This years winter raffle is our most important ever. With so many of our fundraising channels impacted by the pandemic, our raffles are now one of the best and easiest ways to help keep stray and abandoned dogs warm, safe, and healthy this winter.

This crisis has affected all of us, and many other animal organistions are struggling to cope under the financial strain. Dogs Trust want to be there to step in, and help as many dogs as we can. Amy, Johnny, Diesel and Milo are four beautiful Husky’s, who were taken in by Dogs Trust during  the pandemic when their local rescue centre couldn’t afford to care for them anymore.

We expect to see many more dogs like these over the winter months and well into next year. But you can help, even by buying 1 ticket or selling your friends and family, you can support us and ensure dogs affected by the pandemic get the help they need.

Order your raffle book today by calling the raffle ticket hotline on 020 7833 7672, or emailing [email protected] with your name, address, and number of books you would like. Each contain 30 tickets, and you can order a maximum of 3 at a time. Return all payments and ticket stubs by 31st January 2021 to:

We know times are hard, but if you can, please help us make this our best raffle yet! Every ticket helps a dog in need, and gets you a step closer to a wagtastic prize in the big draw on 10th February 2021!
