Shirley MacLaine To Sell Items To Help Homeless Dogs

The Santa Fe Animal Shelter & Humane Society is getting some help from Shirley MacLaine to hope to sell some of her clothing and more in a rummage sale to be held on Sept. 11 at the Zoe & Guido's Pet Boutique, 1441-C Paseo de Peralta, NM.

Shirley MacLaine said: If there's one thing I've learned about this recession, is that there's a lot of things I don't need. I've given a lot of things away, and I thought, why not to the local shelter? It really moves me.

So if you happen to make it to the rummage sale you just might be able to get a jacket she wore on the set of 1996's Evening Star with Jack Nicholson. Another jacket kept her warm while working with Nicolas Cage in 1994's Guarding Tess. Or how about the black full-length coat that MacLaine wore to one of Elizabeth Taylor's fundraisers for the American Foundation of AIDS Research in the 1990s.

With a sale like this hopefully the animal shelter will be able to run their business a little longer and be able to care for more homeless animals.
