UPDATE: Due to time constraints we have had to delay the auction until June.
We have now set a date for our Fundraising Auction – it will start on May 22nd – so save the date! There are some really interesting pledges ranging from a professional pet photography session, to more business oriented things like a days worth of strategy consulting, to some great jewellery items and handmade toiletries. The items have been pledged by people across the world to help us raise funds for the dogs in the shelter in Romania and to help pay off vets bills.
We would like to raise a substantial amount of money so that we can make some real differences in the shelter and in particular so we can give puppies and weaker dogs a fighting chance of survival. Unfortunately most of our donations go straight to pay off our vets bills as we have a constant stream of dogs, and the odd cat, that we need to take out of the shelter for medical care or that we rescue injured from the road side. The sad reality is that most animals here if they are injured are just left to die in agony – when we see this we cannot just ignore them. This is why this auction is so important.
We hope that by having a specific event like this we can for once get a chunk of money together which we can use for a specific project, namely improving shelter conditions. You can contribute to this by sharing our auction event and there is also still plenty of time to donate things to the auction. Have a rummage through your drawers and cupboards – most of us have things that we do not really use and which someone else might value. Old jewellery or an unused Christmas gift or perhaps you have a particular skill which people might bid for. It is very easy to pledge items – just contact us at hopeforstrays @yahoo.co or email firstname.lastname@example.org with an image and information of your item. We will then post it on the auction page and once the final bid is in and we have received the money will we will let you know and then you can send or release the item to the bidder. Simple!
