In additional to the silent auction we will have door prizes, raffles, mystery bags and an Octoberfest dinner. Tickets to the event will be $20.00 in advance, $25.00 at the door.

To make this event successful we need, in addition to your attendance, items for the auction. We are now accepting artwork, gift cards, new items of a $20.00 value or more (items need not be cat related), monetary items (we will shop for you. Please ear mark your donation “auction”).

2) RIP Sweet Molly. Molly is the namesake for our Molly's Fund, which helps pay for special medical needs for our cats. Years ago a polyp was found in Molly's ear and she had to travel to Columbus for the surgery since it wasn't done locally at that time.  The successful and expensive surgery was partially paid for by donations from some wonderful supporters, so we decided to establish Molly's Fund, to help pay for other medical procedures that might come up at the shelter.  Many cats have benefited by the fund..Stanton, Johnny Fever, Baby Bear and of course Hope.  Molly was a loving, wonderful girl who would purr nonstop.  She died the morning of 9/16/13 peacefully from kidney failure.  Supporting Molly and other cats like her today by donating to the Molly Fund.  A donation to Molly's Fund would be a loving tribute to a very special cat who will be greatly missed.
