1. Personalize your Dog Jog page!
Every single person or family who registers for Dog Jog gets a fundraising page! Add text and a photo to tell everyone what your goal is! If you are part of a team you could even add a team photo to your page.
2. Tell your story.
Write a personal appeal to all of your friends and family telling them why you are participating in this event and raising funds to help out homeless animals. Ask them to join your team or make a donation in support of you that will help animals in need.
3. Try out the donation button!
Is there more than one Dog Jog team in your company, school or neighbourhood? Inspire everyone’s competitive spirit by setting up a challenge of some kind, or an incentive for the team with the most members or highest fundraising total.

Ask your employer to match what you raise. In addition, individual gifts made by your supporters may be eligible for matching funds from their employers please remind them to find out about their company’s matching gift policy.
