Make spirits bright this year by sponsoring an animal in City Paper’s Adopt-A-Thon. For just $60 the animal of your choosing from a local shelter will be featured in our December 19th issue, right in time for the holidays. Our last Adopt-A-Thon placed almost all of the 22 sponsored animals in permanent homes within just 3 weeks and generated over $500 for local shelter organizations like the Charleston Animal Society and Pet Helpers!

Sponsored animals receive color picture ads 4 times the size of our normal listings, a $150 value. We drastically reduce the cost of these ads to make them affordable to as many people as possible. The ads are be paid for by people/companies/organizations sponsoring the animal for adoption and the sponsoring party is featured in the ad alongside the animal. A portion of the cost of sponsorship goes directly to the rescue organization where the animal can be adopted.

Consider sponsoring an animal through your business, in honor of your furry friend, or for the animal lover who already has enough pets.

Here is your opportunity to make this holiday season joyful in more ways than one!
