Host or Sponsor An Event

Do you want to help the animals by holding an event of your own? Below we’ve outlined the various events we happily participate in.

LHS Third Party Fundraiser & Event Guidelines

Please review the following information before submitting your application.

Thank you for your interest in hosting an event to benefit the animals of Lake Humane Society. We are a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization and do not receive any government funding. Without supporters like you, we would not be able to do the work we do. In order to ensure your third-party/community event is successful and avoids any conflicts with LHS donors, corporate sponsors, or events that have already been planned, we ask you to follow the following requirements when planning your event.

  1. Please complete and submit a third-party event application at least 30 days prior to your event. Your event/promotion should be compatible with our mission and promote the appropriate image of Lake Humane Society (LHS).
  2. LHS must be consulted before any businesses, corporations, foundations or individuals are approached for support of the event/promotion. LHS needs to be informed and involved to ensure the solicitation is appropriate, coordinated, and to prevent incidents of simultaneous asks of the same vendor.
  3. Please do not print any materials, pursue any media publicity or solicit cash/in-kind sponsors until you have received approval for your event from LHS.
  4. The fundraising event or appeal organizer/sponsor agrees to obtain all required permits and licenses. Event or promotion must comply with all relevant laws. The fundraising event or appeal must have no conflict with government regulations or licensing. It is the organizer’s responsibility to ensure the event or appeal is legal under Ohio Law.
  5. It is important that the LHS name and logo be used correctly and spelled properly. Neither may be used until approval has been granted to the event organizer and always refer to the organization at “Lake Humane Society”.
  6. LHS is unable to provide mailing lists, pay for additional costs associated with the event or ensure attendance at the event.
  7. Please advise LHS of any changes in the event/promotion.

If your application is approved.

  • We will send you the appropriate LHS logo to you exclusively for use in promotion of event. Other use is prohibited without written consent.
  • While we cannot guarantee additional promotion of your event through other publications, media outlets, we will promote on our Calendar of Events on our website.
  • We will add your event to our third-party/community event calendar and have a presence at the event if requested & if we have the provided resources to attend. Please note that while we do have volunteers trained to represent LHS at your event, we are not always able to assist with additional volunteer needs.

We receive a great deal of requests to have LHS and animals on-site at third party events. While we do our best to accommodate as many events as we can, we are very limited on our animal population as well as staff and volunteers and will not always be able to attend. Typically, we are able to bring 2-3 dogs to smaller events, however, they are not available to adopt on-site at said event. If you are requesting to host a "same day adoption event", we require at least 8 weeks noticed and cannot guarantee that we will be able to accommodate due to limited staff & volunteers.
