*We cannot be responsible for loss or damage to any items following the porch drop off.

Unfortunately, many people do not pick up their items and have an expectation that we will hold their item for them for more than a few weeks outside of the scheduled options. We won’t because this is a nightmare for us. Communication is key, so email us if there is an issue and we will try to resolve it.

3) Mail-Out

This is an option for easy to pack and mail items but all costs are at the expense of the winner. DO NOT WAIT TO SEND IN YOUR PAYMENT. If you win and want an item mailed, please add extra mailing funds to the transfer and let us know you have done so. Should the mail out cost more, we will let you know. If it is less we promise it will go to a pooch in need. Please email us at to indicate your address and the extra funds you have sent. If you would like insurance on the package, please specify that as well. Please post under any of your winning tagged post on FB and email us by July 23rd at 10am please with your details.

4) Pick up from a SWM volunteer

Should you have pre-approved a pick up with a SWM volunteer, please let us know who we will be picking up the item for you.

Of special note: If you pay, but do not make arrangements within the listed options, and do not contact us to make other arrangements before Aug 1st, ownership of the item transfers back to us and payment will not be refunded. So please communicate with us as we truly do not want to keep your item, but we also cannot feasibly store items long-term either 
We know this seems like a lot of details to consider, but we promise it is all for good reason! Please join us in thanking all our donors and volunteers who made this possible.
