Havanese Rescue Auction Announcement

Itís that time again! Our online auction will run Saturday 11/3 through Saturday 11/10, with proceeds to benefit Havanese Rescue Inc.

Now in our 7th year, I believe itís fair to say that the fall auction was the first of its kind in the Havanese community. Together we have raised nearly $39,000 to support Havanese health and rescue efforts. For those who are new to the auction, here are the details:

To donate, simply email a picture and short description of the item to me at [email protected] Iíll resize the picture, if needed. If you donít have a picture but can find the item online, send me the link and Iíll copy the picture from the website.

You do not need to disclose the value of the item unless you feel it will help the bidders decide how to start the bidding. If you want a Ďreserveí placed on the item (in other words, you wonít let the item go for less than a certain amount), let me know the reserve as well.

You keep possession of the item until the auction is over; when I receive the item winnerís payment, I will send their name and address to you so you can mail the item directly to them.

The majority of items at the auction are new, however, occasionally folks have gently used items theyíd like to donate (such as a once-worn harness, doggie sweater that didnít fit, books, etc). Those donations are very welcome, just let me know the item is used so I can note that in the description.

In past years, we have had wreaths, floral arrangements, scented candles, pillows, soap baskets, doggie wear, training videos, grooming tools, collectibles, books, calendars, ornaments, silk scarves, wickets, sherpas, crates, puppy snugglers, handmade dolls, holiday items, placemats, potholders, jewelry, teapots, food baskets, original watercolor paintings, music boxes, clocks, picture frames, sweatshirts, havanese prints, wine, tshirts and more.

You are limited only by your imagination and the ability to pack up and mail the item! For an idea as to the type of items donated last year, here is the link to the 2006 auction http://havaneseauction.homestead.com/Items1.html

To make your donation go twice as far, you might consider one of the following:

Donate a subscription to the Havanese Hotline - itís always full of fun and interesting articles, and of course, pictures, pictures, pictures! HCA will benefit, as will HRI.

Order something from Havanese Rescue Incís store at CafePress and HRI will benefit twice, once from your purchase at CafePress and again with the money your item raises at the auction: http://www.cafepress.com/hrinc .

Many local Havanese clubs sell calendars and other items, so you can support them and the auction at the same time by purchasing from them and donating the item to the auction. http://havanese.org/localclub/hcaLocal.htm

If you are not in a position to donate or bid on items this year, we can still use your help in spreading the word to family and friends and other lists you may be on.

As soon as I prepare this yearís website and folks begin sending me pics of their donations, I will share the new web address with everyone.

Please feel free to crosspost. Thanks, everyone!

Well Dora wanted to let you guys all know that some dog walked up and peed on the goody basket so you probably don't want to bid on them!!! Then the same dog walked over and chewed on the photo album!

Such a caring little Neezer my Dora is!

Wow, some great things this year. When I get home I will have to browse the auction site and place some bids. Last year I bid on several items and was lucky enough to get the First Aid Kit. It is really neat. Luckily, I haven't had to use it!

Laura, those were great suggestions for donations. Thanks!

Michele,
That is a good idea! Last year, I gave more than I got but this year, I hope that changes <BG> I think Dora and I still need to find some more of her favorite toys. You can donate anything... doesn't have to be havanese related. I am not that creative but Dora tends to have good taste in toys and they do well at auction!
