What non-animal welfare organizations in your community do you partner with and for what purpose?

For example - do you hold adoption events at local car dealerships? Do you get volunteers from a local business that gives their employees a day off to volunteer?

Share your partnerships or partnership ideas below!

    Saw a new one yesterday...

    An independent grocery store is selling reusable shopping bags and $1 from each sale goes to the rescue (charity selection rotates with other community organizations).

    A sampling from our service area:

    - several local insurance agents will donate $5-$10 per quote to local animal welfare partners (State Farm & Allstate)

    - quite a few chains will do % of sales for certain days or times when customers mention or bring in a flyer from the selected organization (Burger 21, California Pizza Kitchen, 5 Below, other independents)

    - retail stores that specialize in running provide in-kind donations, pre-race packet pick up and event advertising for 5K fundraisers

    - a local tv reporter has a social media account for all animal related stories - positive and negative - including lost pets, events, human interest, rehoming, contests, etc (k9kait on facebook...metro ATL)

    - an independent board/train facility donates time & space for dogs at-risk due to length of shelter stay or behavior issues

    - community associations allow us to participate in their events such as festivals, parades

    - SEPT 28 & 29... Coldwell Banker Real Estate is partnering with for Homes for Dogs National Adoption Weekend. We haven't done this one yet but contact your local agent!

    One of our partners is a local TV news station. Every year, we run a telethon on their network to raise money. We also partner with a pet food company who provides some free food for shelter animals as well as food that we can sell in our pet supply store. Additionally, we partner with a number of companies who provide free food and beverage for our events as well as a number of companies who provide auction items.
