Do the purses in your closet no longer bring you joy?  Then donate them to the Humane Society of Summit County during its annual "Purses for Pooches" campaign.

The HSSC hopes to raise funds by selling the donated purses at the new Happy Tails Thrift Store and attract new buyers to the store.

In past Purses for Pooches sales, HSSC received more than 600 handbags that included such high-end designers as Chloe, Nancy Gonzalez, Coach, Dooney and Bourke, Kate Spade, Brahmin and Calvin Klein. HSSC also received nice lower priced handbags for everyday use. The Purses for Pooches Sale will begin March 25, 5-7 p.m., with a VIP $10 access sale. Purses will then be available for sale during normal Thrift Store hours.

For questions, contact Susan Terrano at thriftshop@summithumane.org. All donations to the Humane Society of Summit County are tax deductible.
