Fundraising in community groups

Support from local community groups means so much to us here at Birmingham Dogs Home. Whether you run a scouts or guides group, WI or special hobbies group or are a member of a local church, we have lots of ideas to help you to fundraise to help local dogs in need.

Please contact us if you would like a fundraising ideas pack, a collection tin or if you would like us to give a talk to your group. We are also happy to arrange visits and tours.

We look forward to hearing from you, we really appreciate your ‘supawt’.
