Fundraise or take on a Challange

Do something amazing for the dogs!

Thanks to people like you, we are able to continue our important work.

By choosing to fundraise for Dogstar Foundation, you become a part of something incredible.

Not everyone can take on a mountain or run a marathon…but by choosing something which is challenging to you, you can raise money for the dogs whilst pushing yourself to achieve something you have always dreamed of.

Whatever makes you tick, we want to help you turn it into a fantastic fundraiser! 

A good place to start is to think of something you enjoy doing or know you are particularly good at and then find a way to turn it into a fundraiser!

You can create your own fundraising page via Just Giving and choose a project to support, just click on the link to create your page.

Organise your own event

Hosting any event doesn't need to be a huge event and take up too much time and should be fun!

Hosting a coffee morning, cake sale, quiz night or any event at home, work or school with family, friends and your local community is a great way to raise awareness of the work Dogstar do whilst raising some funds.

Do you have an event in mind?

If you already know what you’d like to do to raise funds for us, then please let us know if you need support from us.

We can provide the following:

  • Collecting tin or bucket
  • Posters
  • Information leaflets
Need some inspiration?

Do you want to raise money for us but don’t know where to start? Don’t worry, as we can help!

Perhaps you hold a dog show or sponsored walk, or maybe you could hold a coffee morning or social event.

Making a gift in your will

Making a gift in your will

Giving a gift in your Will is a very special way of leaving a lasting legacy.

By leaving a gift to Dogstar Foundation in your Will, you can continue to protect animals from suffering even after you are gone.

Making a Will is straightforward and doesn't affect the rights of your family and loved ones. Leaving a gift to charity can even help your loved ones by reducing the burden of Inheritance Tax.

To a small charity like Dogstar Foundation one single legacy can make the most enormous difference to our work. The sum doesn’t have to be big to have a big impact.

Donate in Memory of a loved one or family pet

Losing a loved one or family pet is one of the most difficult experiences anyone can go through.

Many people choose to donate in memory; celebrating the life of a loved one by making a donation to a cause that transforms the lives of many.
