“People have been saying Nebraska is now the ‘puppy wagon’ state.”
LINCOLN, Neb. (KLKN) – If you don’t know what the ‘puppy car’ is in. is Nebraska Humane Society. You will now! It has just earned some pretty high recognition.
For those who haven’t seen the cute pictures and videos, it’s a cart full of puppies at the Nebraska Humane Society. They use it to transport the fur babies for sanitary purposes.
Well, one employee started posting pictures of the ‘puppy cart’ on social media and it started from there.
Last weekend, the Nebraska Humane Society hosted their Dining with Dogs event in Omaha, which included a silent auction. One of the items was a pair of Husker Football season tickets. And one more offer, an hour on the Nebraska Humane Society’s puppy cart.
Guess who raised more money?
Yes, the ‘puppy cart’ was $ 2,900!
“I used to think the puppy cart started at $ 300 and the Husker tickets probably started at $ 600,” said Steven Elonich, digital marketing manager for the Nebraska Humane Society. “At the end of the night I started scrolling through and checking, the ‘Puppy Cart’ was $ 2,900 and I was like, ‘Oh my god’.”
The Husker tickets weren’t far behind, they were auctioned for $ 1,150.
The ‘Puppy Car’ has received so much attention that merchandise is now available. If you are interested, visit their website: https://www.bonfire.com/store/nebraska-humane-society/.
