The Humboldt County Animal Shelter is preparing for their annual Open House fundraiser and look to the community for help gather donations to help raise money for the shelter.
Organizers are looking for large ticket items to be sold in their silent auction. Those items, organizers said, bring the organization the most money. Donations of gift type items are also being accepted for their raffle prizes which are awarded to guests.
Money raised at the event goes to their emergency medical fund. Shelter staff said they often have animals that need more medical care than the shelter can afford and the money goes to pay their medical expenses.
Shelter staff said they were able to raise $4,000 last year. Donations for the raffle can contact the Animal Shelter at 707-840-9263.
