Why are we having this auction?  Why do we need YOU to help?
Reason #4

auction reason 4

Did you know?
Every dog rescued must be vetted. Many of them must have spay or neuter surgery.  Vaccinations must be updated.  They must receive heartworm and flea medications.  Many, especially the seniors, need dentals and blood work.  The seniors are often long-term fosters, which means that ERU will be responsible for their care during that time, however long it may be.  Some rescues will be found to have special needs, which will incur additional vetting expense.  The funds raised by this auction will enable ERU to save more lives. 
How can you help?
 We are now calling for donations!  The cut-off for submitting your donations is Sunday, August 31, at 11:00 PM.
To submit a donation, please email the following to:
1.  A picture of the item you wish to donate
2.  A brief description of the item
3.  Starting bid - just the dollar amount, such as $10
4.  Shipping - see below for an explanation on shipping options
5.  Any additional information or details about the item that you would like to provide (such as dimensions, size, fabric content, washing instructions, if new or gently used, etc.).  This is optional.
When sending your donation emails, if you could please COPY the below album format and fill in just the "x's with your information.  This format can then be copy and pasted, and it will really save time uploading the items into the auction album.  Leave the "item" line blank.  Add any optional additional information about the item beneath the "donated by" line.  
Description:  xxxxxxx
Starting bid:  $xx
Jump bid:  $2
Shipping:  $xx
Donated by:  xxxxxxx
Shipping:  there are three shipping options, and each is determined by whether you want the winner to pay for the shipping or whether you want to donate the shipping (two options).
If you want the winner to pay for the shipping, include a flat dollar shipping amount.  The winner will pay their winning bid plus the shipping amount, and you will be reimbursed, via PayPal, for the shipping amount indicated, about a week after the close of the auction.
If you wish to donate the shipping, there are two options.
In the first option, you just note "Free Shipping".  Items with free shipping on them will often get much higher bids, because the winners know they do not also have pay for shipping.
In the second option, you will include a flat dollar shipping amount, which the winner will pay (same as above).  However, prior to being reimbursed for the shipping via PayPal, you can offer to donate the collected shipping to ERU.
Helping Paws will again be running this auction for ERU.  They are all-volunteer and 100% of the auction proceeds go to ERU.

Eskie Rescuers United American Eskimo Dog Rescue Inc. is a nation-wide, non-profit, volunteer organization that is dedicated to the rescue of American Eskimo Dogs. Since our opening in March, 2003, we have rescued, rehabilitated and rehomed over 2000 orphaned Eskies.
We are a registered 501(c)3 charity run solely on donated funds. If you can help our cause and our beloved Eskies in need, please see the "SUPPORT ERU" section in the menu to the left.
With a great history of longevity, Eskies are considered "senior" when they reach 10 years of age! We have 13 & 14 year olds available who prance with the energy of young dogs but display the grace and manners of maturity!
In rescue, our hearts are often drawn to these sweet seniors -- they've lived such a long life, that we feel they deserve to live their golden days in a loving home. Many come from shelters -- abandoned on the street or dumped there by families who do not want an old dog. Others, after a lifetime of love and caring are surrendered by owners whose own situation is deteriorating.

After a decade or more of unconditional love and loyalty, these animals should not be treated as trash by our "disposable" society. There may be health issues; many have had to overcome grooming and more serious medical issues. But our lives are much richer having known and cared for them.

Help us give these dogs the love and dignity they deserve in their golden days -- Please browse through our list of Adoptable Seniors and consider giving a forever home to one of these wonderful Eskies! If you're a "Sweet Senior" yourself, then you qualify for our Senior Program.

In honor of these wonderful animals, we will be posting senior adoption testimonials.
I have a true story of why to adopt a senior eskie! I adopted Sparkle(a senior eskie)..... She was under Deborah Guske. Sparkle might be a senior eskie but she sure doesnt act like it... she is every bit as active (and sometimes more) than my eskie that just turned 5.... And them little eyes when she looks into mine... shows nothing but love... Seniors need love just as much as our young eskies do... I am very happy that I adopted her!!! And I know she will give me unconditional love for the rest of her life and she will get the same from me!!!!
-- Sincerely, Marketta (March 13, 2007)
