Corporate Sponsorship

Team Work Makes the Dream Work

Become a Corporate Sponsor

HSHC offers local businesses the opportunity to partner with us on an annual basis as a Corporate Sponsor. The program is designed to compliment your current advertising and grass roots marketing efforts to help you reach very targeted, affluent, and loyal customers.

Corporate Sponsors receive a robust benefits package each year designed to drive traffic to your store front, expand your reach, and build brand awareness. We will introduce you to our fiercely loyal support base of well over 70K animal lovers focused in primarily Hamilton and Marion County, but still thousands more all over the state of Indiana and across the U.S.

And as we are now moved into our new 40,000 square foot, state-of-the-art facility in Fishers, the number of visitors, adopters, volunteers, and more, is going to explode.

If you would like to grow your business while helping the animals, please contact us for more information.

    Sure Did.

    Our Corporate Sponsorship Program has a proven record of driving new business to our sponsors.

    Unlike the single purchase of an expensive print advertisement or radio buy that runs alongside your competitors’, our Corporate Sponsorship Program cuts through all that advertising noise with multiple ways to reach new customers throughout the year.

    Our program provides businesses a multi-layered marketing strategy that:
    • Kicks things off with an official press release and a social media announcement of our partnership and your support of the animals.
    • Reaches a captive audience (over 2,000 adopters) each year with your brochure or special offer in every outgoing adoption packet – a benefit reserved for only Corporate Sponsors.
    • Features your logo in the lobby of our new facility Welcome Center where we expect foot traffic will exceed 100K in 2021.
    • Includes opportunities to reach our support base via HSHC’s social media outlets, website, e-blasts, and marketing events.

    SEE FAQ’s below for additional benefits and details.

    Greater ROI. Less Cost.

    The cost to acquire new customers is always more expensive with a “shotgun” approach to advertising. Unless you have no competition, both you and your competitors are probably advertising in the same places: print ads in the newspaper/local magazine publications, local radio stations, billboards, and television. We don’t have to tell you how expensive it is.

    However, our program provides multiple ways to reach a very loyal and affluent base of potential customers without getting lost in the noise…and at a fraction of the cost.

    The Numbers are in Your Favor

    There are countless charities with critical missions in need of support. But this isn’t a donation. It’s an investment.

    People who love animals span every demographic and socioeconomic group. With us, you’re casting a wide net that will reach both consumers and other businesses who need your services.

    According to the 2019-2020 National Pet Owners Survey conducted by the American Pet Products Association (APPA), 67% of U.S. households, or about 85 million families, own at least one pet.

    According to the U.S. Census Bureau Data for Hamilton County, Indiana and U.S. statistics for pet ownership, over 75,000 Hamilton County Households own at least one pet.

    Bottom line…investing in HSHC is just good business.

    What Makes Us Special

    HSHC supporters are fiercely loyal to our no kill philosophy and mission.

Our unique programs that connect veterans, seniors, and at-risk youth with the healing power of pets has broadened our reach throughout Indiana, and cemented our bond, with animal lovers in our community. HSHC also saves hundreds of animals at risk for euthanasia in other Indiana shelters every year.

    HSHC has taken a leadership role in protecting animals all over the state of Indiana. We are located in Hamilton County and bear its name…but our work has and continues to reach far beyond the county line.

    Our loyal following loves the work we do…and that’s why they support the businesses who support us.
