Individual Dog Sponsorships

Iditarod Checkpoint Sponsorships

Postcards from Nome


Individual Dog Sponsorships:

Our racing sled dogs are world class athletes, and they get treated as such. With top of the line nutrition, supplements, racing gear and veterinary care, the life of an Iditarod sled dog is costly. By sponsoring one of our racing dogs, you help defer some of those expenses which gives us the opportunity to solely focus on training and individualized care of the race team. Each sponsorship will include a personal photograph of your sponsored dog as well as updates throughout the season. View available race dogs for sponsorship by clicking the links below!

Iditarod Checkpoint Sponsorship 

Support Stump Jumpin’ Kennel DURING Iditarod 2018! This year the Iditarod will take place on the Southern Route totaling 23 checkpoints. Each year dropbags are sent to every check point with the necessary gear and food to supply both musher and dogs with what they need at that particular checkpoint and en route to the next. This is a crucial part to the race and we would be honored to have our fans and supporters contribute! Each checkpoint will be priced at $200 and you are allowed to sponsor as many as you wish.

Choose a checkpoint from the lists below, and use the secure PayPal button to sponsor that checkpoint. This will inform us which checkpoint to put your name on. To choose an additional check point(s) just pick another before you check out and it will be added to your shopping cart. Note that you do NOT need a PayPal account to use your credit card.
