It's time to sign up for
Cause For Paws 2014.
For the past 30 years, the Humane Society’s annual Cause for Paws auction
has been the “must do” charity event on Indian River County’s calendar.
And our 2014
event promises to be the best ever! The festivities will take place on March 24 at «The Mooring Club»
with an auction that promises to be the talk of the town.
Reach Into The Pot O' Gold and Claim Your Lucky Adoption Price.
March is a marvelous time
adopting a feline friend and, with a little luck, your adoption fee could be $0.
All month, when you adopt a cat, you'll get to reach into our "Pot O' Gold"
and select a coin which reveals how much you'll pay for adoption fees — anywhere
between $0 and $40.
All cats adopted from our Shelter have been spayed/neutered, given all
age-appropriate vaccines, received a microchip, and more.

to remind you of this March adoption event. Then, join us for the fun and make
room for a furry feline
to join your family now.

“This year," according to Tim Swift, the Humane Society’s Director of Development, “we'll
have an incredible array of auction items available through both a silent
auction and an exciting live auction. For those who join us, you'll get to bid
on trips, cruises, catered dinners, art, jewelry, and antiques. It
is really exciting.” (You can download a list of a few of the featured

in 2014, Cause for Paws features the use of BidPal, a wireless personal bidding system that
allowed our guests to bid on and keep track of their favorite the silent auction items from anywhere in the room without ever leaving their table or interrupting a conversation! It
has been a tremendous hit in previous auctions and we were the first charity to use this system in Indian River County.
Monday, March 24, the festivities began with cocktail and a silent
auction at 6:00 followed by dinner and a live auction starting at 7:00.
Tickets sre $200 per person. Some may decide to be even more generous as a
"Honey Bunny" at $500 or "Pet Patron" at $1,250 per person. Download an «invitation

Special thanks are due to our wonderful team of volunteers as well as our superb Sponsors and Underwriters named below. The success of Cause For Paws is a tribute to the efforts and energies of so many people who care for the 7,000 animals we serve each year.
In the beginning...
The first "Cause for Paws" event was founded by one of our dearest
friends and strongest supporters,
the late Jane King. It was her foresight and determination that helped
"Cause for Paws" evolve into the success it is today. The event
originally began as the "Art Auction" held in 1985 at Sea Oaks. The
event netted $5,000 for its 50 pieces of framed art which benefited the
Humane Society of Vero Beach & Indian River County. The success of this event today is a tribute to her vision and the incredible efforts of a devoted team of volunteers!
