Art Auc­tion to keep an­i­mals warm

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

TheFron­tier An­i­mal So­ci­ety (FAS), lo­cated in Og­den, is hold­ing its an­nual fundrais­ing auc­tion this Sun­day, Novem­ber 18th, in the Read­ing Room of the Haskell Free Li­brary, in Stanstead. The doors will open at 12:30 so peo­ple can take a look at all the items up for sale and pick up their bid­ding card. The bid­ding will be­gin at 1:00 pm.

A great place to do some Christ­mas shop­ping, the auc­tion will fea­ture art­works do­nated by sev­eral lo­cal artists, beau­ti­ful hand­made crafts and nice books. It will all be auc­tioned off by Phil De­sormeaux who does this ev­ery year for the an­i­mal shel­ter.

“This auc­tion is al­ways ex­tremely im­por­tant for us. It helps pay the ex­tra bills for the shel­ter dur­ing the win­ter,” ex­plained or­ga­nizer Mary Rol­land. This event will in­clude a re­fresh­ment ta­ble, wine and cheese.

The FAS, a per­ma­nent home to about forty dogs and cats, also ac­cepts do­na­tions of dry dog food, wet cat food, dog treats, old tow­els and blan­kets. It holds a monthly, in­ex­pen­sive spay and neuter clinic for cats and also has a few cats and dogs who are hop­ing to be adopted. If you’re look­ing for a dog or cat, check out their web­site to meet your po­ten­tial new com­pan­ion.
