Underground Elephant Continues Fostering Deep Relationship with San Diego Humane Society

CEO Jason Kulpa opens company doors in support of animal welfare

SAN DIEGO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Underground
Elephant
, a digital marketing company located in downtown San Diego,
has continued its efforts to support San Diego Humane Society by opening
the doors of its award-winning office space and volunteering at the
upcoming Walk for Animals.

On Wednesday, April 19, San Diego Humane Society joined Underground
Elephant at its headquarters located in the heart of East Village,
offering a space optimized for open and collaborative culture.
Underground Elephant has been a leading supporter of San Diego Humane
Society since its founding in 2008.

In 2013, Underground Elephant donated $25,000 to the nonprofit, which
helped fund the creation of new homes for the more than 7,500 stray and
surrendered animals that San Diego Humane Society cares for each year. A
portion of the donation was also used to provide medical care for the
animals. This year, the team will be partnering with San Diego Humane
Society for the 8th time on their annual Walk for Animals.

“San Diego Humane Society does wonderful things for animals, and in
doing so they have made San Diego a better city,” said Jason Kulpa, CEO
of Underground Elephant. “San Diego has consistently been recognized as
one of the best cities for dog-lovers and one of the top 10
dog-friendliest cities in America, a lot of which can be attributed to
the efforts of San Diego Humane Society. We are proud to be affiliated
with an organization that believes so strongly in their cause.”

Supporting charitable organizations is inherent to the Underground
Elephant culture and the company is proud to be affiliated with one of
such importance in San Diego. Jason Kulpa, CEO and Founder of
Underground Elephant, previously served as a board member of San Diego
Humane Society.

“Getting involved with charitable organizations is at the core of who we
are at UE,” said Amy Zebrowski, Head of HR at Underground Elephant. “We
love animals, which is why we also instituted Dog Fridays where
employees can bring their pets into the office. Additionally, we
recognize the importance and value of San Diego Humane Society’s
commitment to keeping San Diego at zero euthanasia of healthy and
treatable animals.”

“We’ve been extremely fortunate to have the support of Underground
Elephant for many years,” said Jennifer Grantham, Sr. Director of
Philanthropy for San Diego Humane Society. “In addition to contributing
funding to support the animals in our community, Underground Elephant
has provided a tremendous amount of marketing support to our
organization throughout our partnership. Its assistance has proven
invaluable in helping us maintain awareness in the community and we are
incredibly grateful for their time, financial support and talents.
Community support and volunteerism is a critical component to our
success and ability to accomplish our mission of ensuring and improving
animal welfare in San Diego.”

The Walk for Animals is Saturday, May 6 at NTC Park in Liberty Station.
By getting involved, starting a team and fundraising, San Diegans can
make a direct impact on ensuring that every animal in San Diego is safe.
