Last Minute Auction Item – Don’t Miss It
11th Annual “Raise Your Paws For Pets” Dinner & Auction

The Circle of Friends Humane Society will be hosting the 11th Annual Raise Your Paws For Pets on Thursday, April 12, 2012 at Alerus Center – Junior Ballroom.. Raise Your Paws will begin with a social hour at 6 p.m., dinner at 7 p.m., followed by a live auction. A silent auction will run throughout the evening.

We are pleased to include a surprise auction item by “Squeeky”, the pig, a resident of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary in Kanabe, Utah. The “Pig-Caso” was painted by “Squeeky.” Since the program has been discontinued, this will be the last opportunity to own an original “Pig-Caso!”

“We are indeed grateful to the community for their continuing support and recognition of our services over the years,” said Arlette Moen, executive director of the Circle of Friends Humane Society. “This event offers great food, incredible auction items and, best of all, the funds raised go directly to the care and well-being of the animals!”

Tickets for the event are $50 per person. Call 701-775-3732 for more information.
