Sponsor Opportunities

Sponsor a Kennel

Did you know you can sponsor a dog or cat kennel at the Humane Society of the Black Hills? Kennel sponsorship plaques are valid for one year and are displayed on a dedicated wall on the adopt floor of the Humane Society of the Black Hills. Kennel sponsorships help our shelter where needed most.

Become a Medical Sponsor

Our shelter helps about 4,000 local pets every year. Many of these animals arrive in rough shape and need life saving, costly procedures. As a medical sponsor, your donation makes a difference for these high need animals and creates an opportunity for our shelter to help even more pets.

Sponsor an Event

Community events are one of the ways we can give back to our supporters. Events make up a large portion of our fundraising each year. Becoming an event sponsor or providing a matching sponsorship can go great lengths for local pets, all while getting the community excited, too!

Give us a call at (605) 341-3217 to learn more!
