Hosting a community event?

If you are organizing a community outreach event, such as a festival or vendor fair we would greatly appreciate you partnering with Rifle Animal Shelter.

Hosting a school fundraiser?

We would greatly appreciate you hosting a fundraiser. Collecting supplies or donations at your school or through your school group is a wonderful way to help the shelter animals! We're so lucky to have donors and supporters of all ages. It's never too early to start helping the animals of the Rifle Animal Shelter. There are so many ways to help; below are just a few ideas:

Bake Sale: Hold a bake sale with people food and animal food or open a lemonade stand.

Toys: Make cat and dog toys and sell them at your school.

Hold a pet food and supply drive at your school: Make posters announcing when the drive will be held, how food will be collected, and who will benefit from the event. Once a week, have members from the class take a decorated wagon around to pick up donations. This project can also be done with a neighborhood or church group or scouting troop.

Do a penny or change drive for pets: Put a container in your classroom, office or church and ask your friends, coworkers and classmates to bring in their pennies or change. Change really does add up!

Rummage Sale: Have your classmates and friends donate items to hold a rummage sale.

Walk neighborhood dogs for donations: Make sure to have your parents' permission and supervision.
