Browse, Pre-Bid, Max Bids and Add-Ons: Auctions will open for browsing, pre-bids, max bids, and add-ons approximately 2 hours before the auction start time. This is our best estimate, and the actual time of posting the lots may be sooner or later.
Auction Closing: Bids will begin to close as the auctioneer declares the item sold at the auction.
Add-Ons: Auction will be open for Add-Ons until July 30 @ 6PM.

Make a Bid:
- Destination Selection: Upon placing a first bid for a specific lot, you will be prompted to select a destination for the animal. If you would like to change your selection, you can do so when placing another bid. The destinations can be different for multiple animals.
