New Rochelle Humane Society’s Westchester Police Officers & NRHS Shelter Pets Calendar
The New Rochelle Humane Society’s Westchester Police Officers & NRHS Shelter Pets Calendar will be coming out very soon!
Want to be part of an exciting Westchester project? Become a sponsor for our Police Officers & Shelter Pets 14-month Calendar. Our goal is to get enough sponsors to cover the entire printing cost so that all of the proceeds of the sale will go to the care for our shelter animals. A $250 sponsorship includes the sponsors’ ad printed on one of the months.
We plan to print a minimum of 1,000 calendars.
We have representation from the following communities that NRHS services:
New Rochelle, Eastchester, Elmsford, Greenburgh, Harrison, Irvington, Larchmont, Pelham, Pelham Manor, Rye, Rye Brook, Scarsdale & the Village of Mamaroneck.
Sponsors not only will get great exposure for their business, but will help us promote animal adoption, connecting the New Rochelle Humane Society, the participating police departments, & the local businesses with their community.
A million tail-wagging Thank You’s!
