MEDFORD, Ore. – A local animal shelter said it’s holding its largest event of the year online. Southern Oregon Humane Society hosts an annual auction to raise money for the animals under its care. It’s called A Toast for Tails. The organization says the yearly auction accounts for 25% of its annual budget. The event moved online this year as a result of the pandemic.
“People here, the generosity, the love they have for animals – it means the world to us. We’re very dedicated to what we do here and know that people are behind us and what we do, it means the world to us,” reiterated Karen Evens, the Executive Director of Southern Oregon Humane Society.
The silent auction began Tuesday and will run until Saturday at 7 p.m. Evens says the auction for larger, higher priced items is on Saturday from 12 p.m. to 10 p.m.
