Fundraise for animals!

Posted: 11 July 2013. Updated: 9 November 2017

ADI’s work saves hundreds of thousands of animals from suffering every year – through the laws we secure, companies we persuade to stop using animals, techniques we develop to replace animal experiments, and through our dramatic rescues. ADI has rescued big cats, primates, horses and other animals from unimaginable suffering at the hands of humans.

Our rescue work is a huge commitment. We undertake investigations, prosecutions and complex rescue operations.


There are lots of ways that you can help, have fun doing it, meet like-minded people, and recruit more supporters for ADI.

Take part in a sponsored event for animals!

There are a number of ways you can help to raise awareness and funds for animals – why not consider doing a sponsored event?

From dog walking to sky diving, sponsored clean ups in local wildlife areas, or joining a sponsored event on the internet, such as road trips and marathons – you can have fun and raise much needed funds for animals. For more inspiration, click here

Join our Street Team

Our street teams are active throughout the year. Street campaigns with tables and displays, or just standing in a busy area collecting funds, are the foundation of public awareness of animal suffering.

Hitting the streets makes a very real difference. To take part in a street collection, or to find out more, call us on 020 7630 3340 or email us here

    More Fundraising Ideas

    Organise a Lion Ark screening in your community! The award winning film Lion Ark, charting the Animal Defenders International rescue operation to enforce legislation banning animal circuses in Bolivia, has now partnered up with Tugg, an online platform that allows individuals to host screenings in their home town. Find out more!

    How about arranging a house party to raise funds? We can provide the leaflets and posters and perhaps a short rescue DVD to screen. Parties or house gatherings are a great way to bring together people who want to help animals, and any funds you raise can help animals, too. Local businesses are often willing to donate gifts for raffles, or auctions.

    Bake Sale – organise a ‘bake sale’ and get your friends to contribute cakes, flans, breads and other easily portable food for people to buy, raising funds for the animals.

    Local scouts or girl guides – ask them to spend a day packing in the local supermarkets or doing odd jobs for neighbours, to raise funds to support our rescued animals – we have 38 animals to feed!

    Ask local musicians to do a benefit night for ADI’s rescued animals!

    Car Boot Sale or Garage Clearance – you and your friends could organise a car boot sale or garage clearance, all funds for the animals.

    Thank you for caring about those who cannot speak for themselves.
