What is Bark aid?

At times like this, we all need to lend a helping paw where we can to help our society and most vunerable communities.

Together, partnering with a whole host of other dog-related businesses, we're aiming to lift community spirits with one big collective paw print.

We'll be sharing plenty of blogs, up-to-date advice, stories from communities, ideas to improve physical and mental health and positive articles that highlight the continued health benefits dogs can bring during a time like this.


Headline Sponsor Tails.com

On a mission to change the world of pet food, for good.

Back in 2013, tails.com assembled a team of experts including vets, nutritionists and engineers (and their dogs) to develop a super-smart way to create a unique recipe for every single dog. From each dog’s individual food preferences, to itchy skin condition and allergies – each dog’s tails.com recipe is based on information only their owners could know.

It didn’t take long before tails all over the country were wagging over the taste of tails.com. Five years after we began, we’re serving millions of meals a month to thousands of dogs, with a customer satisfaction rating of ‘Excellent’ on trustpilot.com.


How much of the £1.50 goes to charity?

When donations are collected they incur a fee from Paypal which is 2.9 percent per donation and 30p per transaction as of 21st March 2020. This is taken from the donation.

After the Paypal processing fees, the rest of the donation will be given to the charity involved with the selected category, no further expenses will be taken for the purpose of the competition.

Donations are collected and held in PayPal where they are then disbursed to your requested charity.
