Getting Started is Easy!  Just Follow these Simple Steps...


STEP 1: Think About What Inspired You to Participate in the Dogtoberfest Pledge Drive

  1. Did you adopt a pet from Suncoast Animal League? Make your page “In Honor” or “In Memory” of your pet.
  2. Did a special story on our Facebook page encourage you to get involved? Copy and paste the story onto your fundraising page.
  3. Share photos and a story of your special pet.

STEP 2: Set a $$ Fundraising Goal

  1. Think about what Suncoast Animal League needs to help animals and make that your goal.
  2. The average cost to prepare an animal for adoption is $350, which includes medical exams, tests, microchip, vaccinations and spay/neuter surgery.
