People ask all the time, “How can I raise money and support Abandoned Pet Rescue?” So, we have put together a list of ideas you can try. But if you do, let us know you’re going to do it in advance so we can help promote your efforts. Just write to us at email@example.com.
Host a dog wash – Post fliers in the community for a dog wash to support APR. Decide on suggested donation amounts and enlist the help of your friends and family to give neighborhood dogs a bath.
Organize a dog race or walk – A fun event for canines and humans alike, a doggie dash is a way to get some exercise and participate in some friendly competition. Set a short course route—usually one to two miles is appropriate. Celebrate the winning teams and donate any proceeds to help rescue animals. Get your homeowners association or neighborhood association to spearhead the effort.
Have fun with a pet photo contest – Great for both cats and dogs, a pet photo contest is an effective way to raise awareness for your fundraiser. You can host the contest on social media. Increase the sharing potential of your contest—and fundraiser—by allowing the public to vote for their favorite photo.
Run a community bake sale – Involve a local school, community center, or religious organization to sponsor a bake sale with proceeds benefiting APR. Include treats for pets, and make sure ingredients are listed for all baked goods in case of allergies.
Share on social media – Sharing on social platforms is among the top fundraising tips to ensure a successful fundraiser. Generate momentum for your fundraiser through social media, and encourage others to spread the word about your cause. Tell the story APR story and let your audience know why your mission is so important. Include a clear call to action and link to your fundraiser at the end of every social media post.
Donating time or money to help shelters like Abandoned Pet Rescue is a cause worth celebrating. But again, let us know if you plan an effort so we can help you promote it. Just write to use at firstname.lastname@example.org
