About Our Auction
Our 4th online gift auction begins November 11th thru the 14th and we hope you'll participate! We hoped to go back to our huge, in-person auction this fall but with more restrictions coming down from the pandemic, it's not worth the risk. Our online auctions are a fun way to raise money that supports the animals at all three of our AHS shelters and our Popcorn Park Animal Refuge. The auction begins at 5pm on Nov. 11th and ends at 5pm, Nov. 14th.
The auction is simple: each item has a starting bid price. If you're interested, you bid! Increments go up by 50 cents and the highest bidder in the end, wins! PLEASE DO NOT BID IF YOU DON'T INTEND TO PAY.
Winners MUST pick up their gifts the week after the auction at AHS/Popcorn Park, 1 Humane Way, Forked River, NJ 08731. We cannot ship any gifts except for gift certificates. For more, please see "Shipping" under each item.
We're currently collecting donations of brand new items (in box or with tags) and gift certificates. Donations can be dropped off anytime or sent to: AHS/Popcorn Park Gift Auction, 1 Humane Way, Forked River, NJ 08731. Even if you don't have anything to donate, please make a donation here. Call 609-693-1900 or email: firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
