In an attempt to keep its doors open, the Humane Society of Young County will hold more fundraisers.
One of the fundraisers is a silent auction going on now. The silent auction features about 50 items including Texas Rangers tickets with a parking pass, artwork, jewelry, vet services, a Holiday Inn and Pizza Hut pizza package, spay/neuter certificates from Tim Odom, chiropractic sessions, dog grooming, breakfast basket, movie passes, dining passes, a gift certificate from Pam's Health and Nutrition Center and much more.
The auction is located at First National Bank. Those interested can bid on items during regular bank hours, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. until Thursday, Aug. 15. Auction winners will be announced from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 17, at Tractor Supply.
That same day, the Humane Society will host an adopt-a-thon, offering dogs up for adoption. The event will include a bake sale. Cross Timbers Church will cook hot dogs, and the Young County 4-H will cook hamburgers. Winners need not be present to win.
The Humane Society will also host a drawing for a blanket or a doggie pail. During the month of August, anyone who adopts a dog or cat will be entered into a drawing to win. The cat adoptee winners will receive a blanket from Lone Star Graphics featuring a photo of the cat with its family custom-printed on the blanket. The dog adoptee winner will receive a doggy pail filled with goodies and a deluxe spa from Jitterbugs Grooming. Certificate includes bath, PETicure, trimming all four pads and custom hair styling from tip to tail. The winners will be drawn Friday, Aug. 30.
