Fundraise For Us

Start your fundraising event to raise much needed funds to save dogs lives!

Every year, hundreds of people go the extra mile and fundraise for dogs in need. How people fundraise ranges ranges from the popular, like a sponsored walk or bake sale, to the more unusual things like jumping out of a plane! Regardless of how you do it, every cent helps, just remember to have fun doing it!

If you’re looking for some fundraising inspiration, here’s a few ideas to get you started:

  • Sponsored cycle
  • Sponsored silences
  • Sponsored walk or run
  • Car boot sales
  • Bake sales
  • Shave your head!
  • Give up smoking

Your imagination is the limit!

Whatever you decide to do, just make sure to contact us. We’re here to offer advice on how to make sure event is a huge success. You can also set up an online sponsorship form at JustGiving or on Facebook

On both JustGiving and Facebook, you can create your own personal online page to make and receive donations from family, friends and colleagues - it's simple and very easy to use. All the generous donations you receive will go directly to us from your chosen platform and it’s completely free to use!

If you’ve already ran your fundraising event, you can donate here!

By going the extra mile and making the effort to run a fundraising event, you are raising vital funds which help stray and abandoned dogs across Ireland. Since opening our Rehoming Centre in 2009, dog lovers like you have rescued and rehomed over 21,000 dogs. We rely on public support to fund our work and we are entirely reliant on the generosity of amazing people like you to continue our life-saving work. Every single donation raised provides each dog that comes into our care with nutritious food, veterinary treatment, a microchip, vaccinations and most importantly, love and cuddles from our Canine Carers and eventually, when they are ready, a forever home.
