Paws for a Purpose Seeks Hosts

Blue Ridge Humane Society and local businesses are collaborating to offer fundraising events and fun activities April 12th-14th, as part of our 2024 Paws for a Purpose fundraising weekend.

This signature event serves as our means of engaging with the community, empowering others to contribute as much or as little as they desire. Collective efforts amount to a significant impact to our mission of ensuring the highest quality of life for animals.

Businesses are encouraged to host fundraisers throughout the weekend, and could include:

  • Donating a percentage of sales
  • Hosting a ticketed event
  • Hosting a pint night or yappy hour
  • Creating a party with activities, raffles, or contests with proceeds benefitting BRHS

Public fundraising events will be promoted on the Paws for a Purpose event page and our social media channels. Participating businesses will also share plans with their customers and community.

Individuals wishing to host a fundraiser during the Paws for a Purpose weekend are welcome to do so! Team up with a friend to co-host or hold your fundraiser at your favorite restaurant or community clubhouse. Possible fundraisers include a sit-down formal dinner, potluck, block party, brunch, tea party, pet supply drive, and more!
