Host a Fundraiser

It’s takes more than time and love to run a shelter. Hosting a fundraiser to collect monetary donations or items for the shelter wishlist helps the Humane Society of El Paso to provide the utmost care that its rescues need until they find their forever homes.

Thank you for your interest in hosting an event on behalf of the Humane Society of El Paso! We are extremely grateful for the support we have received from the El Paso community. We refer to events hosted by a member of the community as 3rd party; we’ll work with you and support your event as we’re able, but you get to be in control of creating and running the show! While we would love to be present at every event, due to the volume of requests we receive, we are not able to accommodate every request.

**Please submit requests two months in advace of event date**

Please review our event levels listed below. Once you have determined which level suits your organization, please submit your request to scortez@hselpaso.com
