Event Sponsorships

Sponsoring an event at DCHS is an excellent opportunity for your business or organization to reach a wide audience, while supporting thousands of companion, barnyard, wild, and exotic animals that come through our doors each year. DCHS's extensive online and media presence helps connect you with tens of thousands of supporters.

With sponsorship levels from $500-$20,000, we have opportunities for any group to support the shelter. As an event sponsor, you'll receive recognition, support the lifesaving work of DCHS, and connect with fellow supporters, while leaving all the event planning to us!

It is also possible to sponsor one of our shelter programs like the Lonely Hearts Club, Pets for Life, Camp Pawprint, or our Education Programs. Program sponsorships can last from one month to all year long, depending on your group's budget and interest. Most program sponsorships are $500/month or $5,000 for a full year.

If you'd like to learn more about sponsoring one of our events or programs, please contact Sarah at slinn@giveshelter.org. Thank you!
