Business Partners

Become a Corporate Partner


When your company partners with OHS, it is a win-win situation. That's because being a good corporate citizen is also a good business decision.


OHS regularly ranks as one the region's favorite charities. Established in 1868, we have over 1,000 volunteers and more than 20,000 members.


OHS relies solely on voluntary donations and does not receive any tax dollars, government money, or portions of donations made to national humane organizations.

Corporate Giving Alternatives


Every company has their own unique way to support OHS.


Some choose to delegate giving decisions to a Giving Committee. Others empower their marketing/PR department or agency to make giving decisions. Still others encourage employees  to raise funds through a variety of activities such as "Jeans Days," photo contests, and special events. Some companies pool customer/client donations during specific time periods.


And some companies let their favorite four-legged friends tell them who to support!
