Give in celebration
Some choose to celebrate a special day or milestone by asking family and friends to make a donation on their behalf in lieu of a gift. Whether a wedding, birthday or adoptaversy, there are many celebrations that people choose to make extra special by helping pets.
There are many ways to fill your weddings or engagement parties with warm and fuzzy feels (including inviting your best furry friend to attend too!)
Surprise and delight your wedding guests with the most heartwarming wedding favour there is – a donation for animals in need!
Wedding favour wording example:
"We’ve chosen a special way to say thank you for sharing our wedding day. In lieu of a favour, a donation has been made to PetRescue to help homeless animals."
Or in the invitation, ask guests to make a donation in lieu of wedding gifts:
"We are so lucky to be celebrating our love surrounded by family and friends. In lieu of gifts, we wish to spread more love by requesting that guests make a tax-deductible donation to PetRescue."
Is not the day you adopted your furry BFF as big as any other special occasion? Spoil your beloved pet for their Adoptaversary by throwing a party and asking guests to help other pets by donating to PetRescue, or simply donate in celebration of this special day.
It’s an awesome kind of pet lover that gives up birthday gifts to help rescue pets in need. Instead of gifts, you don’t actually need, save a pet and the planet from more stuff by inviting friends and family to make a donation in celebration of your day.
Or create a Facebook fundraiser asking friends to make a donation to your chosen birthday cause.
Pepper The Westie's 10th Birthday!
Pepper’s incredibly generous pawrents and his birthday party guests raised $1,160 for rescue pets by giving donations to PetRescue in lieu of presents.
Ryan’s 6th Birthday
For the past two years, young Ryan has chosen to donate his birthday gifts to help rescue pets. Yes, that’s right - he did it for his 5th birthday too and raised $384 with his last birthday fundraiser!
We love hearing all about the wonderful ways the community comes together to help rescue pets, please leave us a message!
Every $10 you raise helps to save the life of a rescue pet that may otherwise go unnoticed. Your act of kindness gives them the best chance of finding a new home and a human to love for life.
