Valdosta - A South Georgia humane society is raising money for a good cause.

The Valdosta-Lowndes County Humane Society is holding its annual Paws for a Cause silent auction Saturday. More than 200 items are up for the bidding, everything from gift baskets to home furnishings and even Atlanta Braves tickets.

All the proceeds will go to spay and neuter programs. "Almost 6,000 animals were euthanized last year at the Lowndes County animal shelter, and all that was wrong with a good 90 to 98 percent of them was that they were homeless," said Cheryl Hatcher, Humane Society President.

Last year's event raised about $18,000.00.

The auction starts at 7:00 Saturday night at the Valdosta-Lowndes County Conference Center. Tickets are $15.00 each.
