In order to easily collect contactless donations to the Blue Cross, the animal charity is now using 'Tap Dogs' wearing special jackets.

These Tap Dogs sport jackets that contain built-in PayPal Here terminals, which makes it possible for people to pat a dog and with a payment card on hand and instantly make a £2 donation to the Blue Cross.

This donation collection is more likely to succeed than a traditional collection tin, since people are bound to be on board with opening their hearts and wallets for animals in the Tap Dog fleet like Maverick the Border Collie, Cherry the Lurcher and Rosie the Labrador. As well as succeeding at collecting donations to the Blue Cross, this initiative doubles as a reminder that there are thousands of unwanted pets out there that need loving homes.
