Ideas for fun ways to raise money for our cats and dogs 

Take action and fundraise for the animals at Bath Cats and Dogs Home with your own event or collection. We rely on your enthusiasm and support to fund the care and rehoming of the hundreds of dogs and cats that come to us every year with no other place to go. 

If you need some inspiration to encourage people to give, then head to our Stories and Our impact pages to share.

Below are some details on fundraising for Celebrations, Schools, Workplace and Community groups.

Celebration fundraising

Birthdays, anniversaries and pet gotcha days
You could fundraise in celebration of your birthday, your pet's adoption anniversary or other special day. Online use your social media or set up a Just Giving page (see our Social fundraising link below for more details on those). In person, you could hold a coffee morning or tea break with friends or colleagues and ask them to make a small donation towards their cuppa and cake.

Ask friends and family to make a donation to Bath Cats & Dogs Home in place of buying a gift, or add a giving box to the tables. One lovely couple even had our adoptable animals' details on their favours! Contact us if you are planning your big day with us in mind.

Schools fundraising

Raise awareness about pet care and inspire the next generation in animal welfare. We can arrange to give a talk at your school, or we can provide information for you to share in lessons or assemblies.

To raise vital funds for abandoned and neglected animals your school can hold bake sales, make donations towards a non uniform day or organise a fête or activities. Please do contact us to share your own ideas and we will be delighted to support.

Workplace fundraising

Onesie days, bake sales, Charity Shop donation drives, or adding a collection can in reception – it can make a big difference when you work as a team. For ways that your company, group or organisation can get involved please see our Partnerships section (link below).
