Sponsors and Vendor Tables
Since 1997, Humane Tomorrow has changed the lives of thousands of homeless, abused, and unwanted animals by providing spay/neuter programs, adoption opportunities, and education to the public about animal welfare.
We ask you to support Fido Fest by becoming a sponsor! Proceeds from Fido Fest 2018 will help support these critical initiatives:
- The Mercy Fund, established in 1998 to allow us to help animals with injuries or illnesses whose cost far exceeds their adoption fees.
- Our Capital Fund, to reach our long-term goal of creating a center for adoption, rehabilitation, and education for people and animals.
- Love on Wheels, our dog relocation program that has saved over 2,500 dogs in four years, sending them from Texas shelters to partner shelters in the northeast.
Fido Fest offers a unique opportunity to promote your business and show your support of animals in your community. Sponsors are included in our marketing campaign which reaches the community through our website, social media, promotional items, email blasts (reaching thousands of adopters), volunteers and supporters, ads in local newspapers, and posters at local businesses. While some of the print marketing deadlines have passed, there is still an opportunity to sign up for a table and/or sponsor Fido Fest. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss.
Thank you to our Fido Fest 2018 Sponsors:
- Arts on the Go
- Bartonville Veterinary Center
- Big Doggie Duds
- CycleBar (Flower Mound)
- Poo B Gone
- Scout & Cellar (Nicole House)
The Fine Paw-rint
All dogs attending must be current on all vaccinations including Rabies and DHLPP. Dogs must be on leash and aggressive dogs will be asked to leave.
Flower Mound Animal Services will be doing FREE pet registration for town residents. Registering your pet with the town can assist in reuniting your four-legged family member with you in the event it is lost. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please bring proof of a current rabies vaccination in the form of a receipt or vaccination certificate.
