Aylana Luedtke makes these pens and will be selling them to raise money for WCAHS! They will be at some area businesses and we hope to get some to sell at the shelter too! Aylana is pictures with Ann, (shelter staff) her Mom Kristen and her brother Jay. What a great idea and thoughtful thing to do for the animals! Thank you Aylana!
WCAHS would like to thank Snags Sports Bar and everyone who helped make the 2016 "Critter Benefit" a huge success! Whether it was a donation, helping out or participating that day, we never could have raised the over $2,200.00 without all those involved! There were amazing items in both the silent auction and Chinese raffle! There was continuous fun with the ring toss game and lets not forget the meat raffle! Despite the rainy day, the great food and great people made it an all around great day for everyone! Thank you Nancy for doing this now for 4 years!! Your love for the animals is very clear by all you do for Washburn County Area Humane Society!
WASHBURN COUNTY AREA HUMANE SOCIETY’S
2016 “SALES FOR TAILS” THRIFT SALE
The August 5 and 6 “Sales for Tails” fundraiser for WCAHS animal shelter turned out to be a whisker-licking, tail- wagging success!
It was a great combination of shelter employees and volunteers who coordinated this annual sale. With the donations of items to sell from so many generous people and the wonderful help to load, unload and reload sale items, sort, set up, and mark, and then cashier and bag, the shelter had the best sale since this event started years ago. Thanks to those savvy shoppers who shopped 'til they dropped, the shelter profited over $3,000!
Also, not only did this effort greatly benefit the Washburn County Area Humane Society, but it will also benefit the Habitat for Humanity ReStore, which is conveniently located near the Shelter and Fairgrounds, as the left over items which were not set aside to be used for another WCAHS Shelter fundraiser, will be donated to this community charity store.
The use of the large exhibit hall these last several years at the Washburn County Fairgrounds for this thrift sale has been invaluable, and WCAHS has always appreciated working with the Fair Board to make this annual event possible each year the weekend after the Washburn County Fair.
So, when you are cleaning out, clearing out, refurbishing, redecorating, reassessing the “stuff” in your house, garage, garden shed, tool shed, barn , boat house, cottage, cabin, apartment, duplex, storage unit------well, you get it------ think of putting it all aside for the 2017 “Sales for Tails”! This is a fundraiser so well worth having and, in fact, in dog years, has been going on for at least 63 years!!! So, the shelter will again need your help with all those very valuable items you no longer need for 1 more people year!!!
WCAHS is looking to hire an individual for a permanent/part time position. Hours would rage between 24 to 32 hours a week. Must be able to work some weekends.
