While we’re going to once again miss seeing you in person at beautiful Alum Creek State Park, we’re grateful that we’re able to host a fun virtual event to help save the sick and injured shelter dogs
Friends of the Shelter is an all-volunteer, 501c3 non-profit that funds the medical care for sick and injured dogs at the Franklin County Dog Shelter and Adoption Center. Each year, our volunteers organize events to raise the money for this care, which exceeded $200,000 last year. While the pandemic has made it much more difficult for all charities—including Friends of the Shelter—to fundraise, it hasn’t stopped the need.

You’ll see photos and descriptions below of the great auction and raffle items. As we did previously for our other events like PupArt and Purses and Pearls, we’re using mobile bidding with ClickBid. Register to bid now, so you'll be ready to bid when the auction starts. Please note that if you set up an account for a previous event, your account should still be active (including the bidder number), but you may need to re-enter your credit card information.
The opening bid is listed on the item. You can place a bid or you can set a maximum bid so that the auction software will bid for you throughout the week up to your maximum bid. You’ll receive notifications when you’ve been outbid, and you can increase your bid if you wish.
Thank you all for your donations! Your support for the shelter dogs has been amazing! Since all of the items were donated, we can’t confirm the authenticity of the items.
When the auction ends, you can either check out yourself or we will run the credit card you used for registration for any unpaid items later that day or the next day. If you check out yourself, you can choose to use the credit card you used for registration or another online payment option—Apple Pay, Venmo (mobile only), or PayPal.
We will be in touch with you after the event to arrange for contactless pick-up or drop-off. Shipping is available! We can ship most of the items, if desired, at your cost.
Thank you again for supporting Friends of the Shelter and helping fund the medical care of the shelter dogs.
