Many of our local nonprofits have had to work on the fly to pivot and get creative in order to continue generating enough funding to keep their doors open and their operations going and Warrick Humane Society is no exception.

In fact, you may remember when I shared that Warrick Humane Society had launched an Etsy Shop where they sell everything from masks and tee shirts to hats and wine cups. They are doing everything that they can to generate the money needed to maintain the day to day operations of the rescue. And starting Monday, March 8, 2012 they will be hosting a week-long, online silent auction.

The silent auction will be held on Facebook and bids can be placed by commenting the dollar amount of your bid on the photo of the item you'd like to win. There is a minimum bid increase of $1. Warrick Humane Society offers this tip,
