Bid a Dog a Bone
Friday, November 1, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM (PDT)
Broken Arrow, OK
Join us for Diamonds in the Ruff Rescue's first annual "Bid a Dog a Bone" fundraiser!
Come bid on 40+ donated items! Featured donations from: Scentsy, Tastefully Simple, 31 Bags, It Works Global, Pink Zebra, Plexus, ACE, Shakeology, Mary Kay, Avon, AND MUCH MORE!
Each donated item has a set starting ticket price, and just like any ordinary auction, the price will go up from there. Instead of using cash to bid, you will use bidding tickets. Your admission ticket grants you 20 bidding tickets. You can buy as many additonal bidding tickets as you would like for 4/$1.
When & Where
Diamonds in the Ruff Rescue, Inc
Our mission is to give a second chance to dogs whose luck has run out by providing refuge until they are placed with their new compatible companion(s).
We are a non-profit dog rescue that is just getting started. We have found 12 dogs their forever homes since April 2013. On June 9th, 2013, we became incorporated as a non-profit in the state of Oklahoma.
Our first priority right now is funding. It will cost us around $2500 in legal fees to get started as a non-profit 501(c)(3). Becoming a non-profit 501(c)(3) not only helps us, but it benefits our sponsors and members by giving them a tax deduction for their donations. If you would like more information on what the $2500 goes to, please view our Facebook notes to see the budget broken down.
Once we are legally established, we will be looking to buy a couple acres in the Tulsa area (within a 15-20 mile radius).
Until then, we will be helping shelters and other non-profit rescues find homes for their dogs in need. We will also be fostering dogs from local kill-shelters.
Want to help? We are always looking for adopters, fosters, sponsors, volunteers, donors, and educators. Each plays a very important role in savin the lives of shelter dogs.
