Save A Homeless Pet...

One Animal At A Time

As you are reading this, young, healthy animals are being euthanized simply because there are not enough homes for them all. The pet over-population crisis we are currently experiencing is a direct result of animals that have been left un-spayed and un-neutered.

Animal Aid Foundation is committed to reducing animal overpopulation. The Foundation does not have paid staff -- 100% of your donation goes directly to spay/neuter veterinary medical procedures. And we do not receive government funding. We rely on your donations to help us fund the spay/neuter programs of local animal charities.

Help us reduce the number of unwanted pets by making a donation today. Just click on the Donate Now button below to make your donation. On behalf of the animals, thank you for your support.

Our Mission

Our mission is to address the issue of animal overpopulation and homeless animals by financially supporting the projects and activities of local animal charities.

Events

We hold community special events year-round. Join us for our next book sale, holiday fundraisers, and online auction.

How to Help

We are always looking for adult volunteers, or students interested in coordinating a fundraiser on our behalf. Visit our volunteer page or call 905-990-PETS (7387) for more info.

At the close of the auction, the highest bidder will be declared the winner as determined by the system, automatically. Only highest bidders will be contacted after the auction closes. Contact will be via e-mail. The e-mail will list your item(s) and the dollar amount owing.

All items have a starting bid and a reserve bid. Animal Aid Foundation has the right to withhold sale of an item if the reserve bid is not met.

Payment Methods and Deadline

Payment must be received within two weeks of the auction closing date (December 12, 2012) before an item can be released. If payment is not received within the allotted time period, the bidder will forfeight their right to the item(s).

Payment can be made by:

Cash

Cash will be accepted on the Auction Pick Up days.

E-mail money transfer

Payment may be sent directly from your bank account via e-mail to auction@animalaidfoundation.ca. Items will not be released until payment is received.

A cheque in the amount owing may be mail to:

Items will not be released until cheques have cleared.

Credit Card through PayPal

Payment using a credit card or transfer through PayPal may be sent to donations@animalaidfoundation.ca. Items will not be released until payment has been received.

Tax Receipts Are Available

Tax receipts will be provided should you decide to pay more for the item than the amount of your winning bid.

Example
The Retail Value of an item is $50. Your winning bid is $40, but you decide that you would like to pay full-value for the prize. Animal Aid can provide a tax receipt for $10.

Limitations

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.

Mailing/Shipping

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.

Proceeds

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.
