 Why Raise Money for the Rhode Island SPCA?

The money raised at the Walk goes directly toward helping our animals by providing food, shelter, veterinary care, and a chance for a new home. This community event is anticipated by pet lovers throughout the state. You won’t want to miss it! We invite you to get involved by collecting pledges for the walk, starting a fundraising team of walkers, and bringing your dogs for an excellent day in the park. It is all for a good cause and the animals thank you for your support!

Start collecting pledges!

There is no minimum amount walkers must raise. The more money participants raise at this pledge style fundraiser, the more prizes they earn. The fundraising goal for individuals is $250.  Ask friends, family, co-workers, and everyone you know.

Create your own fundraising site and collect pledges on-line or collect pledges by cash or check

Create a fundraising team!

Raising money for the homeless animals at the Rhode Island SPCA is even more fun with a team!  Start a team of walkers with friends, family, co-workers, or any other animal lovers you know.  All funds raised by team members go toward your team goal. Great prizes for the top fundraising team.
