Online Auction 2023

Thanks for considering participating in our 16th Annual ‘JUST IN TIME FOR XMAS’ Online Auction.

A HUGE heartfelt thank you is extended to everyone who has generously donated items to help us raise much-needed funds for Animals in need of our BHRR programs. We could not do what we do without all of the wonderful people who support us, making what I call the ‘chain of success’ so strong!

  • When bidding, YOU MUST include your first and last name, email, plus a phone number that you can be reached at if necessary.

  • All bids are considered final and binding; please do not bid if you do not intend to follow through on payment. Also, please do not bid on behalf of anyone else without their explicit written permission. The owner of the email will be considered the bidder and responsible/accountable for the bid/payment should their email be the winning bid on any given item.

  • NOTE PLEASE read the item description details. NOT all items will be shipped and will need to be picked up at a specific location, and winners will be put in touch with the donator to make arrangements. PAY close attention to the areas – it could be Kanata, Toronto, Oxford Station, etc.
  • SOME items can be shipped at your expense unless otherwise specified on the auction item as s/h not available or as being ‘donated’.
  • FULL payment is required within 72 hours of being notified by Gwen(not the auto auction email) of being the winner of any bid item(s).

  • Should you default on not honouring your bid(which really affects the animals the most), the next person with the highest bid shall be offered the item as the winner.
  • There are NO Returns or Exchanges, and BHRR is not responsible for the condition of any item upon receipt to the winner(s).
  • Once again: Please NOTE description details for the location(s) for pick-up!
