PULASKI COUNTY (WSLS 10) - The Pulaski County Humane Society's yard sales are well-known, dating back to more than 10 years ago. For the past four years, the event has been held at Pulaski County High School, but because the sales have grown so massive, the non-profit animal welfare charity group is moving the yard sale to a larger venue.

"We've already received enough donated items for the sale to fill a 30-foot trailer and two garages," said PCHS Executive Director, Candice Simmons. "We are now working on a 53-foot trailer."

Simmons says people have donated more antiques than usual this year, prompting the group to set up the antique and collectibles in a separate building.

The humane society is accepting donations of items for the sale now. Anyone wishing to donate can drop off items at the Pulaski County Animal Shelter, 80 Dublin Park Road, off Route 100 near the Dublin Police Station and post office between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. Monday through Friday and 10 a.m.  to 12 noon on Saturday through Wednesday, August 10. After that date, donations should come directly to the fairgrounds during the same times.

The yard sale will be held on Saturday, August 13 at the main building at the New River Valley Fairgrounds between 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. There will be quality items for you to buy at low prices. Admission is free to get into the Fairgrounds.

Shoppers can satisfy their hunger for great bargains an satisfy their taste buds with delicious gravy and biscuits in the morning, donated by Wal-Mart in Farilawn. During the afternoon, customers can enjoy hot dogs, chips and drinks from the hot dog stand. The group is also adding a bake sale.

All proceeds from the Gigantic Yard Sale will benefit the homeless animals at the Pulaski County Animal Shelter. This is one of the Humane Society's largest fundraisers of the year.
