Other ways to get involved


Paw Parties

Is your pet’s birthday or adoption day coming up? Celebrate their special day and help change the lives of homeless pets by hosting a Paw Party fundraiser!

It’s super quick and easy to set up your online fundraising page, personalise it with your pet’s story, and share with family and friends.

Best of all, every dollar you raise will go directly to helping dogs and cats at our shelters, while they patiently wait for their very own adoption day.

Create a fundraising event online

You and your friends, family, team mates or colleagues can support lost and abandoned dogs and cats by hosting or participating in a fundraising event.

You could have a bake sale, sausage sizzle, organise a garage sale or participate in a challenge event like Run Melbourne or City2Sea. You might already have a special event in mind. No idea is too great or too small; every effort counts.

Funds raised for the Home will ensure our staff and volunteers can continue to provide essential care for lost and abandoned dogs and cats in need.

Head over to our online fundraising platform now to create your own fundraising page. In just minutes you can build and customise your page to share with your friends, family and fellow students, asking them to make a donation. Every donation made will be recorded on your fundraising page along with a message from your supporters.

Our family members, friends and pets bring happiness and love into our lives. So when the time comes to say goodbye, it’s natural to want to acknowledge the life of a loved one in a meaningful way.

A memorial gift to The Lost Dogs’ Home is a special way to create a lasting tribute for a loved one – it will make a real and lasting difference to dogs and cats in need and the life of your loved one will be remembered and celebrated.
