Seekonk Save A Pet Society Celebrates 30 Years! Annual auction raises funds for homeless animals


Seekonk, MA – Seekonk Save A Pet Society held its 30th annual auction to benefit the Seekonk Animal Shelter recently at the Ramada Inn in Seekonk and was the most successful ever!! We had a fantastic turnout of friends and supporters to help celebrate 30 years of happy and successful adoptions. We had some huge overbids on items… and we mean overbids…$5,000 on a treasure chest filled with rum and lottery tickets, $1,000 on a grooming gift certificate at Canine Corner and $250 on bird seed. And, those are just a few!
A sincere “thank you” to all of our donors, bidders, auctioneers, our Platinum sponsor - Herb Chambers Honda of Seekonk and Silver sponsor - Bank Rhode Island.
Our auction board sponsors: Ritz Dinette, North Star Chiropractic, Stop & Shop Newman Ave, El Mariachi, Minuteman Press, Dr. Ray Emerson, M.E. Durfee, J.S Hemingway and Rockland Trust. Our event contributors: Ramada Inn, Scialo’s Bakery, Quality Fruitland and Young’s Catering. Also, thank you to the local papers that help us with advertising, including The Sun Chronicle, The Seekonk Reporter and East Providence Post.
Thank you to all of our auctioneers as well as TV celebrity auctioneers, Dan Jaehnig and Mark Searles from WJAR10 and Kim Kalunian from WPRI12 for donating their time. We also want to thank everyone who participated, in any way, to help make this year’s auction our best!
We are truly grateful for your generosity and continued support! We couldn’t do it without all of you!! And, if you haven’t heard the great news, we are excited to begin the process of building a new animal shelter!
The SAVE A PET SOCIETY volunteers, Seekonk Animal Shelter staff, and of course the past, present and future furry residents of the shelter THANK YOU!
