Become a Sponsor!

Corporate sponsorship is a great way to promote and associate your business with an organization with a reputation as leaders in the animal welfare movement in Utah. UAAC holds several fundraising events each year that target pet-loving people from all across the Wasatch Front, in addition to the year-round funding opportunities available at our shelter. Sponsorship is available at all levels and can also include in-kind donations.

For additional information on how to partner with UAAC, contact Nancy via email at nanjodeesch@gmail.com. We will be happy to discuss various ways you and your business can lend your support. At UAAC, we appreciate any and all opportunities to customize sponsorship experiences for our business and community leaders.
