Belmopan Humane Society auction

The Belmopan Humane Society held their 4th Annual Valentine's Cocktail Party which was a howling success! This allows them to continue to provide subsidized spay/neuter clinics, assistance and support to the residents and their pets, and help as many abandoned pets on the streets as possible. Pictured above are some of the auction donations including a Carolyn Carr Blue Slippers giclee. Kudos to Lily and Dewey for their years of dedication!!  

  The bidding for this unique offer will be conducted via email and the Auction will close at Noon (CST) on 15 March 2013. Each bid must be $100.00 BZD over the current bid. To register to participate in the Auction, send a message to the following address:
