MD SPCA hosts online auction

Dreaming of a guided tour of the Ravens Under Armour Performance Center? Tickets to a game? A trip to Mexico? Autographed pro football helmets, jewelry, dinner out, artwork, or wine tasting parties? All of this and more can be yours, and the best part is that it all benefits the Maryland SPCA.

The Maryland SPCA’s 9th annual online auction, Shop-a-Paw-Looza, is running now through Oct. 29 and offers a variety of items and experiences including those above. There’s something for every taste and every price range, and all proceeds benefit the SPCA. Last year’s auction raised $45,000.

You can see the auction catalog and place your bid at mdspca.org/shop2013. The shelter is still accepting donations, too, and is in need of things such as gift certificates, sporting-event tickets, travel packages, artwork, and pet items.

For more information or to donate, call 410.235.8826 ext. 138.
