Corporate Volunteer Program - Manhattan

 
  • Contributor: $750 donation
    • Your company would be responsible for raising $750 in donations (monetary or otherwise). For your donation, 10 employees would come to the shelter for a 30-minute socialization session at the shelter with an adoptable pup. We love having volunteers not only snuggle up with our animals and provide them love and support, but to also help them work on basic obedience commands like sit & down. The enrichment & training ultimately makes our animals more adoptable and ready for their new homes!
  • Bronze Sponsor: $1,000 - $2,500 donation (2-3 hours in length)
    • For our volunteer experience, we will first give the group an orientation about Bideawee and all we do as well as a tour of the facility. We will then start our activity of helping clean the facility. We need to make sure our lobby and interaction rooms are clean and safe for all the people and animals coming in, so this is hugely important activity! We can also incorporate creating folders for our New Volunteer Orientations or putting together Adoption Kits. Lastly, we will have enrichment & training with our animals. We love having volunteers not only snuggle up with our animals and provide them love and support, but to also help them work on basic obedience commands like sit & down. The enrichment & training ultimately makes our animals more adoptable and ready for their new homes!
  • Silver Sponsor: $5,000 donation (2-3 hours in length)
    • For our volunteer experience, we will first give the group an orientation about Bideawee and all we do as well as a tour of the facility. We will then start our activities of stuffing Kong toys and/or making no-sew blankets/cat and dog beds. This activity is important because it allows us to create comfy bedding for the animals to snuggle into while in their kennels. Lastly, we will have enrichment & training with our animals. We love having volunteers not only snuggle up with our animals and provide them love and support, but to also help them work on basic obedience commands like sit & down. The enrichment & training ultimately makes our animals more adoptable and ready for their new homes!
  • Gold Sponsor: $10,000 donation (times may vary depending on group size)
    • We’ll bring the fun to you! Volunteers will bring supplies for your employees to stuff Kong toys or make No-sew blankets. While completing the activity, your employees will learn about Bideawee and all that we do. This session also includes a Cuddle Event! Cuddle events help relieve stress in employees while providing puppies with socialization that will help them get adopted and find their forever homes. Cuddle Events are 1-hour in length. OR
    • For a $10,000 donation, we can train up to 10 of your employees to lead group volunteer sessions throughout the year. With this package your company would get to schedule one volunteer session per month (not including the training session) that your trained employees would get to lead.
  • Platinum Sponsor: $15,000 or greater donation
    • Your company can sponsor an Adoption Eventr! These events allow us to bring several of our adoptable animals to a specific location to be adopted. Up to 50 volunteers come the company can volunteer at the event to help hand out treats and promote the event in the surrounding area.
      OR
    • Your company can sponsor a renovation project at our facility! This project would go toward bettering our environment for our animals, our patrons, and/or our community. We would promote your efforts on our social media platforms and work with you on providing a fulfilling volunteer component for your company.
