Please consider assisting with Humanimal Balkans mission of saving and enriching the lives of dogs and cats of all ages, breeds, sizes, and conditions that have suffered from neglect, cruelty, abandonment, or overpopulation in high-kill animal shelters.
We have a Facebook group, adoptions page and an auction group that constantly needs updating, as well as a twitter account and pinterest account. If you are interested in helping with any of these social media accounts we would greatly appreciate it.
Sharing our daily posts of the dogs we have available for adoption is also a great help as sometimes just one share could find a dog a home.
For example some members are involved in table top sales, asking people to donate unwanted items to sell is a great and successful way to raise funds.
There are many great ways you can do this, selling items on eBay is a great way of raising money, as well as car boot/table top sales.
You could organize a sponsored sport event like climbing, running, swimming, walking or do dog walking and fundraise for our dogs. Holding a sponsored event to raise money can be very successful. For example, one member held a sponsored pilates event and every person that entered collected money by asking people to sponsor them. Sporting events or even fun events are not only a great way to raise large donations, they are also enjoyable and people will be more encouraged to take part again.
Holding a raffle with £1 a strip of tickets is also a great idea. As it is a raffle for charity, some shops and other businesses may be willing to donate some great prizes, so it is not very costly to set up a raffle yourself. You could do a virtual raffle on social medias, like facebook.
Holding coffee mornings with friends and colleagues can raise good money too, inviting people to a morning of coffee and cake will also help to raise awareness by talking about the plight of these dogs. You could either charge a small fee for the coffee morning or ask for a small donation at the end. We have fliers available to print, these will help when doing sales etc as they can be given out or included when posting items you have sold, or left at local pet shop…
We also need volunteers to assist with adoption paperwork; for marketing, graphic design, writing grants for Humanimal Balkans.
We offer training, support and a friendly social atmosphere.
If you have an idea in mind, feel free to contact us
