2019 Sponsorship Opportunities

In November of 2018, Hinsdale Humane Society (HHS) opened the Tuthill Family Pet Rescue & Resource Center (PRRC) which expanded our ability of rescue approximately 2000 animals annually and provide more innovative and necessary programs to the Chicago area community. The expansion of our existing humane education and pet therapy programs along with the development of new enrichment programs allows us to reach people and families of all ages, socioeconomic backgrounds, and those who could benefit from pet therapy due to health issues.

This is an ideal moment to develop a relationship with new sponsors. By supporting the PRRC throughout the year, you will help us to improve the lives of animals and the people in our community. Included here are a number of sponsorship opportunities. We are excited to offer not only fundraising event sponsorships, but also program sponsorships (12 month duration) and PRRC sponsorships.

Engagement Opportunities

If your company is interested in connecting with HHS beyond financial support, there are many options! We currently have over 200 active volunteers, on whom we rely heavily for daily operations, animal care, pet therapy, and special events.

Shelter Sponsorships

This year, we are inviting our sponsors to engage with HHS in a new way. By investing in a full year (12 month) sponsorship, you will have a greater impact on our work and enjoy a wider reach within our community. We've created new sponsorship levels that bundle multiple event sponsorships throughout 2019 and 2020. Our top levels support our organization for 12 months and include event sponsorships. For information about Shelter Sponsorships, please contact us at 630-323-5630 x44 or development@hinsdalehumanesociety.org.

Program Sponsorships- Humane Education

Our Humane Education Program provides several opportunities for youth to be involved in and learn about the care and humane treatment of animals. Educational programs include our summer camps for youth ages 6-14, Compassionate Kids Corp which includes structured and supervised volunteering opportunities to youth ages 8-13 and our Huggable Pets Program which teaches children in our community to care for pets through educational and fun classes centered around their very own rescue pet- a huggable (stuffed) dog or cat. In addition, Hinsdale Humane Society offers leadership opportunities for high school students through our Junior Board and Teen-internships. Click here to sponsor one of our Humane Education Programs.
