Our Favorite Ideas for Pet-Loving Teams

Program Sponsorship

When your business becomes an OTAT Program Sponsor, the fun (and most importantly, the lifesaving) never stops! Program Sponsors are invited to become part of OTAT’s work through group volunteering, hosting adoptable pets in your office, and other opportunities to engage with One Tail’s mission.

View our Program Sponsorship opportunities and email [email protected] with any questions or to make your commitment to ending pet homelessness with One Tail at a Time!

Pet Mutual Aid Supply Drive

One Tail at a Time’s Pet Mutual Aid support the idea that “it’s not rescue if they already have a home.” Our PMA programming provides resources and support to Chicago pet owners in order to keep pets with the families that love them.

Your team can organize a supply drive to help PMA take care of community pets! Check out our wishlist and email [email protected] for more info.

More ways to help

Event Sponsorship

Have your company front and center at an OTAT event, like our annual Houndstooth Ball gala which brings together over 600 rescue-loving Chicagoans and has twice been featured in the Chicago Tribune. See upcoming events and email [email protected] for sponsorship opportunities!

Sponsor adoption fees

Your company can donate or raise funds to sponsor the adoption fees of One Tail at a Time adoptable pets! Email [email protected] to give more rescue pets to a place to call home.
