And visitors are being offered the chance to bid on the exclusive indoor ornamental keepsakes in aid of our Covid-19 Animal Care Fund during a week-long online auction on our Facebook page, starting today until Monday, December 14.

Each rock, meticulously hand drawn with mix medium and finished with varnish, will come with a DZC branded jute bag and a certificate of authenticity, signed by Rachel, making a fabulous Christmas gift or a treat for yourself!

  • To bid, comment on the relevant photo with your highest offer.
  • The auction will finish on Monday December 14 at the time stated on each lot.

Good Luck!
