Each year our shelter is visited by many people including adopters, volunteers, donors, tour groups and those who are just "stopping by." Most animals are not adopted by the first person who looks at them which potentially translates into hundreds of visitors each week.

We offer individuals and businesses the opportunity to provide support in the form of sponsorship. It can be in the form of a kennel or cage, a door or hallway, perhaps an entire room or wing. There is always the option of placing a sign on the fence of our outdoor Bark Park too. The paws'ibilities are endless.

Your sponsorship provides the chance to display your name, business association, a beloved pet or loved one who may represent a special part of your life whether living or no longer with you, a team or group, again, the ideas are limitless for this. 100% of the proceeds from a sponsorship go to take care of our pets waiting for their furever home and you will spread the community spirit and goodwill too.

If building naming rights are not exactly what you had in mind then consider purchasing food for our pets for a week, a month or a year. We have found that feeding our pets a consistent diet reduces intestinal issues for the animals. We buy our pet food at a bulk rate in order to get the best value, so this method of feeding works best over donating previously purchased food.

We also take our message out in to the community in various ways so consider becoming a special events or offsite adoption event sponsor. These sorts of sponsorships offer great exposure on our website, in our newsletter and on all promotional materials too.

Other opportunities include sponsoring a specific pet that is waiting for adoption or financing the adoption fees for another person who has lots of love to give, but is short on resources at adoption time. You can sponsor the re-design of our outdated Adoption Option Trailer or 2nd Chances Thrift Store van. Perhaps it is best for you if your sponsorship dollars were part of new entrance sign that is sorely needed for relaying adoption promotions. Again, the paws'ibilities are limited only by the imagination.
