Host an Event or Drive
Thank you for your interest in supporting the Humane Society of Sarasota County. Friends like you make it possible for us to make a difference in the lives of homeless pets in our community. We receive no federal funding, nor are we supported by any national humane organization. We rely on the generosity of our donors to continue our mission of saving lives.
• The Humane Society of Sarasota County is not responsible for any injuries, damages, or theft sustained
by event coordinators, volunteers, participants, or any other individuals related to a third-party event. We
cannot provide liability insurance or coverage for third-party events.
• Events and event organizers must comply with all local, state, and federal laws and obtain any necessary
permits or licenses.
As a fundraiser being promoted as benefiting HSSC, all proceeds (net revenue) after deducting expenses must be sent to HSSC. A paper donation form will be provided.
There are plenty of ideas for creative fundraising! Here is a list of different activities you could do to help raise money for the shelter:

We are grateful for the awareness, support, and funds raised through third-party efforts. However, due to our limited resources, we must carefully consider our level of involvement with these events. We ask to be notified at least 30 days before an event so that we can make sure your expectations are met, provide additional promotional support to the best of our ability, and give you proper recognition. Depending on the time of year, we may be able to accommodate requests with less notice.
Absolutely! You can create a Facebook Fundraiser on behalf of HSSC and set your own fundraising goal for your family and friends. HSSC will receive the funds within 90 days.
Pet Supply Drives, The Resort at Longboat Key, Sun-N-Fun RV Resort Art and Photography Day, The Black Dog Adoption Day, Sunset Cadillac Donation Drives, Chili Cook-Off with The Red Barn Bar, Birthday Parties for a Purpose, and oh so much more! HSSC loves when local people and businesses give back.
HSSC has two signature fundraising events each year: Paws on the Catwalk Luncheon and the Humane Society Golf Tournament, as well as several smaller events. You can show your support by sponsoring an HSSC event. See all upcoming events.
