Animal Rescue Shelter Sponsorship Sample Proposal
Our records show that you recently attended a pet adoption event at Compassionate Companions and took home one of our most beloved dogs, a Sheltie we called Emma. We hope you and Emma are enjoying your new relationship and looking forward to the upcoming holiday season. As we enter the short days of winter and the holidays, our human need for companionship often intensifies. So do the needs for our animal companions, especially for those not yet lucky enough to find a forever home.
At Compassionate Companions, our need for sponsors becomes particularly acute during the coldest months, because our heating and feeding bills are high and the pet adoptions dip during inclement weather. So we hope that you can open your heart and your pocketbook on behalf of your company and your family. Compassionate Companions is a nonprofit organization that serves your community.
Your donation is fully tax deductible. We believe that donations should benefit both parties. In this proposal, we have outlined the needs, described the facilities and services your donation will support, and explained how your generosity will be recognized in our literature and community outreach programs.
Thank you for consideration. Rest assured that your generous donation to Compassionate Companions Animal Shelter will be put to the best possible use. With the help of our volunteers and the financial support of our donors, we plan to serve the animals and people in our community for the next 20 years. We need the support of people like you to keep the shelter running and we offer a mutually beneficial donor and sponsorship program.
Compassionate Companions Animal Shelter has been a fixture in the Midvale community for more than eight years. More than 40,000 animals have passed through our shelter in that time period, receiving food, shelter, and loving care. Eighty percent of them have found lifelong loving homes through our adoption programs.
As you might guess, it takes a lot of money to care for that many animals. Most of our staff are dedicated volunteers and for that we are extremely grateful. But even with the generosity of all their donated time, we still have to pay our utility bills, our food bills, and pay for medicine and supplies for all the animals in our care.
The need during the coldest months of winter is especially great. Sponsoring Compassionate Companions Animal Shelter will save the lives of thousands of innocent animals each year, and will give back to our community. We wrote this proposal to explain how you can help and describe how your generous gift will be used. Compassionate Companions offers four levels of sponsorship.
The following list shows some of our most prominent sponsors in our community. Savior Sponsorship - $10,000 or more Caroline’s Cookie Factory Strongarm Steel Products Factory Furniture Warehouse Best Big Burgers Perfect Pet Stores.

At Compassionate Companions, our priorities are as follows. Provide a safe, healthy environment for all animals in our care We never turn any animal away for any reason. Although we always strive to find adoptive homes for all our animals, occasionally we must provide long term care for aged, ill, or mistreated animals. Promote pet adoptions to match animals with lifelong loving homes We hold monthly adoption events at local pet stores and parks, as well as continually advertising our adoptable animals on community access television and on the internet.
Promote affordable spay and neuter programs To prevent the proliferation of unwanted animals in our community, we spay or neuter all animals that pass through our shelter. In addition, our volunteer veterinarians offer affordable spay and neuter services to low-income clients in a monthly clinic. Rescue lost and abandoned animals City streets and suburban neighborhoods are not safe environments for pets on the loose.
Whether they are temporarily lost or in need of a new home, our volunteers will pick up stray animals in our communities and care for them in our facility until they can be reunited with their owners or placed with a new family. This makes our neighborhoods safer for both pets and people. Educate citizens about responsible and compassionate care for animals Whether it’s an iguana or a kitten, our volunteers offer training and checklists so new owners can learn how to take the best care of their pet. Volunteers are available at all hours to answer questions on the phone.
Our animal shelter is located in a spacious former warehouse, which we have remodeled to include the following areas. Clinic Intake Area This area is outfitted with rooms for two veterinarians to examine and treat animals as needed. Here our volunteer vets perform neuter and spay operations, inoculate all animals, and carry out surgery and various medical care procedures to take the best possible care of our animals. Small Animal Room This room houses 60 secure, comfortable cages, perfect for guinea pigs, rabbits, ferrets, reptiles and the occasional exotic small animal we care for.
Bird Room This small room houses 20 cages suitable for birds of all sizes. Cat Colony Room This room can accommodate up to 30 cats that enjoy being around other cats. Cat Adoption Room This room contains 32 cages for those cats that prefer their own private space.
Cat Get Acquainted Room This room is set up to introduce families to potential pets in a calm, secure area. Dog Runs We have 50 dog runs that can be reconfigured to handle dogs of all sizes. The fronts of the dog runs are glass, allowing visitors to view and select dogs for adoption.
All dog runs have 24 hour indoor outdoor access. Dog Get Acquainted Room This room is set up to introduce families to potential pets in a calm, secure area. Dog Get Acquainted Room This room is set up to introduce families to potential pets in a calm, secure area.

Compassionate Companions Animal Shelter is a nonprofit organization. The shelter was originally funded by a generous posthumous donation from Perri and Michael Michener in 2005 and set up by their daughters Vera and Jessica to house dogs that needed a home. In 2008, we expanded to include cats and other animals in need.
Although the Michener family no longer runs the shelter, they are still generous supporters and enthusiastic advocates for animals who need our help. We never turn away any animal for any reason. Our mission at Compassionate Companions is to care for every animal in need and to match pets with forever homes. "We never turn away any animal for any reason".
We’ve been doing that for eight years now, and have served over 40,000 animals in need. With the help of our volunteers and the financial support of our donors, we plan to serve the animals and people in our community for the next 20 years. Stop in to donate, visit, volunteer, or adopt a new pet.
