Lexy and I have hosted each one of the following events or campaigns and can attest that they are FUN and EASY!

In-person Event Ideas
  • Photos by Donation:  solict a professional pet photographer to donate their time and talent to photograph pets. 
 Make it fun with different backdrops or dress up accessories.  This could be great any time of the year but
Holidays give it
 extra purpose
  • Bake Sale: homebake human and dog friendly treats to sell.  Make it more fun and host a contest to be named 
          "Top Dog Baker'.  Charge a small entry fee and approach local organizations to donate a prize for the winner
  • Host a "Baking's for the Dog's" party.  Attend by donation and learn how to make dog cookies and even take
          some home too
  • Host a party and invite your friends to pay a cover
  • In lieu of Birthday gifts ask for a donation to your charity of choice or a donation to your local Pet Food Bank or other charity of choice

Online Fundraising Ideas
  • Online auction.  Approach like-minded companies to donate prizes; best if donors will ship directly to winners
  • Calendar Campaign: Invite people to submit photos to win a place in a rescue themed calendar. Votes are made by inimum donation and each donated $ equals 1 vote.  Top 13 places after a set period of time wins.  Use the money raised to print calendars and donate remaining to charity.
  • Recipe or Table Book:  Similar to above, invite people to "purchase by donation" their place in the final product. All proceeds to charity.  
  • Invite companies to offer a special code for you to advertise on social media.  The code will allocate a pre-determined % of the sale to a charity of your choice.  Raises money for charity and helps vendors promote their business.
  • Work with a designer to create a fun logo or image and print TShirts or accessories for charity.  Sell at inperson events or online

For the holidays:
  • 'Gift Wrapping' service
  • Holiday themed photos
  • Craft Party: entry by donation and all supplies provided to make homemade ornaments for the tree.  Perhaps a Salt Dough Paw Print Ornament

  • Howl-ween Pumpkin Carving Contest
  • Costume Contest
  • Dog Park 'Trick or Treating'.  Host an event in your local dog park and invite people to bring their dogs for Trick or Treating by donation.  Have small booths or simply a table with a bowl full of treats to hand out. Perfect opportunity for a vendor donation - invite them to bring a booth with information about thier products and free samples
