Dogs for Dogs - 26th January

Posted by Nerilie Watson on 22 December 2014 | 8 Comments


Planning a BBQ this Australia day? Love dogs? Then this event is for you!


Dogs for Dogs


This Australia Day, we’re giving dogs lovers an opportunity to come together over a good old Aussie BBQ with friends, family or workmates and share a hot dog or a sausage sizzle, whilst helping raise funds for Perth’s unwanted and abandoned dogs.

When? The official day will coincide with Australia Day on Monday 26 January 2015, however events can be held any time during January or February 2015.

Get involved as a Host

It’s an easy 3 step process...

Dogs for Dogs


  1. Choose a location
  2. Set up your fundraising page
  3. Spread the word amongst your dog loving community!

Want to do more?

  • Become an official sponsor
  • Provide pro-bono marketing or promotional support
  • Donate prizes for the highest fundraisers - the Top Dogs

Get your workplace involved

Why not organise a BBQ with your workmates? It’s a great way for everyone to come together and raise money for dogs in need. Simply talk to the boss, register your workplace as a team, set up your fundraising page, promote your event and start fundraising.

Why not?... ask management to consider matching your fundraising dollar-for-dollar to make an even bigger impact!

Tips and Hints

Consider vegetarian sausages as an option for the growing number of non-meat eaters.

Throw down a challenge and encourage similar businesses / dog walking groups / community groups to see who can raise the most money.

Get Involved!

Registrations open 1 January 2015

  • Hi,
    I'm an exchange student from Norway, just arrived in Perth.
    I am truly a doglover who have had dogs around me all my life(already missing my two poodles back home). So I am wondering if there is any chance to become a volunteer? I'll be super happy to help with anything!
