April 27 is a very big day for Paws Across Oswego County, a local nonprofit animal rescue located in Oswego.
For its ninth year, Paws Across Oswego County is hosting its annual Open House and Rescue Fundraiser.
Paws Across Oswego County’s Open House will be from noon to 5 p.m. at Paws & Effect at 2035 County Route 1 in Oswego. Inquiries regarding event questions or donations can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event is known for bringing local animal rescues together to spread the word about animal adoption and to raise funds for their cause.
There are drawings, a silent auction, food, demonstrations, a bake sale, door prizes and more.
The silent auction includes more than $5,000 in products donated by local and nationwide businesses for the attendees to bid on. Including baskets and gift certificates, the products offered will be both human and pet related.
The drawings also have brought a lot of attention to the cause this year. Tickets are being sold for items such as a Disney Getaway, a one-year supply of Merrick Dog Food, a one-year supply of Merrick Cat Food, a one-year supply of Whole Earth Farms Dog Food and a 32 GB iPad Air.
The Disney trip includes four one-day Park Hopper Passes to Disney World and a three day-two night stay at the Buena Vista Palace Hotel in Orlando, FL.
The pet food drawings will be presented as 12 gift certificates for bags of food and have been generously provided by Merrick Pet Care.
The iPad Air is a 32 GB model that has been donated by Stella and the Merriam Barrett Guest House.
Tickets for the drawings are available for presale at Paws & Effect and will be sold the day of the event for $5 each, three tickets for $10 or 10 tickets for $20.
Lighthouse Lanes will be supplying barbecued chicken and pulled pork meals for sale. Each meal comes with two sides and will be $10 each.
There also will be small salads for vegetarians. There will be a bake sale and drinks available for purchase, as well.
