Because people can only eat so much popcorn or have so many t-shirts! We see so many of the same fundraisers being done by animal groups we decided to create this list of Fundraisers for Animals that can help your organization break away from the pack with something unique that not every other group is doing. Our list is broken out into 3 fundraising areas – food fundraisers, fundraisers with products for pets and fundraisers with products for people. These lists will be updated as we find new options for your group to raise money!
For even more inspiration you can visit our Event Fundraising Guide to see some great ideas for events and view some case studies of how other organizations have implemented these events.
As we all know, people will spend a lot of money on their beloved pets! So what better way to get a little extra money for your rescue than selling products that animal owners will love to get for their pets? Whether you are looking for a dog fundraiser or cat fundraiser or any other animal fundraising opportunity we will do our best to find the most unique fundraising opportunities.
