Lakeshore Humane Society holds a different yard sale Saturday

The Lakeshore Humane Society will hold “Under the Big Top –Yard Sale 2020,” this year’s version of the organization’s annual yard sale on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Due to the pandemic, this year’s event will be different than the giant yard sales of past 15 years, but it still aims to be a major fundraising effort for the group that helps dogs and cats in our area be healthy and find loving homes.

This year, the site will be outdoors under tents at the Lakeshore Humane Society Adoption Center at 431 E. Chestnut Street in Dunkirk. In addition to the yard sale, there will be basket drawings; a 50-50 drawing; and hot dogs and drinks for sale beginning at 10 a.m. This will be a one day event, where masks will be required and all are asked to practice social distancing.

Please note that the LHS already has merchandise for the yard sale. Unlike past years, no donations of yard sale merchandise will be accepted. There is no drop-off of items.

Even if you aren’t able to come to this event, monetary contributions in any amount are always appreciated by the LHS, particularly during this time when many public fundraising activities have not been possible. Call 672-1991, visit the Lakeshore Humane Society on Facebook, or go to www.lakeshorehumanesociety.org for more information.
