What items are we looking for? German Shepherd items of course! Statues, rugs, throws, pillows, key chains, GSD notepaper, cards and paintings — just about anything goes as long as they are first quality and something that can be sold.
Dog-related items do very well and don’t need to be German Shepherd specific. We are looking for dog bowls, cookie jars, leashes, collars, dog beds – all kinds of pet products! One-half to two-thirds of the auction items are pet specific and the good news is that if we receive too many of one type of item for the auction, they can be used for other events or even for our foster dogs. But we don’t leave out people! We have seen beautiful vases, jewelry, collectible plates, and baskets of products that anyone can use. Sports memorabilia items are also very popular, as are any kind of electronics. Come and see which items raise the most this year! Here are just a few samples from the more than 300 items that successful bidders took home from our 2014 Auction.
PLEASE complete a form for each item you donate. It really, really helps us to have the completed form at hand when we are preparing our Auction Catalog and your tax deductible donation receipt. We do need a separate form for each item you donate. There are three ways to donating items to us: 1. You can bring items to the tagging party. 2. You can deliver them to one of our collection sites located throughout New England. Please email us at email@example.com for locations. 3. You can mail your items to:

Donations are accepted at any time but to ensure inclusion in this year’s auction and auction catalog, items should be received by us no later than March 16th.
