Dear readers, I want to remind everyone to come to our fabulous garage sale on Friday, April 26, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and Saturday, April 27 from 8 a.m. to noon. We will be in the Oasis Church, 1520 S. Maine St.

We are still accepting items so clear out your garage, storage shed or basement and bring them to the Oasis Church on Thursday, April 25 from 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Call 775-423-7500 for details.

The CAPS garage sale is one of our main fundraising events. As you probably know, we are a non-profit organization and we need our community to come together and help us make it a big success. Something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue no matter what you are looking for I’m sure you will find a treasure to take home.

We will have many wonderful items for sale including antiques and furniture. This is your chance to find something delightful for a bargain price. If we don’t have it, you don’t need it! Our prices cannot be beat and I hope to see you there!

On another note, a new resident to Fallon recently asked me what exactly CAPS was and how they could help sustain our no-kill shelter. I explained the 38-year history of CAPS and how our wonderful community has supported our efforts through volunteering, donating, and attending events.

CAPS operates primarily through fund raising, donations, and volunteers. While we do receive some funding from Churchill County and the City of Fallon, our major source of income comes from the fundraising activities that we sponsor throughout the year and donations from the public. Any amount is helpful and you can donate directly to CAPS on Facebook by just hitting the donate button.

How can you help CAPS? We are always looking for volunteers. Right now, we need board members, dog walkers, and donors. Another way to help is to be present at our events. After the garage sale, our next big event is Bark in the Park on June 8. Mark your calendar now and plan on bringing your BFF for the 5K walk/run.

Of course, there will be booths, food, contests, and raffles. Would you like a booth for your endeavors? Call 775-423-7500.
