This is your opportunity to show some love to homeless pets and change their lives for the better.

Every dollar mattersWhat Can $5 Do For a Homeless Pet? A LOT!

Are you passionate about helping homeless pets, but unsure how to go about asking people to sponsor your efforts? You are not alone, but the more you do it, the more comfortable you'll get. 

Here's the best part: Anyone in your life who loves animals, will appreciate this opportunity to help!

You can be a successful fundraiser for homeless pets by asking people you know to support what you believe in. Just a little bit of money from a handful of people can really add up! 

Ask each of your friends or family members for $5 or $10 each and very quickly you become a powerful fundraiser for the animals.


Walk with us to raise funds for homeless pets. Here are some easy tips: 

Just ask! ♥ 
A lot of people are afraid to ask their friends and family for support. As it turns out, most people are more than willing to help! Remember, when you ask someone to donate to your fundraising campaign, you are giving them an opportunity to do something good for homeless pets, so just ask!

Start now
The earlier you begin fundraising, the more successful you’ll be! 

Donate To Your Own Efforts
Start by giving a gift to your own goal – making your own contribution, then ask friends and family to match your donation.

Customize Your Personal Page
Share your passion with your supporters! Upload a photo of yourself or your team, write a little bit about your mission and reason for walking, and create a fundraising goal. You can be an advocate by writing your personal story -- why your pet means something to you, why this cause is close to your heart, and then let all your friends, family and coworkers know that you have this web page with your personal story and ask them for donations to sponsor you in the walk. 

Send Emails
In your Participant Center (you will receive a link after you register), you can upload your contacts and send pre-written emails, or create your own.

Share your progress
Regularly send messages and share your fundraising link on social media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram) and keep everyone updated on your progress. On Facebook, tag the people who donate to your cause and thank them for their donations.

Does Your Company Offer Matching Gifts?
Use corporate matches to double your donation- Ask your company to match the amount of pledges your receive from co-workers, or ask a friend to have their company match their pledge.
