Want to take the extra step in supporting your local, New Braunfels animal shelter? Well, then we have so many opportunities for you through our ambassador programs! Our program objective is to foster a sense of community involvement in regards to animal welfare in that support from local business creates the partnerships needed to help end homelessness for companion animals.

Kennel Sponsorships are $1500 a year, and they can be billed monthly or annually. A prominent plaque with your business information and logo is placed on the group room door or the individual kennel. Any kennel sponsorship will automatically be listed on our Ambassador Page on our website.
Foster Kitten Hub
HSNBA provides housing and necessities for kittens ages 5-10 weeks of age (foster period), and once they are fixed, the kittens will be available for adoption. Your business ensures these kittens get exposed to a wide variety of environments and situations by reaching a totally new and different demographic of potential supporters and adopters.
HSNBA is always looking for matching donations for The Big Give, a HUGE yearly fundraiser. The Big Give raises money for local non profits on one massive 24 hour drive. Past Big Gives have brought in anywhere from $2,000 to $8,000, so by securing matching donors, it can dramatically increase our donations for our Big Give drive. Matching donations need to be at least $500 to qualify as an HSNBA Donor Match Ambassador.
Silent Auction Items
We have a few events throughout the year needing silent auction donation items. Our biggest even is “Pups and Pints”. The Silent Auction will be the big fundraiser for this event and we are actively seeking exciting and unique items for the silent auction!
Sponsor Pet Of The Week
Sponsor the “Pet of the Week” in our local newspaper, the Herald Zeitung. When sponsoring Pet of the Week, your business logo is prominently displayed in the ad. Your business can choose level of sponsorship:
- $50/ Week
- $175/ Month
- $2000/ Year
If your business signs up for any 3 of the following, you will receive a monthly social media shout out for one year, HSNBA Ambassador window cling, and will be listed on our website’s Shelter Ambassador page with your logo and link back to your website
Host An Adoption Event
Coordinated with the Events Calendar, we can plan an event that can get exposure for our pets in foster care at different venues around town. Some restrictions may apply as the resources needed to organize an event need to be less than or equal to amount of traffic expected at event.
Share Pet Of The Week
HSNBA maintains a running list of folks willing to post an HSNBA Pet of the Week on their social media outlets like Facebook and Instagram, and we would love for you to be a part of that! We will send the Pet of the Week out to you on a weekly basis. This small way of helping us will give the shelter exposure to new audiences, and your company may just be the one to find an adopter!
Host A Donation Jar
Show your support for HSNBA and our shelter animals by being a hub for a donation jar! We currently have jars at various locations around New Braunfels, but we would love to expand this program and add Shelter Ambassador Stickers to your business’ front window/door. Your business will also have educational info on HSNBA and shelter animals lying next to the donation jar station.
Host A Donation Drive
Depending on the time of year, we have specific “Wish Lists” to share with folks willing to do a donation drive and the subsequent shout outs on our social media. For example, during kitten season, you can do a drive for kitten milk replacer and bottles! For our dogs, we may need a refill of martingale collars. We will let you know our top needed items to help make your donation drive more of a success.
Food Truck Fridays
The Humane Society would like to host a food truck each Friday for “Food Truck Friday” throughout the Spring and Summer. It would be a great way to get some cross promotion for both parties. We have PLENTY OF ROOM at 3353 Morningside and over 18,000 FB followers to help promote the event.
