Fundraising for Open Door Animal Sanctuary

Thank you for your interest in holding a fundraising event/activity for Open Door Animal Sanctuary (ODAS)!  Your efforts will help us rescue, rehabilitate, and rehome more than 1,100 dogs and cats each year and care for the nearly 400 at our shelter we care for each day!

We define events that benefit ODAS, but are not initiated and organized by ODAS staff/leadership, as a “third party event”. These include fundraising events/activities organized by individuals and non-affiliated groups/businesses/organizations.  These events require little to no ODAS staff involvement and require no fiduciary responsibility from ODAS.

If you are interested in organizing/hosting a third party event, we ask you (the organizer), review the PDF document below (click on link) and complete the application.  The completed application should  be sent to carrie@odas.org.  This should be done at least six weeks prior to the event.  You will be notified within 10 days of receipt of the application if the event/activity is approved.

Third Party Event Information and Application PDF

 

If you would like to request Open Door’s participation in/presence at an event your business/organization is holding, we ask you (the organizer), review the PDF document below (click on link) and complete the application.   The completed application should  be sent to carrie@odas.org.  This should be done at least six weeks prior to the event.  You will be notified within 10 days of receipt of the application if the event/activity is approved.

Please keep in mind in order for us to consider participating in an outside event where we bring adoptable cats and dogs, we often require a fundraising component to be built into the event in order to consider participation.  This is necessary because it requires a great deal of time and expense to transport our animals to and from the shelter.  Additionally, if we commit to attending an event, we cannot guarantee minimum numbers or types of animals will be available on the day of the event due to factors beyond our control.
