Want to get your organization involved with DCHS?

SHARE:

There are many ways local businesses support DCHS! Read on to see what route would be a good fit for your organization.

Are you curious how your employer or business could partner with DCHS to make an impact for animals? Through the years, our generous friends at Mounds Pet Food Warehouse have demonstrated many ways local businesses can help DCHS provide care and comfort to our community’s animals. Do any of these ideas fit your organization?

Could your business host a percentage night to benefit DCHS? Each February, Mounds runs a month-long “People for Pets” fundraising event for DCHS. In the past they have donated 10% of all pet food sales and inspired one of their vendors to give 10% of their pet food sales, too! Their program has raised enough money to cover the cost of all cat, dog and rabbit spay and neuter surgeries for a year.

How can you challenge your customers to join you in generosity? This year Mounds re-envisioned People for Pets month by matching donations given by customers at the stores’ registers dollar-for-dollar! What would a matching challenge look like for your company?

Want to have a great time with your team, while receiving big recognition? Mounds is always ready to support our three major fundraising events Toto’s Gala, Dogtoberfest and Bark & Wine. Event sponsorship saves lives while you receive perks like event tickets and recognition before, during and after the event. It is a great way to show your customers (and employees) that you care about the community.

Mounds generously donates their Midwest-made Mounds Dog Power and Purrfect Cat pet food for all of our shelter animals, in addition to tons of cat litter each year! Mounds also provides items and gift certificates for our silent auctions and raffles, runs collection drives throughout the year and helps spread the word about DCHS.

No matter the size or type of business, we’re happy to partner with you to support animals! Contact Sarah Linn at slinn@giveshelter.org or Ash Collins at acollins@giveshelter.org to learn more about how you can join us.
