  • I saw that you have a puppy for auction this year, do I need to do something special to bid on the puppy? We have a miniature Shitzu male puppy being auctioned this year. This puppy will be approximately 9 weeks old on the day of the event and will only be about 6 lbs fully grown. We will be giving away doggie paddles that say “I understand that by bidding on this puppy that I may win and will be responsible for the care of this animal for its lifetime. I agree that I am prepared to take ownership of an animal and am capable of providing all basic needs, care, expenses, etc. that come with owning a pet. I agree that if I were to win I will be taking this puppy home with me directly after the event and will be responsible for his safety and wellbeing.” If you are interested in bidding on the puppy click here to make sure you get a puppy paddleboard!
