The Animal Aid Foundation Online Auction is a charity fundraiser. Prizes supplied by companies are offered in good faith. Should a company or business cease operating and leave you unable to use your gift certificates, gift cards, passes, or tickets, Animal Aid will reimburse you the full amount that you paid for the item. Animal Aid will not reimburse the actual value of the prize.
Items that are not picked up in person can be shipped to you. Winning bidders are responsible for mailing/shipping costs. Mailing/Shipping is FOB Animal Aid premises. Animal Aid is not responsible for an item once it has left our premises.
Shipping costs can be avoided by picking up items on one of the two Auction Pick Up days.
All proceeds from the on-line charity auction fund spay/neuter and veterinary medical care programs of local animal charities through Animal Aid Foundation Grants. Animal Aid Foundation is a 100% volunteer-based charity. The Foundation does not have paid staff and does not receive government funding. It relies on volunteer contributions, public donations and corporate support. Learn more about Animal Aid Foundation.
