Kent County’s animal shelter launches business sponsorship program

WORTON — The Animal Care Shelter for Kent County is launching a year-long business sponsorship program.

Developed to support the shelter’s mission to rescue, rehabilitate and “rehome” animals in need, Biz Barks provides regional businesses with the opportunity to contribute to the welfare of animals in Kent County (Maryland) while receiving exclusive benefits and recognition at various sponsorship levels.

The Biz Barks sponsorship program offers businesses the chance to make a difference in the lives of our community’s vulnerable animals while gaining valuable exposure for their brand.

With sponsorship levels ranging from “Visionary” to “Companion,” businesses of all sizes can participate and showcase their commitment to social responsibility and community activism.

Sponsorship benefits at the highest levels include exclusive invitations to Kennel Club events, special event tickets and logo placement on event banners, while all levels enjoy social media shout-outs, website recognition and quarterly newsletter mentions — among other extras.

Additionally, sponsors will receive recognition in the ACSKC’s event tents and the annual report, further amplifying their support for animal welfare initiatives.

“At the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County, we believe in the power of collective action to create positive change,” Richard Keaveney, the ACSKC’s executive director, said in the April 16 news release announcing the launch of Biz Barks.

He added, “By joining our sponsorship program, businesses can align themselves with our progressive programs, such as animal care initiatives, food pantry services, lost and found assistance, and rehoming support services.”

Businesses interested in becoming sponsors of the Animal Care Shelter for Kent County through the Biz Barks program are encouraged to contact Keaveney at for more information.

The Animal Care Shelter for Kent County, located in Worton, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that has served the homeless animals of Kent County since 1962.

As an open-admission shelter, the ACSKC’s mission is to provide every adoptable pet in its care with food, shelter, medical attention and love until they’re home.

In 2022, the ACSKC completed construction of a state-of-the-art facility complete with a medical suite, enrichment spaces including five play yards and two outdoor catios, and a quarter-mile dog walking trail.
