Shelter Outreach Services of Ohio (SOS of Ohio) is a low-cost, nonprofit spay and neuter clinic serving low income families and animal rescue organizations in the greater Columbus area. Our mission is to improve the quality of life of shelter animals and companion animals of low income families by providing affordable veterinary care, and to help reduce the homeless pet population through spay/neuter programs. Since we opened our doors in March of 2009, SOS of Ohio has spayed and neutered over 25,000 dogs, cats and rabbits. We work with over 100 local rescues and provide transport services to more rural areas in the surrounding counties. When you help us, you also help the low income families and rescues we serve.
The SOS of Ohio's Annual Fundraiser will be held on Sunday, November 11, 2012 in the ballroom at the Brookside Golf & Country Club, 2770 West Dublin Granville Road, Columbus, Ohio 43235. This year we are anticipating 200+ guests.The proceeds from this year's event will benefit our Good Sam Fund. This fund assists owners that qualify by helping to cover medical care for their pets beyond a spay or neuter. In 2011, we were able to help more than 50 pets through the Good Sam Fund. With your help, we know that this year will be very special!
We are offering sponsorships to businesses in the community to help us cover expenses for our annual fundraiser and we hope that you will want to be a part of this exciting event. There are four sponsorship levels with Bronze Level starting at a donation of just $250. It is our hope that the wide range of sponsorship levels will let even the smallest local business be a part of helping us continue our mission to help the animals of Central Ohio.
If interested, please contact us as soon as possible for additional information on sponsorship levels and benefits for your company associated with each level. We are specifically interested in partnering with businesses that fall into the following categories:
* Locally owned businesses with an emphasis on small, women-owned and minority-owned businesses.
* Pet Supply Stores - must not sell dogs or cats, but rather work with rescues and shelters to place animals for adoption.
* Larger nationwide businesses that have corporate offices in Columbus and are active in community events.
* Mission that is consistent with ours.
