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.
Community Benefit Event
As an organization that receives no government funding, we heavily rely on the help from our community and the amazing benefit events our supporters hold for the homeless animals. A community benefit event is an event that raises funds to benefit the Lake Humane Society which is held by a third-party group or individual.
These events are fully planned and promoted by the third-party. If you are interested in hosting an event for LHS or having us attend one, please complete the off-site event application at the bottom of this page. Once we receive the completed form, our Event Coordinator will contact you.
Please do not assume that because you have submitted your application that your event is approved.
Adoption and Outreach Events
In order to get our adoptable pets more exposure and increase their chances of finding a home, we partner with local businesses to have mobile adoption events and community outreach events. While we love participating in as many events as we can, we do have some requirements for mobile adoption events. We kindly ask that we are contacted about events at least 8 weeks in advance.
If you are interested in having us attend an event or are interested in hosting an adoption event, please complete the off-site event application at the bottom of this page. Once we receive the completed form, our Event Coordinator will contact you.
Please do not assume that because you have submitted your application that your event is approved. You must receive approval by our Event Coordinator.
Sponsor Lake Humane Society Events
Is your company looking for a way to not only promote your business but also make a difference within the community? If so, consider sponsoring one of our continuously growing events. These events reach thousands of Northeast Ohioans and help us continue to save lives and provide invaluable programs and services to our community.
Our sponsorship opportunities provide our sponsors with maximum exposure prior to the event as well as extensive acknowledgement during and after our events. By sponsoring our events, you can show that your company supports homeless animals on their journey to finding a forever home and the people within the community who love their pets.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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”.
LHS is unable to provide mailing lists, pay for additional costs associated with the event or ensure attendance at the event.
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.
