Community fundraising

As a not-for-profit organisation that receives no Government funding for our shelter animals and operations, we rely on the generous support from the community to help us continue deliver hospital and shelter care to thousands of animals every year.
Fundraising is a fun and rewarding way for individuals, schools, businesses and community groups to help our animals and support our organisation.

If you are interested in fundraising for our animals, why not start today!
