Join us for an Online Auction for the Animals, from October 17th to November 1st, 2020.


In lieu of our annual Benefit for the Animals, please join us virtually for an online auction benefiting the residents of the Refuge.

We’re doing things differently this year with an online auction in lieu of our in person Annual Benefit for the Animals. The auction at our Annual Benefit is typically one of our main fundraisers of the year and brings us much needed funds. We need your help as we transition to an online auction — please share, donate, and bid as you’re able. From all of us at the Refuge, we thank you for your generosity and continued support of our work!

The auction would not be possible without the generous donation of goods, services, and more from our many donors. See a list of our 2020 auction donors here.

Online Auction:

Bidding opens at 6pm EST on Saturday, October 17th and ends at 6pm EST on Sunday, November 1st. You can preview a small selection of our auction items here. We will be continuously adding more auction items so be sure to check back once the auction opens!

There will also be Fund-a-Need options, live raffles, and other exciting opportunities throughout the auction. ALL of the donations made to our Fund-a-Need and to our entire auction are being matched dollar for dollar by a generous donor! 

Honey LaBronx, the Vegan Drag Queen, will be joining us again to emcee. Honey LaBronx stars in her own YouTube cooking series, The Vegan Drag Queen, and hosts the Big Fat Vegan Radio podcast.
