Or desired a signed piece of art from Berkeley Breathed? Your chance to bid on these items — and other celebrity pieces — begins Oct. 16, when the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) hosts an online auction featuring an assortment of celebrity memorabilia. All proceeds will support the HSUS’s work.

Some auction items include:

 • Dolly Parton’s Oscar gift bag, worth more than $20,000. 
 • Cher’s five-button jacket with a beaded collar and pockets.
 • An autographed print from “Mutts” cartoonist Patrick McDonnell.
 • An autographed book, “The Dogs of Ron Burns.”
 • A poster, autographed book and original sketch from “Bloom County” cartoonist Berkeley   Breathed.
 • An assortment of silicone wristbands created by Urban Decay Cosmetics that bear the message “How Could Anyone?” The wristbands were created to spread awareness of animal testing in the cosmetics industry. Actors who attended the 19th Annual Genesis Awards celebration wore and autographed the wristbands.
For more information about the auction, and to learn more about the auction items, visit the HSUS website.

I wonder if Dolly gave up the gift basket because now they have to pay taxes on them. Perhaps we'll see more celebs giving them away to good causes now.
