With fundraising, the sky really is the limit. Anything from a sponsored skydive to shopping via a fundraising site, there is something that everyone can do to help out and make such a difference to each and every single one of our rescue dogs, the places where they come from and the families they go to.

Here are a few ideas, but if you already something else in mind let us know!


With the current covid-19 crisis ALL of our ways of raising funds for our rescues has sadly had to stop for the foreseeable future. We have had to stop fundraising collections, puppy play, our new businesses The Dog Hub and Happy Paws Spa have both had to shut their doors, we can't even accept change jars or collect tins from shops and pubs. Most devastatingly we have even had to halt adoptions.


This is a huge blow for us and we are extremely concerned about what will happen this month and next. These dogs rely on us to look after them and we rely on all of you to keep the roof over their heads. So for the love of all our rescue dogs that rely on us, please give what you can.

Join our Monthly Direct Debit Donation Scheme You can give as little as £1 per month, sign up using the button below!

Easy Fundraising

The Easy Fundraising site allows you to shop online as normal at just about every major online store, and makes the retailer donate a percentage of what you spend to your favourite charity (Oakwood Dog Rescue!)

It is easy to register and just search for your usual online shops using the search bar, click the link which directs you to the store and continue shopping as normal. It costs you nothing more than you would normally spend, and donates funds to us!

Example image

Amazon Smile

When first visiting, you will be prompted to select a charitable organisation. Amazon will give 0.5% of the net purchase price (excluding VAT and other shipping fees) of eligible AmazonSmile purchases to Oakwood Dog Rescue if you select us. It all works exactly the same as the normal amazon site but this way we get a percentage donated to us without any cost to you!
