Quilts auctioned to help homeless and abused animals


SIOUX CITY, Iowa (KTIV) - Whether made by hand, or machine-made, stitching a quilt takes time, and patience.

So, it was only fitting that these labors of love take center stage at the Sioux City Community Theatre.

That's where the Siouxland Humane Society hosted its 6th annual Quilt Auction.

From wall hangings to table runners, and baby quilts to lap quilts, over 70 quilts of all sizes were auctioned.

All of the money raised will help care for homeless and abused animals.

"You know there's something about, when you think about snuggling up on the couch with your cat or dog or whatever you have as a pet, there's just something really special about that, and they just seem to fit together," said La Von Stroh, Director of Development.

All the quilts were donated by local animal lovers.

The Siouxland Humane Society has over 3,000 animals come through its doors, each year.
