Workplace Giving

Small businesses and corporate offices have a tremendous impact on the number of dogs that One Tail can rescue each year. From aligning your brand with our lifesaving mission, to supporting your employees and their charitable passions, there are many benefits of partnering with our organization.

General contributions are always appreciated, but here a few other ways to save lives with OTAT:

Event Sponsorship

From the Annual Tiny Dog 500 to our formal gala, Houndstooth Ball, your unique brand could be part of one of our many fundraising events! Learn more here.

Program Sponsorship

Become our official spay/neuter sponsor, donate office supplies, or be part of the next lifesaving program! There are endless opportunities for your company to join our work, and we can help you find the best “fit.”

Matching Donations

Stand by your employees and their commitment to giving back, by offering to match their charitable contributions dollar-for-dollar.

“OTAT in the Office” Days

Host an adoptable dog and OTAT representative in the office for the day. Employees can learn about OTAT’s work throughout Chicago and ways to get involved. A suggested minimum donation of $100 is greatly appreciated for these days.

With contributions of $1,000 and up, unique engagement and marketing opportunities can be planned for you company, such as group volunteer days and behind the scenes experiences with our dogs.

Other ideas we love:
  • Organize a supply drive using our wish-list
  • Set up donation jars and collect loose change
  • Sponsor adoptions for a weekend
  • 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!)


If you’d like help planning a unique giving experience for your workplace, or have further questions, please contact Cara Schwalbach at cara@onetail.org.

Thank you!
