From November 13 th to 20 th , Finding Them Homes ran their 5th annual online auction.
With hundreds of items donated by individuals and businesses, there was something for everyone during this highly anticipated event. Along with canine accessories of every variety were gift certificates, sports tickets, and gifts for people of all ages.
After a week of competitive bidding, the auction closed and our fantastic volunteers began the very, VERY long task of organizing all items and contacting the successful bidders to arrange pick up.
All told, the auction raised over $14,000 for the rescue! What a fantastic start to the holiday season.
This auction is one of our largest fundraising events each year, and the level of effort required to make it successful is intense. Each year, countless volunteers help with the collection, organization, and posting of the auction items. Our virtual moderators monitor the auction to ensure everyone is playing fairly. People free up space in their homes for all of the items and make themselves available for hundreds of pickups. And that’s not to mention all of our amazing supporters who participated by donating to the auction, or bidding on items. Hundreds of hours go into bringing it to fruition, and, as always, our fantastic community did not disappoint. With every dollar going to the dogs, each and every one of you have helped make this year a VERY Merry Christmas indeed. From all of us at Finding Them Homes, to each of you, we wish you also a very Merry Christmas, and we can’t wait to see what 2020 will bring!
