Dogs Trust

COVID-19 info: Our rehoming centres are currently closed to the public but you can still adopt some of our dogs: take a look at their profiles to see which ones. We’ve set up a new rehoming process which includes social distancing measures to help keep staff and adopters safe.

Fundraising raffles

Win some bloomin’ great prizes in our Spring Raffle!

Congratulations to all our winners of the Dogs Trust Spring Raffle! The big draw took place on 10th June 2020 We’d like to give a HUGE thank you to everyone for taking part this Spring, especially during such difficult times. With so many of our fundraising activities affected this year, our raffle has been even more important to help us raise the vital funds we need, and we’ve been overwhelmed by the support we’ve received.

 

Even if you didn’t win a prize this time around, you did make an incredible gift to stray and abandoned dogs across the UK who need our help. There will be another chance to play when our Winter Raffle opens in October!

Proceeds

In 2018, 79.8% of Dogs Trust raffle proceeds (50.2% from raffle ticket sales and 29.6% from raffle donations) were attributable to our charitable activities. This includes caring for almost 13,000 dogs a year, the running costs of our 21 rehoming centres and our campaign work such as education, neutering, and microchipping. The remaining proceeds accounted for the running costs and governance of the raffle, including raffle prizes and ticket production.
