AARF Holiday Auction Raises Funds for Homeless Pets

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr

Raising funds for non-profit organizations has been tough in this economy. Donations are smaller and less frequent, and many foundations have less money available for grants.

One local animal welfare organization is partnering with Atlanta businesses to raise funds to save homeless pets. The AARF 2011 Holiday Auction features items from restaurants, museums, doggy day care centers and more! In addition, the auction includes two round-trip tickets on AirTran Airways and a weekend getaway at a historic bed and breakfast in Savannah.

All of the items have been donated, so 100 percent of the winning bids will be used to support AARF”s work to save homeless pets in Atlanta. AARF is hoping to raise at least $2,500 with the holiday auction. Holiday donations in addition to the auction would also be very appreciated.

The auction will run until December 10 at 5 p.m. Winning bidders can pick up their items at AARF”s Stone Mountain facility beginning on December 11. Participants are invited to participate in the auction online at http://www.32auctions.com/view_auction?id=AARFAuction&pwd=AARFAuction.
