"Happy Tails" Holiday Online Auction
The Bitter Root Humane Association (BRHA), like all businesses & non-profits, this last two years, has suffered financially from the pandemic crisis and the economy in general. Although we have kept our doors open to provide all our normal services to the community, our donations support has significantly dropped and the number of animals coming through our doors has increased.
We're hoping that our "Happy Tails" Holiday Auction will bring the spirit of the season to our friends & supporters and in turn help us to raise at least $10,000.00 of our 2023 $500,000+ annual operating budget.
Huge thanks to all our auction item donors; new items may be added up till one hour before the auction ends! We're sure with item values from $10 to priceless, you'll find the perfect gift for everyone on your holiday list...and yourself too! BIDDING OPENS November 24th, Thanksgiving evening, @ 6pm and BIDDING CLOSES November 28th, Cyber Monday, @ 6pm.

About Bitter Root Humane Association
Since 1972, (yep, that's 50 years!) we have been caring for, loving and supporting the homeless animals and pets of the Bitterroot Valley and beyond. We are the only "open admission" shelter in Western Montana and no animal in need is turned away and we have no time limits to their stay. When people call in frantic about a lost pet...we answer. When there is a community emergency...we stand ready to help. Because there is a continuing and enduring need for the shelter...we will be here!
Our dream of a new shelter has now come true and should last many, many years into the future so we can continue to serve our community as we have for the past 49 years. Our annual operating budget of $500,000+ and our current Capital Campaign to pay-off our new shelter mortgage is funded strictly through generous donations without any ongoing taxpayer funding. We hope you will join us in showing your support for our mission by participating in our "Happy Tails" Holiday Auction...without you, we couldn't do what we do!
Thank You for Your Support!
