Host a Fundraiser

The Humane Society of Rome is fortunate for the great generosity and support of people and organizations throughout the Mohawk Valley and Central NY. Often, people spend their own time, money, and effort organizing a fundraiser to benefit our shelters. These fundraisers vary in type and size, but include lemonade stands, car washes, golf tournaments, and more.

If you are interested in organizing and hosting your own event to benefit the Humane Society of Rome Please feel free to Contact [email protected]. check out our tips to help make your event a success. Remember to let us know about your event so that we may add to our calendar of events and post on social media.
