Welcome!Pictures updated 2/23/2014!
This is it! The 9th Annual Wags-N-Whiskers Silent Auction Website. The Humane Society of Elmore County (HSEC) will host a Silent/Live Auction on August 1, 2014 to raise funds to support the needs of the animals in our care. HSEC supports each municipality in Elmore County; each municipality provides a fraction of the funds necessary to operate the Shelter facilities. Dedicated Board members, volunteers and organizations host fundraising events to help the HSEC operate successfully.
Auction categories are listed above. By clicking the category, you'll get to see pictures and descriptions of items in the auction. We will continually update the categories as auction items are available to post. Come back often to see the new auction items which have been added. The selection varies widely because donors love big dogs, little dogs, short-haired cats or long-haired kittens and have excitingly varied tastes!
The Auction will be held at the Wetumpka Civic Center on Friday, August 1, 2014. The doors open and bidding starts at 6:00 p.m. We encourage you to purchase admission tickets in advance. Tickets may be purchased at the Shelter or at the door the evening of the event. Cost: $15/person or $25/couple.
An organization or individual may purchase a reserved table (limited number of tables) at the auction to further support Shelter efforts. This $300 purchase provides a reserved table which seats eight (eight tickets for you and your guests are provided) to assure you have seating between bidding in both the silent and live auction portions of the evening.
Would you like to donate an item for the silent auction? Please fill out this form and bring the item to the shelter during business hours. If you'd like to help promote the Silent Auction, please use this flyer.
There will be items on tables to bid on. You'll have to keep checking as someone else may want the same item and out-bid you! Then… you get to out-bid them! There will be a live auction segment where items are auctioned to the highest bidder on the spot!
At the close of all bidding, Live Auction Winners will go to the stage area to secure payment finalization, then proceed through check-out. At the close of all bidding, Silent Auction Bidders check the items they have been bidding on at the tables, if their bid is the highest/last bid; then take the auction sheet(s) to payment tables (cash/checks and debit/credit card), secure a receipt for payment, pick-up their items and take their new priceless treasures home.
Thank You to all who support the Shelter at the 2014 Wags-N-Whiskers Silent Auction!
