What is a Dog Rescue Cruise?DRC-logo

A Dog Rescue Cruise is an opportunity for non-profit pet rescue organizations to earn money from various cruise lines by reserving group space aboard a luxurious cruise liner and then earning a donation by selling the staterooms.  Once a destination and cruise length is determined, Dog Rescue Cruises searches for the most profitable cruise that offers a fundraising option available as a cruise ship amenity.  No, the dogs can’t go with you (unless they’re cerfitifed guide dogs!).

A Dog Rescue Cruise is a perfect way for non-profit pet rescue organizations to earn money for their cause.  We can accomplish this in many ways:

  1. Choose the fundraising amenity when booking your cruise and your non-profit group receives a post-cruise check for each stateroom sailed
  2. Earn free stateroom space by filling just 8 staterooms (port fees and gov’t. taxes additional)
  3. Increase funds by selling raffle tickets


  1. Decide on the length of the cruise for your group
  2. Determine when you would like to cruise (These specialized cruises require advance planning, so choosing your cruise early will assure the best choices available)
  3. Ask us which sailings ofer a fundraising amenity
  4. Work with us to develop a plan to promote your special sailing. We have access to a whole library of marketing collateral, including postcards, flyers and brochures available for your group’s use.
