Request a Grant Writer

Grants averaging $5,000 and grants averaging $10,000 to USA, Canada, and International nonprofit organizations for animal welfare activities. Applicants must contact program staff prior to submitting an application. The Foundation seeks to alleviate pain, suffering, and fear of animals, and to promote animal protection and the prevention of cruelty to animals. Organizations must be located within the United States, Canada, Latin America, the British Isles, or the Republic of Ireland.

Funding Priorities:

  • Geographically: The Americas and the British Isles, with special emphasis on those communities which are the most underserved and the most challenged.
  • Programmatically:
    • Cats only in the United States and Canada – The tragedy of cat overpopulation and homelessness in this country results in intense and immense suffering due to disease, starvation, and inhumane practices by some local communities and agencies. Funding emphasis is on sterilization and vaccination primarily in rural or underserved communities.
    • Dogs outside of United States (Latin America) or living in First Nations/Native American communities – Emphasis on sterilization, vaccination, and humane euthanasia.
    • Wildlife – Primarily mountain lions, bobcats, coyotes, and black bears, funding only those programs which protect through ethical-based research and advocacy/educational campaigns.
    • Marine Life – Emphasis on addressing marine mammal issues, health and well-being and anti-captivity (dolphins and orcas).
    • Sanctuary for Captive Wild Animals – Captive wild animal sanctuaries should be verified or accredited by the Global Federation of Animal Sanctuaries.
    • Wildlife Rehabilitation – Emphasis on hands-on animal care and well-being (emergency rescue, food, medications, housing improvements).
