This is the 4th annual holiday auction to support the homeless animals of the Cedar Rapids Animal Care & Control. Some of the many exciting gifts available for auction include: Riverside and Isle Casino overnight packages for two, dozens of toys & treats pet packages from local veterinarians, boarding kennels, and obedience programs; automotive care; golf packages and family entertainment get-away; Theatre CR and Symphony tickets paired with dinner at top local restaurants; spa gift baskets; breathtaking jewelry; plus games and toys for the kids. You name it, it'll be there for you to bid on. Tickets are $25/person. Hors d'oeurves and cocktails will be served. All proceeds will support the many needs of the homeless pets of our community. The event will be held Saturday, December 14th, from 7-10 pm at the Shores Event Center. 700 16th Street NE, Suite L100. Many of the animals that come to the shelter are in need of specialized veterinary care to make them healthy and adoptable. Funds from this event will support those efforts. Funds will also help provide the animal enrichment features of the new facility that the City budget could not cover, as well as educational opportunities for staff, volunteers and the general public.
