Events and Fundraising


At Spirit of the Dog Rescue, our mission extends beyond the boundaries of traditional rescue efforts. We’re not just dedicated to saving lives; we’re committed to enriching them. With every event we attend, we aim to connect with our community, spread awareness, and raise the vital funds needed to continue our work in dog-centred care. Join us in our mission to make a difference, one Spirit Dog at a time.

Your dog’s safety and security are paramount. That’s why we offer free microchipping services at various locations throughout the year. Microchipping is a simple, quick, and painless procedure that can significantly increase the chances of your dog being safely recovered and returned to you if they ever get lost. Keep an eye on our calendar for upcoming microchipping events near you.

Every month, you can find the Spirit of the Dog Rescue team at Pets at Home stores in Pitsea and Southend. These events are a fantastic opportunity to meet our team, learn more about what we do, and how you can help. From discussions about dog-centred care to showcasing some of our dogs in need of homes, these visits are at the heart of our fundraising efforts. Stop by to say hello, and maybe leave with a little something special for you, your dog—or even a new family member.

Our presence at local community events is a crucial part of our outreach and fundraising efforts. Whether it’s fairs, markets, or special dog-related gatherings, we’re there with our tails wagging. These events are perfect for those looking to get involved or learn more about responsible dog companionship, behaviour, and wellbeing. Plus, they’re a great way to support our cause while enjoying the day with like-minded dog lovers.

For those who can’t make it to our events but still wish to contribute, online donations are an invaluable way to support our cause. Your generosity enables us to continue providing lifesaving care, support, and rehoming services for dogs in need. Visit our Donation Page to make a contribution that could change a dog’s life forever.

Our Promise

At Spirit of the Dog Rescue, every event we attend and every penny we raise goes directly towards rescuing, rehabilitating, and responsibly rehoming dogs in need. We are committed to providing lifelong behaviour and wellbeing support to our dogs and their adoptive families, ensuring a happy, healthy life for every Spirit Dog that comes into our care.
