eBay for Charity page.

 

We have over 150 items being offered in our first auction! We started everything at 99 cents, so there is something for everyone’s budget!

Please take a moment to check out the items we have being offered and place a bid or two (or three or four)!

We have a stack of USPS Priority Boxes just waiting to be stuffed full of your wins and shipped out to you the first week of December! Plenty of time to get them wrapped and put under the tree.

Be sure to check back during the week as we spread items out a little bit because we had so many! You can sort the items by “Newly Listed” to see what’s new!

Auction has started! Ends December 3

Thanksgiving food your dog shouldn’t have

Show Breeder vs. Backyard Breeder

We are often asked why someone’s pom doesn’t look a certain way, why they are so big? Not fluffy? Why they are so expensive from breeders? how come their coat is flat and silky?  Why their snout is so long? and many others…

You don’t have to pay $3,000 for a pet pom, but you should always find a reputable breeder.  “Backyard breeders” tend to care more about the dollars involved and not the health of the breed in general.  Some are well meaning in wanting to breed their beloved pet, but we discourage this as there are so many Poms in rescues and shelters all over the country.  Reputable breeders can not only show you the parents, but also tend to know the lineage back several generations of each litter they breed.

The Pomeranian Club of Central Virginia (PCCV) is a small, 501(c)(3), nonprofit based in Richmond that serves Virginia and the surrounding states. Our funding is 100% donation based and primarily provides care for our seniors and special needs rescues. These rescues tend to be with us long term because it is harder to find them fur-ever homes.

We are asking for donations of items that can be used in both an auction in December and raffle in January. Items do not need to be dog specific and can include household goods, jewelry, handmade items, gift cards, or any item that can be shipped or transported.  It doesn’t matter how big or small, we combine items into baskets for the raffle. Donations are tax deductible.

All donors will receive recognition and a link to their business (website, Etsy/Ebay/Poshmark store, Marketplace profile, etc.) on our Facebook Page and will be added to our website (PomeranianVirginia.org). Additionally, each of our clubs’ officers (and many of our members) will share your store info on their pages as well. Our reach is over 10,000 friends worldwide with a very large percentage of those being in the dog world as breeders, rescuers, agility, confirmation, and obedience participants, and just dog lovers in general.

Our auction is slated for the first week of December and the raffle is on January 12 in Fredericksburg.  We would like items to be received by Thanksgiving or Christmas respectively to allow time for preparation and marketing.

Contacting us at 804.410.4493 or via our Facebook page Messenger/Chat.

Thank you in advance for your consideration.

Slippery Floors? Arthritic Pom?

We had a Pom come into rescue that had a Femoral Head Ostectomy (FHO) in 2016.  The FHO surgery consists of removing the ball of the hip joint.   He is 8 years old and has a little arthritis in that joint.  If he slips and stretches that leg the wrong way, it strains the leg, which makes his gait less stable, which makes him more prone to slipping, which prolongs the injury and so and so on, you get the idea.

We looked around for something to help him get a better grip so he wouldn’t slip as much.  The area we live in almost everyone has wood floors, so finding him an appropriate home with carpeting has been a challenge.

These are the products we ended up with:

Dr. Buzby’s Toe Grips (in small/red)toegrips
