We are giving people who cannot attend PetFest in person a chance to bid on a select number of items. It is not practical for us to include everything as we have over 60 items.

At the end of the online auction it will transition to the live event on Sunday, June 26. Each item will reflect the current bid showing for the online item. If you think you might be outbid, we suggest you use the PROXY bidding feature and the admin will bid for you at the live event. You will be sent an email if you won the item. The winner has 48 hours to respond/ pay. If we do not hear back, the next highest bidder will be contacted.

Share the link with your family and friends. The auction is open to everyone, not just local people, although some items may have restrictions as to where they can be used. The item description will contain the limitations.

Each person who places a bid will receive 1 door prize entry. You do not need to be present to win. There are 2 door prize drawings worth over $60 each.

JOIN US AT THE LIVE EVENT FOR THE FUN, RAFFLES AND LOTS MORE ITEMS. Bring your dog for contests. We have a special Silent Auction for KIDS.


You must register with the auction site in order to bid. You can review the items before registering. You will receive emails when you submit a bid, when you are outbid, and if you win. Check your spam or junk folder if you are not getting emails or add to your address book.

There are two types of bids:

A proxy bid allows you to enter the maximum amount you're willing to spend with the goal of winning the item at the lowest possible price. The system will bid for you, up to your maximum proxy bid amount, as additional bids are entered on the item. Your maximum proxy bid amount is never exposed to anyone other than you and the administrator during the online auction. When the auction closes it will transition to the in-person event at PetFest. The administrator will bid for you at the live event - again up to your proxy amount.

An exact bid is the amount you want the item's current selling price to immediately jump to. Your bid amount will not change as additional bids are entered on the item. If someone outbids you at the live auction you will lose. Therefore, a proxy bid might be more practical.

If you're unable to enter a bid at all, the auction hasn't started yet. Verify the dates of your auction by checking the main auction page. Double check the start date/time (including AM/PM) as well as the selected time zone.


The winning bidder will receive a notification and a link for payment after the live event concludes. You should receive notification by Monday June 27. If not, contact [email protected]. You can pay with major credit cards or PayPal. You also have the option of paying by check or cash in person if picking up an item. If you are going to pay by cash or check, select return to Auction instead of going to a payment method. If shipping is requested, your item will not be shipped until payment is received.
