Business Sponsorship Opportunities

Cause-related marketing is a terrific approach to reaching new audiences and expanding your customer base. Businesses that contribute products or financial donations to our mission receive numerous marketing benefits in addition to a tax deduction. The greatest reward comes from knowing your sponsorship literally enables us to save the lives of more than 4,500 homeless animals each year. We have several sponsorship opportunities to meet your budget. Choose the one that most aligns with your customer demographic and charitable philosophy.

 

Adoption Promotions

Throughout the year, we host several adoption promotions with a emphasis on offering limited time offers of special adoption fees. Many of these promotions are theme oriented and coincide with holidays. Previous sponsors have taken advantage of our high traffic levels at the Adoption Center and offered product sampling and demos, coupons and register-to-win opportunities. To learn more about our upcoming promotional calendar and identify an opportunity for your business, please contact Eileen Bouressa, Vice President of Development & Community Programs, at (828) 761-2001 x 306 or email ebouressa@ashevillehumane.org 

Community Adoption Events

We frequently receive invitations from area businesses to bring our adoptable animals to their storefront to help generate traffic and awareness. During the temperate seasons, we strive to have a strong presence among local businesses as we recognize and support the importance of promoting local commerce. If your company would like to host an adoption event at your place of business, please contact Lauren Weldishofer, Special Events Manager, at (828) 761-2001 x 323 or email lweldishofer@ashevillehumane.org

Kitty Litter Lovers

You don't have to love kitty litter to sponsor our Kitty Litter Lovers program, you simply need to reach a discerning audience of female, head-of-household customers. For $500 a month, this sponsorship opportunity provides terrific branding opportunities to reach a segment of the population you wish to attract to your business. Your sponsorship underwrites the expense of cat litter in our Adoption Center each month and your business logo receives prominent in-lobby signage and website placement. To find out how you can sponsor our Kitty Litter Lovers program, contact Eileen Bouressa, Vice President of Development & Community Programs, at (828) 761-2001 x 306 or email ebouressa@ashevillehumane.org 

Love In A Can

It might be inconceivable at first, but you really can sponsor Love In A Can. Each month, we purchase canned cat and dog food to help stimulate the appetite of those animals who are sick, injured, stressed or simply lonely. This affordable monthly sponsorship of $500 to cover this cost celebrates the love we have for those special needs animals requiring a little nudge to keep their spirits high as they await their forever homes. Prominent lobby signage and website placement make this a great opportunity for consumer-driven businesses. To schedule your month, contact Eileen Bouressa, Vice President of Development & Community Programs, at (828) 761-2001 x 306 or email ebouressa@ashevillehumane.org 

Trivia Night

With nearly 400 attendees, our annual Trivia Night pulls from all demographics and offers your business an opportunity to be in front of individuals who are community minded. As a fundraiser for our Foster Program, this evening is well publicized and promises a large reach into the animal loving community. Traditionally held in the early spring, this event is a perfect match for businesses hoping to develop brand loyalty.
