Fundraising raffles

Dogs Trust Spring Raffle winners

Congratulations to all our winners of the Dogs Trust Spring Raffle! The big draw took place on 10th June 2021

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts and paws, to everyone who played or donated towards our Spring Raffle. With your help, we will continue to change the tale for dogs like Digger this year, and in the future. We expect many dogs and their families will need our help as life starts going back to some sort of normal, so it’s vital we keep going.

If you didn’t manage to play this raffle, never fear! You can have another shot at winning one of seven cash prizes when our Winter Raffle opens in October! Keep your eye on our pages for updates and details.

Happy dog Digger

Digger was found as a stray, which has left him really anxious of strangers and certain noises. By playing our raffle, you’re helping us to continue building his trust and confidence until he’s ready for his forever home.

Proceeds

This includes essential care for the dogs across our 21 rehoming centres, running costs, and our campaign work such as education, neutering, and microchipping. After these proceeds, 3.7% was spent on prizes, and the remaining on the running costs and governance of the raffle.
