Hello Frisky Supporters!


Friskys SPRING Auction Link

I am working hard on trying to prepare for the FRISKYS April Silent Auction. I have received a few donations but MANY more are needed.

We will be holding our annual April Silent Auction from April 1st - April 30th.

For all donated items, I request they be in NEW or Like NEW Condition. (Unless they are antique and expected to show wear).

I will be accepting donations up through April 22nd. However, the earlier you make your donation the easier it is to get into the auction. If you have any interest in helping me put together the auction listings please let me know. I have had several people let me know they are interested and I can't find where I wrote down their names. So please reach out again!

Here are some ideas of things that have done well in the past:

1. Most Popular Items are animal related. This includes animal care and decorations that are animal themed.

2. Cat Items. Either Cat Care or cat related decorations. We have A LOT of cat lovers!!

3. NEW or Like NEW Kids, Toys, Games.

4. Home/Kitchen Items such as NEW small appliances

5. NEW Bedding, Sheets, Blankets, etc.

6. NEW Unburned Candles and Candle related items

7. Designer Purses (e.g., Coach, Dooney & Bourke, Vera Bradley, etc.)

8. NEW Electronics

9. Jewelry (High Quality)

10. Gardening or Garden related items are also popular especially in this Spring Auction

11. Home Decor Items

12. NEW Unopened Beauty Products

13. Tools in NEW or Like NEW working condition.

14. Unique or collectible Items. I know this is vague; but one of the most interesting parts of the auction is seeing some of the unique donations!!

In the Fall Auction we added a trip auction for the first time. It was a successful experiment. If you have a vacation home and/or a timeshare and you would be willing to donate a weekend/week/?? that would be awesome. Please let me know.

As we've done in other auctions we will be putting together high quality items (NEW or Like NEW) in specific themed lots. I would love to get donations that would help put these together. The themes I want to focus on are the following:

Cat Themed or Cat Care - e.g. bed, collar, toys, treats, etc.

Dog Themed or Dog Care - e.g. bed, leash, collar, toys, treats, etc.

Wine Basket - e.g. Gift Card to Wine Cellar, Wine Glasses, Wine (all kinds)

Garden Basket - e.g. Gift Card to a Nursery, NEW Garden Tools, Kneeler, Garden Tool Holder, etc.

Donations can be dropped off at Frisky's or email me ( to get my address to do a porch drop-off. Please only use this email address for Fundraiser communication. If you have questions about the wildlife or sanctuary please email

Thank you for your continued support!!

At Friskys, we have 3 main spheres of service to animals.  Frisky's is a non-profit Wildlife Rehabilitation center located in Howard County, MD.  We take in injured, orphaned, abandoned, or displaced wildlife. If you find an injured animal in your yard or along the side of the road, you can bring it to us for rehabilitation, where the goal is to always return them back to their natural home once they are well enough or old enough.  If you are not sure how to transport an injured animal, you may call us for instructions on how to get it here safely.

We are a rescue center and home to Primates and other small exotics who have been kept as Pets and are no longer able to live with their owners.  Monkeys are not meant to be pets, but unfortunately there are brokers who continue to sell primates even though it is illegal in many states to have a monkey as a pet.  They become too difficult and demanding for most to handle and end up having to find another home. You cannot take the wild animal instincts out of a monkey. We provide a safe home with love and enrichments for those primates who end up without a home and have been imprinted by human care. These animals live the remainder of their lives at Friskys and are never adopted out.

We are sorry but Friskys NO longer accepts any domestic animals for adoptions. This includes but is not limited to: Birds, including domestic ducks and chickens, reptiles, rodents, rabbits or any other animal that can be purchased from a pet store, feed store or private person or organization.

Many hours per week are spent in telephone education and consulting.  We find many people breathe a sigh of relief once they have been coached on what to do when they have a concern about wildlife in their yard.  Sometimes an intervention is needed, sometimes it is not.  We give people peace of mind when they know that they have done everything they could to help an animal they are concerned about.
