Ways to Help
Remember, the first three letters of "fundraising" are F-U-N!
Just shop for ESRA
There's no easier way to donate than just by shopping.
Our various foster homes around the country are always in need of kennel supplies. Any such items donated to us are tax deductible, and ESRA will provide a receipt to anyone donating to us.
Many grocery store chains have programs that will rebate a small percentage of your grocery shopping funds to your favorite charity. We are registered with Kroger's and the numerous other stores that are part of that corporation, such as Ralph's.
Help Support English Springer Rescue AND enjoy the best, organic coffee available. Purchases made through ESRA's Rescue Roast program provide ESRA with financial support.
Hold a fun event
Get things moving and spread the word.
Recycle for Rescue
Keep your eyes open for recycling opportunities, and act on them! Recycling not only is good for the environment, but will also be great for a homeless Springer if you Recycle for Rescue!
Hold a Garage Sale
Hold a garage sale in your community and donate the money to rescue. If you do some advertisement beforehand, people will donate items for the sale. Be sure to ask family members, friends, neighbors, and area merchants for donated items.
Have a Yappy Hour
A "Yappy Hour" is a fundraising event that usually takes place at a restaurant or bar that is dog friendly. You can ask the owners of such establishments in your local area if they will be willing to host one. Here are tips on how to do one.
Each holiday season, some bookstores allow charities to do their Holiday gift wrapping for them in exchange for donations. Some even allow Springers in the store as "ambassadogs"! Here is info on how to do this in your area.
Hold a Raffle
Hold a raffle to help raise money for rescue. Many merchants will donate items and gift certificates to help, and the money raised can be used to save lives.
Many businesses have programs that give money either as matching donations or outright gifts to charitable organizations that their employees work with. See if your employer participates in such a plan.
