The community has again banded together to make the Paws of Hope Garage Sale a resounding success, Prince Albert SPCA marking and events manager Nancy Kennedy said.

 

Midway into the fist of three days of garage sale, Kennedy noted that from the volunteers organizing things to the countless people who dropped off donations, whatever money the event raises would be a group effort.

“We’ve been getting phone calls since December asking, ‘When’s the garage sale happening -- we’ve been saving up our stuff,’” she relayed.

“I was here at about 8:30 and there were already a whole bunch of people lined up waiting at the door, and when we opened the door (at 9 a.m.) there was a stampede.”

In addition to countless truckloads of items dropped off by members of the community, the annual sale includes a truckload of brand new tools and various other home renovation items courtesy of Econo Lumber.

Packed with kitchen items, books, records, CDs, electronics, tools, bicycles and various other odds and ends, the Archie Anderson Pavilion at the Prince Albert Exhibition Grounds will continue to host the annual garage sale on Friday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Saturday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Last year’s event raised a record-setting $20,000 toward the Prince Albert SPCA’s various efforts, Kennedy said.

“It goes towards things like medication, tagging, vaccinations -- just daily operations as well as animal cruelty investigations.”
