"Paw" It Forward!
Become a Business Buddy
All Business Buddies arrangements are custom built to offer you the benefit program that work best for your company. With sponsorship levels starting as low as $250, you will have the opportunity to choose the duration and structure of the promotion, as well as the event your benefits are applied to! Each one of our events gives you a unique opportunity to reach out to our community in countless ways and include the Puppy Love 5K, Spring Fling Gala, Surf Dog Surf-A-Thon and the HOPE Telethon. As an added bonus, your benefits will increase if your promotion nets more than the minimum commitment amount!

Besides Business Buddies, Helen Woodward Animal Center’s PAWS program offers exposure of your business to San Diego residents exclusively through the HOPE Telethon, held annually in the fall. It is one of our largest fundraisers of the year, reaching over 400,000 residents in San Diego through local television, in addition to being streamed live online to residents across the U.S.! A sponsorship of just $250 is all that is needed to join the program, and you will be provided PAWS cards to display in your store. At the time of check out, your customers will be offered the opportunity to purchase a PAW, at the level of their choosing, to honor a person or pet. The purchased PAWS can be displayed inside the store to show your support for orphan pets, and the proceeds will be donated to Helen Woodward Animal Center at the end of the fundraiser. Your benefits are determined based on the sponsorship level; the more PAWS you sell, the more your benefits increase!
