Future Grant Opportunities - January 2015

Sheltering & Adoptions
For animal welfare organizations performing sheltering and adoptions, we will have 2 grant cycles per year, with decisions made in June and December. Applicants seeking a June decision must apply between January 15th and March 1st. Applicants seeking a December decision must apply between July 15th and September 1st. Organizations may apply for any type of funding, but will only be allowed one application per grant cycle. This one application may have several funding purposes including event sponsorship.

The following organizations are eligible to apply:

  • Animal Control agencies and non-profit organizations responsible for animal control field support and sheltering services.
  • Non-profit organizations responsible for animal control sheltering services but not field support (via contract or otherwise).
  • SPCA/Humane Societies and other non-profits that provide care and adoption services for animals in a sheltering facility.
  • Non-profit organizations that are primarily foster-based rescues.

Grant opportunities for other organizations will become available at a later date. If your organization is primarily one of the types listed below, we advise you to wait until the appropriate application is available on our website.

We do not fund the following:

  • Individuals.
