The MSPCA-Angell serves many thousands of animals each year and maintains an engaged and dedicated donor database throughout New England. In addition to funding a good cause, MSPCA-Angell events traditionally draw significant media attention and signage opportunities.

Today’s top-performing companies recognize the value of corporate citizenship. The MSPCA-Angell has successfully worked with nationally-recognized companies such as Whole Foods Market and Hill’s Pet Nutrition to successfully incorporate a sponsorship program that positively impacts their corporate culture and reputation in the community.

The MSPCA-Angell will work directly with your company to build a program that meets the needs of your organization while giving back to the community.

Event Sponsorship

The MSPCA-Angell has the unique ability to host events that incorporate both animals and their two-legged friends. Our diverse events offer an opportunity for each individual corporate sponsor to brand their participation in a way that boosts employee morale, provides positive imagery for your organization and positively impacts your bottom line.

Whether it’s a black-tie Gala in the spring, a one-mile annual Walk for Animals around the Boston Common in the fall, or a Holiday Tree Lighting at the Prudential Center, the MSPCA-Angell offers a rewarding partnership to meet your goals. If you are interested in sponsoring a local adoption center event, check out our event sponsorship page.
