MIDDLEBURG – This year’s silent auction to benefit the Safe Animal Shelter will be online via Givesmart. It will run until Saturday, Sept. 26, at 9 p.m. The live auction will start Sept. 26 at 6 p.m. and will be played live on Facebook Live with auctioneer Senator Aaron Bean and MC Charlie Robinson.
The auction, when in person, is the organization’s largest fundraiser of the year, covering a large portion of its medical expenses. This year is no different.
This is the busiest year Safe Animal Shelter has had with currently more than 632 animals in foster or preadoption. That doesn’t include the animals already at the shelter. The cost to have them all ready for adoption will be more than $60,000.
There will be more than 300 items to bid on as well as buy instantly for the shelter.
