Digs for Dogs Ends 8/21!
Last chance to place your silent auction bid in our Digs for Dogs Doghouse Silent Auction to benefit the Puppy Jake Foundation!
The Digs for Dogs silent auction is an opportunity for organizations to reach out and help others. Most are non-profit organizations donating their time and resources to make these houses. Because of that, this year any non-profit group donating a house has the option to receive back half of the money that is raised on their donated house or houses. Participants include:
Studio 17 & Mitchellville Police Department
Pleasant Hill Lions Club (donated two houses)
Des Moines Firefighters Association
Veterans from the Cedar Rapids Chapter of Community of Artists and HERO (donated three houses)
Sons of the American Legion, Post 96
Des Moines County Chapter of the National Wild Turkey Federation
This year’s doghouses range from big to small, and fancy to functional...there is a theme for every discerning doggy. The public may view the houses and place silent bids through 8/21 at the store. Winners will be notified on August 22.
