A Unique Fundraising Event

The Shelter Slumber Pawty is a collaborative fundraising event that brings together animal welfare organizations to raise funds and awareness. Each year, hundreds of animal lovers from across the globe spend ONE ENTIRE DAY living side-by-side with shelter animals. That’s right! Participants spend 24 hours eating, sleeping, and “pawting” with shelter pets! 

About the Pawty

In 2017, Gateway Pet Guardians (GPG) hosted the first Shelter Slumber Pawty.  Staff and volunteers spent 24 hours in kennels living side-by-side with shelter dogs and raised over $30,000! Since then, more shelters have joined the Pawty and collectively raised over $1.2M!
