(Posted Nov. 6, 2020)

In lieu of its annual dinner at Der Dutchman, the Humane Society of Madison County is hosting a virtual fundraiser, “A Tail to Remember.” The event includes an online auction, an evening of music, and a raffle.

The auction runs from 5 p.m. Nov. 20 to 7 p.m. Nov. 27.

At 7 p.m. Nov. 21, the Humane Society will present an evening of music with Paul Beasley and the drawing for its Wags to Riches reverse raffle–all on Facebook Live.

Raffle prizes are: grand prize, $1,500; second prize, $750; third prize, $250. Additionally, 10 winners each will receive an Ohio Lotto ticket or a gift card to Ten Pin Alley.

Only 150 raffle tickets will be sold. They are $40 each and can be purchased starting Nov. 10 at the shelter, 2020 NE Plain City-Georgesville Rd., West Jefferson, using cash or credit card. Hours are 1-5 p.m. Tuesday-Friday and 12-5 p.m. Saturday-Sunday. Call the office, (614) 879-8368, from your car to make sure the lobby is not too full to assure appropriate social distancing.

Proceeds allow the Humane Society to continue to provide shelter, medical care and comfort to the many stray and surrendered dogs and cats that come through their doors.

The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted the organization’s day-to-day operations, fundraising efforts, and ability to serve the community. Organizers appreciate the public’s support during this time.
