Free To Live Benefit Auction Kicks Off Fall Festivities

Free To Live Benefit Auction Kicks Off Fall FestivitiesThe Free To Live Animal Sanctuary Benefit Auction was the perfect start to this season’s events. Free To Live is the largest no-kill shelter in Oklahoma, housing around 300 cats and dogs. The shelter is located in the sprawling hills of north Edmond and the minute you arrive, you can feel the commitment and love dedicated to these animals every day.

The auction is the sanctuary’s most vital fundraising effort. There was a silent auction with rows upon rows of donated art, gift baskets, and pet products. A live auction took place later in the evening for the larger donations.

I was fortunate to meet Kaycee Chance, volunteer coordinator at Free To Live, writer at OKC Pets, and the lady behind-the-scenes at the benefit auction. She gave me a tour of the auction and a quick run-down of the mission of this life-changing shelter. You can check out the videos of the auction on our Facebook page. Just click videos and they won’t be hard to find.

Over $56,000 was raised that night, and each and every dollar will go to back to the animals. Cat food, dog food, vet bills, cat litter, and utilities certainly add up when caring for 300 cats and dogs. This auction means a second chance for many of the residents. You can follow Free To Live on Facebook and Instagram, or check out their website here.
