Fallston, MD (July 19, 2011) – The Humane Society of Harford County will hold an gigantic yard sale and open house on Friday, September 2 and Saturday, September 3, 2011 from 8am – 2pm both days, rain or shine. The sale will be held inside the shelter’s Pole Barn and will spill out onto the grounds of the animal shelter at 2208 Connolly Road in Fallston, MD.
Items for sale include, but are not limited to, pet supplies, holiday decorations, household items, children’s games, books and movies, electronics, furniture, small appliances, and much more. The public is asked to donate gently-used items for the sale. Clothing, computers and computer accessories, and TVs will not be accepted. Donations are tax-deductible and will be accepted at the shelter Mondays through Fridays from 11am to 6pm; Saturdays from 10am to 5pm; and Sundays from 12pm to 4pm.
“This is a very important fundraiser,” said Mary Leavens, Executive Director. “With the community’s support and the help of our volunteers, we raised $3,700 from our last sale in June. The yard sales also bring visitors here who otherwise might not visit an animal shelter.”
Don’t fret if you don’t find a treasure – take home something sweet from the bake sale. There will be a variety of cookies, brownies, cupcakes and other snacks. All proceeds benefit the homeless and neglected animals at the shelter that will all be waiting to meet you. Directions to the shelter can be found by visiting our website at www.harfordshelter.org.
