Involve Your Community
Bringing dogs and people together happens on the local level. Without local support and community involvement, our work won’t be as effective. Fundraising for AFF will spread our message and help us end discrimination for dogs and people.
Want to Keep It Simple?
Here Are Some Ideas:
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 the many ways discrimination affects dog owners.
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.
