Our tips for fundraising sustainably

We’d like to invite you to fundraise with us in the most sustainable way possible, so we can protect our planet for pets and people alike. 


Please consider what recycling options you can offer at your event. And make sure bins are accessible and clearly labelled with what can – and can’t – be recycled.


As plastic is bad for the environment, and particularly for pets, we’re striving to replace all single-use plastic (such as straws, water bottles and balloons) with eco-friendly items. 


We recommend using digital invitations, handouts and tickets instead of printed ones. See our fundraising resources.

Make it reusable

Make your signage generic so it can be used time and time again for future events.

Food and drink

If you’re providing food and drink at your event, we recommend including vegan/vegetarian options. This won’t just support the climate crisis but will also make sure anyone with a meat-free diet feels welcome. Please also consider using free range and/or fairtrade products whenever possible.

Reduce waste

Think about your order quantities to keep food wastage to a minimum. Make a plan for any leftover food – can it be donated to a local homeless shelter or food bank? (Don’t forget, you can donate any leftover pet food to our pet food banks.)

Source locally

Reduce your carbon footprint by always sourcing products locally if you can. 


Encourage event attendees to car-share or use public transport if they can.


Cash has the greatest impact on the environment – switching to contactless solutions such as QR codes or contactless devices is more sustainable.

Incentives for going green

Reward your supporters for green initiatives with a personal thank you or small gesture, such as priority parking for those who car share.
