EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WLAX/WEUX) – The Eau Claire County Humane Association kicks off their first-ever online auction today, in of what would have been their annual holiday craft and bake sale.
Sit, Stay at Home Auction it’s called, allowing people to bid on an array of items online, all donated by local businesses.
The Humane Associations Development Director Kali Foster says all the proceeds go directly back to helping provide for their furry friends amid the pandemic.
Foster said, “There are just as many animals that we’re caring for and they all need love and care and supplies and medical attention so this is absolutely important for us to be able to operate and to keep caring for those animals.”
Foster says you can also purchase ‘Santa-paws’ which are Christmas ornaments hand made by volunteers which help fund everything from pet toys to vet bills for the animals.
The auction runs through this Sunday and you can register online through their website.
