A Cause for Paws

Party for the pets

It is time again for A Cause for Paws! Join us for this great dinner and silent auction with wonderful items, a live auction with one of a kind experiences, and a great way to help the homeless pets of Monroe County. Held in the spring, this event starts with drinks and time to peruse the silent auction tables. There is something for everyone here. Past items have included art created especially for Helping Strays, a hot air balloon ride, a variety of getaways, margarita parties and sports memorabilia. Dinner is followed by a live auction. Past winners have acquired a safari in Africa and a chance to drive a race car at Brickyard. Every year, there is the opportunity to get your own pet's photo on one of Helping Strays' vehicles. This year, it's the trailer, and your photo opportunity will include a professional sitting, and 5x7 copy of your chosen photo, and your pet's happy smile visible all over town.

There are also raffles, 50/50 drawings, a booze barrel, and several fun games. Past raffle items have included an iPad, television and patio lounger.

April 8, 2017 will be the 13th Annual Cause for Paws. This is a night for dining and dancing, with music, great food and wonderful items. Let's celebrate together as we celebrate our move into our new facility. Join Helping Strays and let's CELEBRATE!.

A Cause for Paws is the major fundraiser for Helping Strays and there are many ways to lend your support: Reservations and donations (list of attendees) and sponsorships are being accepted. Donated items are tax deductible and a great way to show your support, even if you can't attend. The program is a great way to advertise to the animal lovers in our community. You can also sponsor the event and receive tickets, advertising, and acknowledgement in the formal presentation.
