Dog-Kennel or Cat-Cage Sponsorship
Receive a plaque with your name, honoree, memorial, etc. on it. The plaque will be mounted on a cage for the duration of your sponsorship. Cat-cage sponsorships are $500 for one year, and dog-kennel sponsorships are $1,000 for one year.
Not able to adopt right now, but looking for a way to help? Do you want to put a face to your donation? Consider sponsoring a pet! Pet sponsorship offers you the opportunity to have a "virtual pet," while simultaneously supporting the Humane Society of Greater Dayton. The average sponsorship is $500, which is based on the average stay of an animal. The costs associated with an animal's stay include intake, vaccinations, spay/neuter services, vet services and the housing of the animal until it is adopted. On occasion, there may be an animal who needs special care, due to an illness or injury. These occasional circumstances make some sponsorship amounts greater than $500.
If your business is interested in becoming a sponsor of the Humane Society of Greater Dayton, contact Brian Weltge, President and C.E.O., at firstname.lastname@example.org. You may also reach him by phone, at 937/262-5928. He will follow up within one week to discuss the options that best fit your business.
