Looking to sponsor APS’s best dressed event of the year?

We rely on the generosity of our partners and sponsors to help us build a brighter future for our animals through this event. Your sponsorship will help offset the cost of the event, allowing all proceeds raised before, during, and after November 18th to go directly to the care and support of the thousands of animals we see each year. Our expectations for this year’s Tails of Twilight are to have 400 enthusiastic guests in the ballroom, enjoying an evening of celebration, community, and fun, all to support Durham’s only community shelter. The night will be full of engaging, entertaining, and educational moments that will bring our biggest supporters together to help our animals in need. In addition to the evening’s festivities, we will showcase your business and your support online, through our social media, websites, and email blasts.
