Fundraise for animals!

Posted: 12 July 2013. Updated: 10 December 2019

ADIs 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.

Host a fundraiser for the animals

Hosting a fundraiser can be easier than you think, by throwing a dinner party, a vegan cheese and wine evening, or even a vegan food tasting event! Not only is this a sociable and fun way to spend time, it also raises much needed funds for animals! By asking people to give a minimum dollar amount to attend, or perhaps having an auction, or even a jewelry sale among friends and family, you can be guaranteed of a successful evening, like this one in Los Angeles in December 2019.

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

How about arranging a house party to raise funds? We can provide the leaflets and posters and perhaps a short rescue DVD to screen.
