Event Request

Thank you for your interest in partnering with Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association on your upcoming event!

Your efforts to make a difference in the lives of homeless and abused animals in our community are greatly appreciated. Please take a moment to fill out our Event Planning Form so that we can better assist you.

KCHA receives many requests throughout the year from organizations inviting us to partner with them. Due to our limited resources, we must carefully consider our level of involvement with each of these initiatives.

Please email angie@adoptcharleston.com and be specific in providing us with details regarding your event. We will contact you or your organization with confirmation details specific to our participation in your event. While we may be able to accommodate requests with less notice, we truly appreciate 30 days advance notice of your event. This allows us to secure staff and volunteer resources to help make your event a success!

KCHA is a not-for-profit animal welfare organization relying on donations for 80% of our budget. We are a private, 501c3 agency and do not receive operating support from national organizations. We count on generous friends like you to help fulfill our mission of saving the lives of Kanawha County's animals.

Again, we greatly appreciate your request for our participation in your event. Please let us know if you have any questions regarding the form.

Our Mission: Kanawha-Charleston Humane Association is committed to saving the lives of animals through sheltering, adoption, foster care, spay and neuter programs, cruelty prevention, and community outreach.
