Help and FAQs

Through your Pet Tribute Fund, you and your family and friends can come together to share memories of your pet and raise money for Battersea.


What is Pet Tribute Fund?

Pet Tribute Fund is an online fundraising space where you, your family and friends can share photos, stories and memories about a beloved pet whilst raising money for the dogs and cats at Battersea at the same time.


Why create a Pet Tribute Fund page?

Losing a pet can be one of the hardest things you go through – after all, they're part of the family. So when you feel ready, sharing happy memories, stories and pictures of your pet can be a lovely way to remember them, while bringing you some comfort at a difficult time. That’s why we've created the Battersea Pet Tribute Fund; a special place for you to keep the memory of your beloved friend alive, while raising much-needed funds for the animals at Battersea.


How do I get started?

It’s easy to create your own Pet Tribute Fund. Simply set up an account by following the step by step process.


Do I need to pay a fee to set up my page?

Your Pet Tribute Fund is free to set up. The money you raise will help us to care for the 7,000 animals that arrive at Battersea every year.


Do I need to set a fundraising target?

It’s entirely up to you. Setting a fundraising target is optional.


Can I add Gift Aid to the donations?

Yes. Simply tick the Gift Aid box when you make your donation.


Can I add fundraising events to my page?

Yes. Simply click on ‘Create an event in memory’ and follow the step-by-step process.


How much of the money raised on my page goes to Battersea?

Our Pet Tribute Fund provider charges a 3% transaction fee on each donation made to the page, meaning that for a £10.00 donation 30p would go towards the running of the page. This is similar to JustGiving or other online donation platforms. We hope that our Pet Tribute Funds offer a personal space where you can remember a pet over a few months or even a number of years, providing an easy way to ask friends and family to make a contribution and, therefore, have a much bigger long-term impact on our animals and the care we can give them.


Is there someone I can talk to directly?

Yes, we're here to help. If you have any questions or want to chat through setting up your page please email us on or telephone a member of the fundraising team on 020 7627 9300.
