 2015, KHS decreased the number of auction items featured at the Animal Krackers event and started the Online Auction hoping to allow supporters who are unable to attend be a part of the Animal Krackers experience and contribute to this important fundraiser. The Online Auction raised over $16,000 for KHS in 2015 and supporters from across the nation bid on over 100 items.
This year’s auction will feature more than 150 unique auction items including gift certificates to local restaurants and attractions, weekend getaways, original artwork, vintage cameras and pet services. All proceeds benefit the shelter’s programs such as its community low-cost spay/neuter services and low-cost vaccine and microchipping clinics. “The Online Auction is a great way for someone to support KHS and the animals we care for who are unable to adopt a pet at this time or have not been able to attend one of our special events,” said KHS Events and Outreach Assistant Kimberly Cizek-Allen.
The Online Auction for the Animals is open to the community. Those interested can shop and bid on items at www.biddingforgood.com/KHSauction/2016 beginning September 3.
Kitsap Humane Society is a non-profit charitable organization that has been caring for animals in need since 1908. KHS found new homes for over 5,500 animals last year and maintains a 95 percent lives saved rate. KHS’ vision is that every adoptable companion animal has a home.
