Door to door fundraising
Each year we run a door-to-door fundraising campaign. Our fundraisers call at homes across England and Wales, giving people the chance to find out about our work and become a regular supporter.
This campaign has proved to be an essential source of much-needed funds. We’ve also discovered that our door-to-door campaign brings us new supporters who we might not have had the opportunity to reach in other ways.
Your donation doesn’t have to be much - someone who regularly supports us with a direct debit will make a significant difference over several years.
If you do sign up to a regular gift and are a UK tax payer, did you know that you can increase its value by almost a quarter simply by signing a Gift Aid declaration? By making your gift tax-efficient through Gift Aid, you’ll turn every £1 you give into £1.25 for us.
So if one of our fundraisers calls at your door, please be friendly!
How can you be sure that someone is a genuine RSPCA fundraiser?
All our door to door fundraisers are smartly dressed and wear a blue tabard with the RSPCA logo printed in white on the front. They also wear ID badges displaying their unique fundraiser ID number, a photo of themselves and a letter of authorisation from us. To see if they are in your area, please see the document below.
Each year we also run a door to door fundraising campaign where fundraisers approach small and medium sized businesses across England and Wales. This gives employees the chance to find out about our work and become a regular supporter through sponsorship of our cat pods and dog kennels.
We insist that all our door to door fundraisers follow the strict code of conduct laid down by the Fundraising Regulator. In the unlikely event that one of our fundraisers does not conduct themselves professionally, please contact our Supporter Services Team to make a complaint, including full details of the complaint with the address, date, time and fundraisers name, ID and details of their appearance if available:
By phone: (9.00am-5pm, Monday to Friday)

RSPCA door-to-door fundraising is undertaken up until 8.30pm Monday-Saturday and from 8.30-9pm only if there is a prior appointment.
This finish time is earlier than the guidance given by the Fundraising Regulator where the Door-to Door rulebook states "Standard Door-to-Door Operating Hours Fundraising must not commence before 9am Monday to Saturday or before 10am on Sundays and public holidays, or after 9pm, on any day or date."
