Corporate Support

The generosity of our corporate supporters and their teams makes an extra special impact at One Tail. There are so many different ways for your company to save lives with us, and we make it fun every step of the way!

Please note: At this time, we are only able to accommodate group volunteer experiences for OTAT program sponsors & our DIY Pet Mutual Aid pantry organizers. See below for info on both of these unique opportunities!

Our Favorite Ideas for Pet-Loving Teams

Program Sponsorship

Once you become an OTAT program sponsor, the fun (and most importantly, the lifesaving) never stops! Program sponsors have the opportunity to volunteer with adoptable pets, host rescue dogs in their office, and much more.  Email [email protected] for information on becoming a One Tail at a Time “Rescue,” “Foster,” or “Adopt” level sponsor.

DIY Pet Mutual Aid Pantries

Help keep Chicago pets and their people together. Your team will organize a pet and people pantry from start to finish — we’ll provide a toolkit with all you need to know, and support on the day of your event! 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.

Matching Donations

Stand by your employees and their dedication to ending pet homelessness by offering to match their donations to OTAT dollar-for-dollar, or simply donate on their behalf to say thanks! Learn more >>

Organize a Supply / Donation Drive

You can download and print and/or digitally share our online wish-list throughout your company to collect donations for OTAT’s foster pets and community outreach programs!

Other ideas:
  • Set up donation jars and collect loose change
  • Throw an all-you-can-eat “Pancakes for Pups” fundraiser
  • Plan your own company-wide 5k walk or run
  • Throw a monthly “Yappy Hour” and match donations made during the event
  • Host a “Jeans Day,” where employees donate for each item they’d like to wear ($5 gym shoes, $10 jeans, $25 jogging pants!)
  • Share adoptable pets in your company newsletter!
