Display a Donation Can
A great way of supporting the MCHA and its work is to display one of our
donation cans in your place of business. One of our volunteers will check
and empty the can on a regular basis. Call 335.9453 or e-mail email@example.com for more
Sponsor or Display Adoptable Posters
You can help us help the animals by sponsoring our posters of adoptable animals.
Each week the MCHA produces photos of adoptable animals available at the City of
Bloomington Animal Shelter. These photos are distributed throughout our
community at over 100 locations. These posters truly help saves lives by
showcasing animals in need of good, lifelong homes.
We need your help to continue this important undertaking. When you sponsor a
week's worth of posters, we can feature your business logo, address, phone,
hours, etc., on the posters and on our website. The posters are viewed by
thousands of residents weekly. Cost of sponsorship is just a dollar a poster.
Sponsor several or sponsor all 100 for $100.
