Indraloka welcomes corporate partners who are able to contribute financial resources. We offer customized recognition packages to share your kindness with our network and would be pleased to work with you to create recognition that meets your needs and highlights your community support. In addition to general operating funds which can be used where the Sanctuary needs it most, we are happy to direct your funds to a project or event that aligns with your philanthropic goals. Some of these projects are:
Our annual event celebrating life welcomes nearly 200 individuals onto Sanctuary grounds to participate in a Feast for the Birds, brief program and a delicious chef-prepared plant-based meal. Guests take home a “goody bag” valued at over $125 of plant-based, cruelty-free, donated products. ThanksLiving focuses on a better understanding of food and how what we choose to eat makes a difference. ThanksLiving offers several sponsorship levels with varying opportunities to engage your organization’s staff, network and brand.
At Indraloka, we believe in investing in our future through education and engagement of young people. Hopeful Heroes features several programs to engage with young people and students from a variety of backgrounds including at-risk and homeless youth. Hopeful Heroes is an EITC-approved program. By sponsoring Hopeful Heroes, your organization is ensuring that the next generation is exposed to opportunities to grow in compassion and love—all while helping animals in need.
This capital project is focused on completing the building of our new campus in Dalton and making sure that the animals already at Indraloka have the space and facilities needed to ensure their safety, health and happiness. By sponsoring Building Sanctuary, your organization has the opportunity to invest in the future of the sanctuary, increase our ability to rescue more animals and welcome more humans. In addition, our buildings were all designed with conserving resources in mind. Several naming opportunities are still available.ducts.

NEPA Rescue Veterinary Clinic:
With a shortage of veterinarians across Northeast PA, Indraloka has often had to drive hours to find a caring doctor with knowledge of farm animal care, sometimes with animals in great pain. We recognize that this is a challenge not just for us, but for other rescues in our area. To help meet this need, Indraloka is working to hire a full-time veterinary doctor, build a complete veterinary clinic and hospital and offer that care at cost to our neighboring sanctuaries and rescues. Sponsoring this project would highlight your organization’s love of all animals and your understanding that specialized care is critical.
Your company’s annual support of general operating funds goes to directly support the care of the animals and maintenance of our operational activities. By committing to annual giving, you are helping to ensure that we have the resources needed—year after year—to take care of the animals that call Indraloka home.
We are looking forward to the day when we can welcome volunteers back to the sanctuary in groups but until it is safe to do so, we have developed several opportunities for volunteers to engage with Indraloka while maintaining a social distance, being outdoors, or engaging remotely. We can engage your organization’s staff individually or as a group, depending on your volunteer and community goals.
Our gratitude volunteers spend time saying Thank You to the wonderful people who support Indraloka. It may be donors, guests, animal care volunteers or anyone who gives of their time or personal resources to make sure the animals are well cared for. Gratitude volunteers make phone calls or write personal thank you notes and can complete tasks on their own time from any location. We share a list of names, addresses and/or phone numbers as appropriate. Note cards and postage are supplied by Indraloka. Volunteers making phone calls would need to use a personal or business phone as appropriate. All Gratitude Volunteers are provided either a phone or note script.
Skills Based Volunteers:
We are often in need of graphic designers, web developers and writers to assist with our media and fundraising efforts. Skills-based volunteers are often needed on a project-by-project basis. Each project has its own timeline and schedule but all volunteers would be directed by the appropriate member of Indraloka staff to ensure they had a contact to connect with when questions or challenges arise.
Animal Care Volunteers:
Caring for farm animals is hard work! We often need help cleaning stalls, repairing barns and plenty of people to help keep the animals company. This is hard, heavy labor but is extremely rewarding, especially when a sheep or pig gives you a nuzzle and a cuddle to say “thank you”.
In Kind Needs
While financial resources are always important, there are several items that Indraloka accepts throughout the year. Corporate teams can organize a “drive” to engage employees or, if appropriate for your business, these items can often be donated in bulk as an in-kind corporate sponsorship. Items in need are:
- Cat food (preferably containing no red dye)
- Pumpkins (seasonally only—undecorated and uncarved)
- Fresh Produce
- Copier paper
- Clean towels and blankets
- Veterinary Medical equipment (contact our office for details)
Other Ways to Engage
If none of the above meet your engagement or community support needs, we welcome the chance to further discuss your goals and ideas. We are committed to connecting with our community and finding opportunities that help us both.
Please connect with us and let us know how we can be of more help.
