Involve Your Community
Fighting breed-specific legislation and other forms of canine discrimination happens on the local level. Whether you want to support our educational efforts, help people with disabilities through our service dog program, or help us train shelter dogs as K9s, fundraising for us will bring your community together and protect dogs and families.
Third-party fundraisers are the perfect way for individuals and small businesses to participate in our mission.
Check out some of our ideas below.

Think Beyond the Bake Sale
Hook up with your local brewery or winery to create a Barks and Beers or Wags and Winos event. Have a small suggested donation door fee and work with the restaurant to get them to donate a portion of the food and drink profits. (These events are even better if the place has a dog-friendly patio!)
Rent out a movie theater and sell tickets for more than the retail value. Donate the difference to AFF. Extra points if you host a talkback before or after the film to discuss removing breed labels or breed-specific legislation. (Looking for a movie to watch? Sign up for a special viewing of Sgt. Stubby: an American Hero)
Include us in your celebrations by asking guests at your birthday, wedding, or any other special day to make a donation to help secure the equal treatment of all dogs.
