HRI - 14th Annual Online Auction!

Hi gang!

I'm happy to announce that plans are underway for the 14th annual online auction to benefit Havanese Rescue Inc! The auction will begin at 9am (Eastern time) Saturday, Nov 8th and will end at noon (Eastern) Saturday, Nov 15th. I encourage everyone to read the FAQs and contact me if you have any questions.

For those who've never participated and are wondering "who is this chick and what's the deal with this auction?” - - my Havanese are the loves of my life. Shadow, now 15, and Kidget, 14, (around whom the world turns -just ask her) were the inspiration for the first online auction in 2001. They patiently watch tv, send text messages, or snooze while "Mom" plays auctioneer on behalf of the Neezers for whom HRI works tirelessly to place in forever homes where they'll be cherished as they deserve.

What was meant as an experiment became an annual tradition which I believe was the first of its kind for our breed. Over the years, we've come together to raise over $117,000 for the sweet rescue pups; the event is a labor of love and every penny raised goes to HRI. If you've never participated, we hope you'll join us because the volunteers can't do their fabulous work without our support.

I regret having to mention that we must limit the bidding to only those folks living in the USA. We remain ever grateful for the support of our Canadian and international friends. However, the rising cost of postage, bank fees to cash checks, and often complicated rules and added expense to meet overseas packaging and shipping regulations, ultimately resulted in our losing money on some items last year. A few donors mentioned that postage had nearly doubled. I was suprised to find that shipping was so expensive, for even small and lightweight items, such as $13 to mail a sweatshirt and $9 for a lightweight tee-shirt. I hate having to disappoint, but feel that limiting the bidding to US residents will be in HRI’s best interests. I hope you'll find it in your hearts to continue supporting HRI in other ways, as you've done for many years.

Please feel free to share this announcement with family, friends, clubs and lists to which you belong - thank you so much!
