Grant Opportunities

Thank you for all you do to help animals in your community. Completing the Petco Foundation application is the required initial step for the Foundation to consider making an investment in your organization and your lifesaving efforts.

Grant applications are categorized by organization type to better enable us to review requests. Current grant opportunities are available for the following types of organizations:

  • 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; and
  • Non-profit organizations that are primarily foster-based rescues.

For the organization types listed above, our 2014 grant application period will end on September 10, 2014 with decisions made by December 31, 2014.

Thereafter, there will be two grant cycles available during each year with decisions made in June and December. Applicants seeking a June decision must apply no later than March 1. Applicants seeking a December decision must apply no later than September 1. Applicants may submit one proposal per grant cycle. Please see Application for Support for further information.

Grant opportunities will become available for other organizations later in the year. 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. Completing the incorrect application may prevent you from applying through a more applicable future grant application. We expect that future applications will be provided for the following types of organizations:

  • Spay/neuter clinics;
  • Community Cat support and TNR organizations;
  • Service and therapy animal organizations;
  • Pet cancer research or cancer funding support organizations; and
  • Other animal welfare organizations as determined by the Foundation.

We do not fund the following:

  • Individuals;
  • Organizations outside the United States; and
  • Non-profit organizations whose primary mission is not related to animal welfare.
