Fundraising raffles

Dogs Trust Winter Raffle is OPEN!

Please help us ride out the harsh winter months ahead by playing our raffle – and you could find yourself the winner of huge cash prize!

We know this cold winter season is going to be tough one, but no matter what else comes our way, we promise to do everything we can to keep our centres running, and to keep stray and abandoned dogs who have found themselves without a home warm and safe. But with no government funding, we cannot do it without the support from people like you.

Our raffles are one of the very best (and fun!) ways to help dogs in need like Casper. For just £1 ticket it’s a great opportunity to get friends, family and fellow dog lovers involved, and take you a step closer to winning up to an incredible £7500! 

Casper arrived at Dogs Trust with severe allergies, and a nasty mass on his foot which had been causing him real pain and discomfort. He felt so stressed, poor lad. The vets placed him on a strict prescription diet, and tried everything they could to save his leg. Sadly there was no choice left but to amputate. It was a big decision, but it was the right one, as they knew it would drastically improve his quality of life.

Now out of pain, Casper loves nothing more than a warm snuggle on the sofa. Sadly, many dogs this winter may not have anyone to protect them from the cold, and treat their aches and pains. You can help them by ordering your raffle book today – every ticket sold makes a difference.

Not only are there seven cash prizes, we also run a special prize draw for super supporters who are able to sell 65 tickets or more!
