On Saturday, October 27, 2012, more than 220 people gathered at the Swedish Cultural Center to raise a glass and a bid card in support of the great work of the Seattle Animal Shelter.

Thanks to the generosity of animal-loving Seattleites, our second annual “Raining Cats & Dogs” Auction netted more than $82,000 in contributions. We are so grateful for your support and excited about the many wonderful Shelter improvements these funds will enable!

Funds raised at the auction will go towards a variety of programs to enhance and enrich the lives of animals at the Shelter, including veterinary care for special needs animals, volunteer and public education initiatives, and spay and neuter assistance for pets in low-income families. In the coming year, we hope to fund some major capital improvements that will increase the comfort of the animals in the care of the Shelter.

If you haven’t already seen it, take 5 minutes to watch this video demonstrating the impact of the Seattle Animal Shelter, and how SASF deepens that impact.

And thank you all for donating to the Seattle Animal Shelter Foundation and supporting the great work of the Seattle Animal Shelter!
