For the auction this year, if you have something to bring to donate, the club certainly appreciates it. We gladly accept any donation related to herps or other animals, with the following guidelines:

  • No live animals that require documentation or have obvious health problems
  • No cages or enclosures that have not been thoroughly cleaned out from previous occupants
  • Please fill out the small cards available with the item identified, the approximate retail value, and any other information that might be needed. Mark whether you would like to receive 50% of the sale price returned to you
  • Please restrict your donations to items that would be expected to bring $5 or more at auction. (smaller items tend to drag the auction out and would be better suited to being donated for our regular raffle)
