The Animal Haven


Thank you to all who supported The Animal Haven’s Walk-a-dog-a-thon Sunday, Oct 22!

It was a beautiful, sunny day.  A special shout out to the volunteer students from Quinnipiac University and the volunteers who brought our adoptable dogs to the event. And to all of our sponsors. Because of all of you, just over $5,000 was raised for the shelter animals. We hope you had as much fun as we did. View our photo gallery here.


Walk-A-Dog-Athon is the Animal Haven’s primary fundraising event each year.  The goal of this event is to raise the much needed funds for the shelter’s operating and veterinary expenses.  Our volunteers and staff work hard every day to provide homeless, sick, and mistreated pets with a fresh start, nutrition, medical attention and the love they need. Proceeds from this event will help The Animal Haven save the lives of over 300 homeless pets this year.

We are asking that you support The Animal Haven and be a sponsor of Walk-A-Dog-Athon. This is our 23rd year holding the event and we expect at least 150 people in attendance. The event will be publicized on our website and on our Facebook page which has approximately 6,500 likes. Being a sponsor is a great opportunity to publicize your business to the animal loving community of Greater New Haven. Our goal is to raise $7,000 from sponsorships.

Each sponsorship level provides different perks:
