Taking place throughout October, Dogtober is designed to put the fun into fundraising and the Charity has come up with six, simple ideas that Top Dogs can use to help raise the vital funds needed to train dogs to make a life-changing difference to people with a range of disabilities and children with autism.
- Pupcake Sale: What’s more enticing? Puppies or cupcakes? It’s a tough one but Dogs for Good has come up with a recipe for ‘Pupcakes’ that can be used to bake up a storm and raise money at the same time.
- Welly Wednesday: There are four Wednesdays in Dogtober so it’s a great excuse to wear wellies anywhere and everywhere to raise funds … as well as eyebrows!
- Dogtober Walk: Walks in autumn are a joy and an organised Dogtober walk can bring together a whole host of two and four-legged fresh-air fans ready for a rustle through the leaves.
- Hot Dogs for Good Dogs: Plain or saucy, whose mouth doesn’t water at the thought of a Hot Dog? Get the taste buds tingling and the money jingling by holding a Dogtober Hot Dog sale.
- Go Green for Dogs for Good: Green is the Dogs for Good logo colour and this idea has no limits. Be bold and get sponsored to dye your hair green for the month of Dogtober or simply wear green socks for the day!
- Really Good Coffee Morning: Coffee mornings are a firm fundraising favourite so get the kettle on and host one at a friend’s house or go large and take over the Town Hall!
Whether it’s bringing together work colleagues, friends, family, neighbours or dog-walking groups, there’s a Dogtober event that’s sure to get tails wagging.
