Lasqueti Animal Fund Silent Auction

Want to Showcase Your Art or advertise your Services and Help Lasqueti pets in need at the same time ?

The Lasqueti Animal Aid Fund has been providing funds, when needed, for over 20 years now, sometimes helping with Veterinary costs, spaying, neutering, paying for pet food or medicine when necessary.  They also put on an annual Vet clinic here on island for basic check ups, vaccinations and such and carry cat wormer.

It has happened a few times in recent years that they have regretfully had to refuse a request for help due to lack of funds and I want to try to help with that. The pot is almost empty and there are many more Lasqueti pets that need assistance. 

I am organizing a Silent Auction at the Arts Centre from Thursday, June 10th, 2021 until Wednesday June 23rd, 2021 in the hopes of replenishing the fund so that more animals in need can be helped. I am hoping that many of you wonderful, creative artists have been quietly making an abundance of art over this last crazy year and maybe you’re running out of wall space? Or you would like to remind the community of the services you can provide? If so, please consider donating a piece of artwork or something sellable for our auction - maybe it’s a painting, maybe its a $50 voucher for your business services, maybe it’s a Dozen eggs a week until your chickens get tired of popping them out?!

The idea is to have lots of art on the walls of the arts centre that we can go and enjoy and bid on (observing Covid precautions) and also having a variety of services and fun random items to bid on too.

Everything will have a “minimum bid” chosen by the donor and hopefully there will be lots of fun and interest, popping back to see if the bid you have placed is still in the lead or not.

For those of you who may not be able or comfortable with leaving your home, I will take virtual or phone bids and will update accordingly.
