You're pawsome!

Thanks for stepping up to help pets in need. Here's what to do next.

Thank you!

Time to set up your JustGiving page!

Create a JustGiving fundraising page now, to kickstart your fundraising. It's easy to do and in just a few simple steps you'll be ready to tell your friends and family about your challenge.

Ask someone close to make your first donation and get the ball rolling, or donate to yourself, to inspire other people to sponsor you.

Share your JustGiving page with friends, family and colleagues to raise funds for pets in need. Use email, WhatsApp and social media to share your challenge updates and encourage people to support you with sponsorship!

Every penny you raise helps homeless pets in need

£20

Means we can give two stray dogs their essential kennel cough vaccinations when they arrive.

£50

Buys a large bag of prescription food for a pet who needs a special diet.

£100

Gives a frightened dog a full veterinary examination, allowing us to plan the care they need.

Still have questions? Here are the top ones we get:

I am afraid I won’t raise any money, what can I do?

Did you know people are more likely to give if someone else already has? Try making a small donation to yourself, to get the ball rolling.  

Remember to share your progress to encourage donations. A selfie from your walk or a screenshot of your route can help show people you’re really doing the challenge and encourage them to give.

You could even ask close friends and family to share your JustGiving page on their social media, to encourage their friends to support you too.

How can I track my steps?

You can track your steps with any step-tracking app on your smartphone. We recommend Strava because your progress will show on your JustGiving – find out how here.

You can also use the health app on your phone, a Fitbit or a simple pedometer to track your daily steps.  

Do I have to do 10,000 steps every day?

Your supporters are most willing to donate to something they know will be a challenge for you.

If 10,000 steps is not realistic, you can try doing fewer steps in the week and ‘top up’ at the weekend or set a lower number that still feels like a challenge.

If 10,000 steps is a walk in the park, try upping your target to something that will stretch you!

If you’re a wheelchair user, 10,000 steps equals around four miles. You can track distance with many fitness apps on the ‘wheelchair’ setting.
