Denver Animal Protection can help support your event if you notify staff at least four weeks in advance by:

  • Sending brochures
  • Adding your event to our online event calendar (for events that anticipate raising $500 or more)

Please make these requests in the fundraising event form. You must provide all event details, including the address of where to send brochures four weeks in advance.

Due to the number of requests we receive, Denver Animal Protection cannot:

  • Send a DAP representative to participate in all events
  • Distribute posters or literature for your event
  • Supply adoptable animals for your event
  • Send emails or promote your event on social media

Please send all funds to Denver Animal Protection within 30 days of the event.

If you wish to use Denver Animal Protection’s logo and name, all promotional materials must be submitted for approval prior to distribution. Although we will reply as quickly as possible, you can generally expect an approval or request for edits within five business days of sending.

The event must be promoted in a way that avoids the appearance of Denver Animal Protection endorsing any product, firm, organization or service.

Denver Animal Protection reserves the right to decline association with an organization or event for any reason.
