House of Hope Animal Rescue 6th Annual Paws in the Park Fundraiser

Personalize your Walk page and promote!


  • As a registered participant, you get your very own web page. Add photos of you and your dog and tell why House of Hope Animal Rescue is important to you.
  • Let your friends and family know that this website is fast, easy, and secure. It's as simple as going to your page and clicking the DONATE button!



After you’ve registered and built your personal fundraising page, it’s time to begin gathering donations and pledges. People love to support charitable causes, especially when they know how much House of Hope Animal Rescue means to you.


For some supporters, it’s difficult to ask friends, family, and acquaintances for financial support. Start with people you know will be willing to support you and use these experiences and successes to build momentum. It’s always easier to hear a “no” after you have heard “yes” a few times. Make a list of potential prospects and the best way to reach them.

  • Relatives
  • Work Acquaintances: Bosses, Co-Workers, Business Partners, Vendors, Clients

  • Members of your church
  • Friends and Neighbors

Be Organized

  • Your personal fundraising website helps you explain your mission and provides a place to direct potential donors to learn more about House of Hope and make online donations.
  • Explain that the funds collected are used solely to save rescued dogs. Make it personal. What does House of Hope mean to you?
  • Use social media sites to remind friends about the fundraiser.
  • Share Facebook posts from the House of Hope page. Invite friends to share to help spread the word.
  • Email your contacts to request donations. Include a link to your personal fundraising page.
  • Keep offline pledge forms on-hand in case prospects prefer to donate in person rather than online.
  • There are more dog lovers out there than you realize. Let your co-workers know you are participating. Ask your supervisor or HR department if your company makes donations to non-profit organizations. You would be surprised by how many employers do!
