The Georgetown Animal Shelter is seeking donations of artwork for the 2015 Art for Animals auction, to be held Saturday, May 9, 2015. The fundraiser is sponsored by the Friends of the Georgetown Animal Shelter and is their biggest fundraiser.
Donations of framed artwork and hand-crafted items, such as pottery, sculptures, jewelry, and glass work, will be accepted. Other donations being accepted for the auction include gift baskets, travel packages, and other unique items. Paintings made by the animals at the shelter also will be auctioned. Donors will receive two tickets to the event.
“The proceeds from Art for Animals have a huge positive impact on the animals at the shelter. We were recently able to upgrade our adoption trailer to better showcase the dogs and increase their chances of finding forever families. The Friends is able to provide equipment and services to the shelter to improve the lives of the animals while they are there, and to help animals throughout the community,” said Christy Hullum, president of the Friends group.
To make a donation for the auction, contact Jackie Carey, manager at the Georgetown Animal Shelter, at (512) 930-3527, or by email at Jackie.Carey@georgetown.org. Donations may be taken to the Georgetown Animal Shelter at 110 W.L. Walden Drive.
