Giving back can bring great rewards, and this is an example of just that. These cats check out the swag from a pet charity raffle. Their human bought a raffle ticket supporting the Franklin County Animal Shelter at their hugely successful mega-yard sale. We were pleased and quite shocked at how much we won. When Paws bought the ticket, the volunteer said they hadn’t sold many. I can believe that as my kitty Lenny found Prize #2 listed on one of the boxes.
We’re happy to share this event with lots of pictures on this Sunday Selfie Blog Hop hosted by The Cat on My Head.
When we found out we’d won, we expected to go to the Animal Shelter to pick up a lovely cast iron Dutch Oven.
As the Paws family loves cast iron, we were thrilled to think we had won such a lovely prize. When the shelter volunteers came up with a huge box plum full of goodies. We had no idea of what we had won, but we knew there was more than just the Dutch Oven. We almost felt a little guilty taking it all.. We were flabbergasted when we found there was more, lots more.
- A cast iron griddle
- A cast iron cupcake pan
- And a cast iron bucket full of napkins and a picnic table cover
- An oven mitt & mixing spoon
We couldn’t even imagine what the price tag would have been for all this. The Dutch Oven would easily have sold for around $70.00. And we gave $5.00 for a raffle ticket.
Cats check out swag from pet charity raffle
The cats were all quite surprised too, and they take a few Selfies for today’s Sunday Selfie with all the swag.
At the Paws household, we try to support fund-raising events for animals, but this annual Mega-yard sale is one of our favorite. We find great deals and help the homeless cats.
We thank the Franklin County Animal Shelter for making all this possible, and putting on such an awesome Mega-Yard Sale. We also thank them for all the work they do helping the cats and dogs of Franklin County.
What’s the most awesome thing you have ever won from supporting your local pet rescue or local charity? Please weigh in on this Sunday Selfie and share your thoughts.
