2019 Sponsorhip Opportunites

We would be honored if you would consider supporting Friends of Strays through a corporate/business sponsorship of one or more events this year. Each sponsorship level provides the opportunity for businesses to increase brand recognition in Pinellas County to a wide variety of audiences. This is also a great way to use your team building budget as three of our events are group/team friendly. We will work with you to ensure that your company finds value in the sponsorship you select.

In 2015, FOS started a community pet food panty as a way of keeping Pinellas pets with their families and out of local shelters and rescues. In our first year, we offered more than 100,000 pounds of pet food to qualified, low-income families in our community. Thanks to the generous donations from local stores, including Walmart and Target, we are able to supplement dog and cat food to families in need. We are always in need of cat food, dry and wet, every month.

Donations make this progam possible!
