Individual and business Ramble sponsors are needed to make the 2020 Virtual Ramble a success. The generosity and support of our sponsors and supporters last year enabled us to rescue and take care of over 100 hounds.  Please join us in celebrating our 24 years of rescue work and over 3,200 hounds saved by becoming a Ramble sponsor! 

Sponsorships start at $100 and each sponsor receives a thank-you gift and a BROOD hand sanitizer. More information is in our Sponsorship Packet
