Spring Sale

Island Cat’s annual spring sale features a large selection of plants, jewelry for any budget, art/art objects, and handmade items from our Crafts for Cats crew. The two-day event is a purr-fect opportunity to pick up garden items and Mother’s Day gifts. For 2024, the event is moving to a new indoor venue and will also include a limited silent auction and raffle.

Annual Auction

The annual auction is Island Cat’s biggest fundraiser of the year. Island Cat volunteers and family of supporters historically gathered in person every year for a fun evening of refreshments, entertainment, and the chance to bid on a large selection of auction items. The auction moved online in recent years but continues to include artwork, handmade one-of-a-kind items, gift certificates, jewelry, wine, and other unique items. The online auction is currently held in the fall.

Jewelry Sale

Island Cat features an array of jewelry in its booth at the annual Harbor
Bay Isle Community Garage Sale. The event is typically held in August
and we are always accepting donations of new and old jewelry.

Holiday Boutique

The annual ‘Pawliday Boutique’ has grown into a fun tradition for our supporters to get a jump on holiday shopping while supporting Island Cat’s life-saving work. The Boutique is typically held on the first weekend in December at the Elks Lodge in Alameda, including an evening preview event (paid entry) and two full days of regular public shopping hours. The Boutique features beautiful handmade crafts, gifts, decorations, entertaining supplies, baked items, art, plants, jewelry, cards, gift wrap, and much more.
