The Pet Fest and Walk for Animals is an annual event orchestrated by the 501(c)3 non-profit, the New Bedford Coalition for Animals. This is our biggest fundraiser of the year, with 100% of the profits going to support our diverse programs that benefit the health and well being of animals in our community. A South Coast tradition, this event is in its 21st year running, and is attended by upwards of 600 people and 400 dogs. The day includes a two mile fundraising walk, up to 60 vendors, and interactive demonstrations in the center ring. The event gets bigger and better every year!
We are inviting local businesses to further support our event by sponsoring the day and/or the event t-shirts. By donating to our cause, you can reap a variety of sponsorship benefits.
Our most popular option involves sponsorship of the event's t-shirts, where your business's name will be included on the t-shirts that will be distributed to every walker at the fundraiser.
A lot of promotion goes into this event; sponsors can be included in press releases, our website, Facebook advertising, our fundraising/walker registration website, mentions by the master of ceremonies throughout the day, and banners at the event. This invitation is a great opportunity to support a hard-working, all volunteer charity, as well as increase your visibility in the community; making for a mutually beneficial partnership.
