The ACTion Programs for Animals (APA) Second Chance Thrift Store is joining forces with Mesilla Valley Estate Sales for an auction benefitting the non-profit animal rescue organization. The auction begins Thursday, July 15, and ends Thursday, July 22.
Anyone interested in bidding on items should visit their website starting the middle of July. All auction items were locally sourced from customer donations. Bidding for items will begin at 99-cents.
Many items will be available such as art, housewares, jewelry, a Yamaha golf cart, a pre-owned vehicle, and other carefully curated items.
All proceeds will benefit APA, which is a progressive animal welfare organization seeking to improve the quality of life for companion animals in Doña Ana County and greatly reduce the number of unwanted animals impounded and euthanized at the municipal shelter.
APA Executive Director Michel Meunier said fundraisers like this one allow the organization to rescue more animals in the community.
“Since May 2012, APA has rescued more than 5,000 animals, the majority of which have been dogs, cats, and kittens pulled from our municipal shelter,” said Michel. “We are able to do this through the tireless volunteer work of our rescue and foster coordinators, foster families, weekend adoptions, and fundraising events, such as this auction in partnership with Mesilla Valley Estate Sales.”
For questions regarding the auction, please call the APA Second Chance Thrift Store at 575-888-4882. For more information about Mesilla Valley Estate Sales, visit their website.
