Our Favourite Fundraising Days

There are lots of occasions throughout the year that make for perfect fundraising opportunities for a good cause.

Some examples include timing fundraising to a special day like International Dog Day or specific week, such as National Volunteer Week (usually in May) or World Occupational Therapy Week (usually in October).

Or why not celebrate during Dogtober? Click here to find out more.

You can also pick a local event based on your location, such as the CitytoSurf in Sydney.

Your generosity will help to fund the specialised training sessions that make Assistance Dogs the highly skilled and well-behaved service dogs you see at the shops, or on public transport.
