Fundraising Ideas

Can you imagine how much money it costs to look after 1,500 dogs every year? We need help to look after all of the dogs that come into our care. Without donations from people like you, we would not be able to do the work we do!


Fundraising is fun!

Running our state-of-the-art Rehoming Centre costs a lot of money – heating kennels, washing bedding, providing food, training and medical attention – it all adds up. All the money given to us is spent giving our dogs excellent care as we try and find each of them a loving new home.

You can help raise the vital funds to help us look after and rehome thousands of dogs in desperate need of our help, and have a great time doing it!

You could:

  • Have a non-uniform day
  • Hold a cake sale
  • Organise a sponsored walk
  • Have a Readathon
  • Organise a sponsored silence

Things you could donate:

  • Dog toys
  • Bedding
  • Dog treats
  • Towels
  • Hotdogs in brine
  • Tinned tuna
  • Tinned dog food


When you have collected your money, ask an adult to write a cheque or postal order to 'Dogs Trust' for the total amount, and send it to us explaining what your event was. We might even feature it on our blog!
