Woof! Woof! Welcome!
This is it! The 8th Annual Wags-N-Whiskers Silent Auction Website. The Humane Society of Elmore County (HSEC) hosts this Silent/Live Auction the second to the last Friday night in July each year 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 on the left. 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 when auction items have been added (date indicates last update). The selection varies widely because the donors that love big dogs, or little dogs, or short-haired cats or long-haired kittens have excitingly varied tastes. Let your cursor 'hover' over the picture and additional information about the item will appear. If you would like to see a larger picture of the item, click on the picture. Close the larger picture to return viewing the auction items.
The Auction will be held at the Wetumpka Civic Center on Friday, July 19, 2013. The doors open and bidding starts at 6:00. 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 and $25/couple.
Our reserved tables were a hit! This year, an organization or individual may purchase a reserved table (limited to four tables) at the auction to further support Shelter efforts. This $300 purchase provides a reserved table that 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.
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 (further details follow). 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, they 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. Best of luck to all who support the Shelter at the 2013 Wags-N-Whiskers Silent Auction!
