eBay – Clear Your Clutter While Helping the Dogs!

Three great eBay options for you:

  • You select us as your cause, decide on your donation amount, and sell your item(s): you take photos of your items, upload, price, and ship when they sell. You’re in charge via your own eBay account. Need coaching? We have an expert volunteer who can help! Contact us and we’ll hook you up! Or,
  • Our excellent volunteer handles the details for you. You take photos of your item(s), provide a brief description, and agree to send it/them out in a timely manner with a prepaid shipping label that will be emailed to you. Everything else is taken care of for you. Or,
  • You have some great items to sell, but don’t have the time to deal with it all? Just contact us and we’ll make arrangements to get them from you and get them sold.

Got Stuff and Time?

Another option to raise some funds! Consider hosting a garage sale to benefit us (we can email you a worksheet of tips, just ask) or selling your items on craigslist. You do it when it fits your schedule! Get your friends and family to help out too!
