 The PAWS Chicago 5K is our most attended annual event, as well as the largest dog-friendly event in Chicago!  Our sponsors help us offset costs for our event by donating dollars, goods and services, so that more funds raised can go towards saving the lives of homeless animals.  We couldn't do this event without them!  In addition to supporting a lifesaving cause, sponsors love the PAWS 5K because it offers a unique and meaningful way to connect with fellow animal lovers. 

The PAWS Chicago 5K is also the ONLY PAWS event where sponsors are allowed direct marketing opportunities so this is a wonderful opportunity to have direct access PAWS supporters!  Sponsorship levels and benefits vary, with most including:
  • On-site presence with ability to distribute samples, products and materials
  • Complimentary entries for staff and/or clients
  • Logo placement at the event
  • Listing on our sponsorship page below
  • Logo on the back of our event t-shirt (levels Pet Lover and higher)
