Default Pet Lover's Auction Fundraiser For Rescue

Next week we will be starting our July auction to raise money for Low Rider Dachshund Rescue of Florida. You participate online in our auction group on Facebook. Low Rider Dachshund Rescue of Florida Awesome Auctions Public Group | Facebook You can bid while at home on the couch, at the dr's office, waiting on your wife while she is shopping. LOL A big variety of items. A couple of things you might be interested in are a brand new adjustable pet ramp so your pet can get on and off the couch without jumping or assistance. Folds down flat so you can store it out of the way if you have company. Also, a Cuddle Clone which is a plush stuffed animal made to look like your pet. They not only do dogs and cats, but also horses, rats, rabbits, guinea pigs, and much more. A great gift for yourself or a loved one. What grandchild wouldn't love this?

Monies raised go toward vet bills for the dogs the rescue takes in. The rescue is a non-profit with foster homes and volunteers all over the state of Florida. Several in our area around The Villages.

If you would like to shop and bid in our auction, here is what you need to do. Note: the auction does not start until Thurs., July 11. Ends at 8 pm on July 17. Go to our Facebook auction group at Low Rider Dachshund Rescue of Florida Awesome Auctions Public Group | Facebook. Click on "Join". Once an admin. admits you to the group you will be able to comment. When the auction begins, you type your bid in the comments section. The highest bid at the end of the auction wins the item. You can win some nice items and you are helping the little dogs that for whatever reason find themselves without a home.

Thanks so much for your time. Hope you will join us. We have an auction every other month. Items change from auction to auction.

If your group accepts donations, what sort of things do you need for your auctions?

San Fran Dianne - We accept just about anything. Most popular will be items with either a dachshund or paw print on it or something a person's pet could use. We have had other items that are non-pet related in previous auctions.

Each auction is different and has a huge variety of items. We try to have small items for people who want to participate but can't afford much to higher ticket items and everything in between. Examples of a few items that I've had in auctions I have done: dachshund Christmas cards vs designer handbag by Timmy Woods of Beverly Hills (carved wooden dachshund handbag). Art prints vs framed dachshund gallery artwork. Dog blanket vs new stroller. Vintage dachshund figurine vs junk dachshund (made from bolts, nuts, etc.). Dog toys vs Cuddle Clone (custom-made animals made to look like your pet using your pet's photos).

Dachshund 1,000 piece puzzlie would be a good item. Someone recently suggested that and we haven't had one. Dog blankets do well. We have some people that love the dachshunds made out of junk. Vintage dachshund things are well received. Anything that is unique, handmade, something you won't find in the local stores, hard to get items that have dachshunds on them.
But again, just about anything.
