Silent Auction

A long table with silent auction items displayedOur silent auction is a critical part of the fundraising effort for Rescue Runway. Each bid you place contributes directly to the medical care and well-being of animals in our shelter, making a tangible difference in their lives. This year, we've worked hard to curate a selection that appeals to a wide range of tastes and interests.

Each item is donated by our generous supporters, who share our passion for animal care and welfare.

To help you navigate, the items are categorized by type, such as Artwork, Experiences, Goods, Services, and more. Each item has a detailed description, estimated value, starting bid amount, and a photograph to give you a good idea of what you're bidding on.

Remember, bidding isn't just about the thrill of winning an auction—it's also a fun and meaningful way to support our mission. So, ready your bidding pencil and make a bid that makes a difference!

Happy bidding!
