RedRover and Sheltering Animals and Families Together (SAF-T) - RedRover Relief Program
Grants of up to $20,000 to USA nonprofit domestic violence shelters to collaborate with local animal welfare organizations to offer off-site housing for pets of shelter beneficiaries. Partner organizations could include rescue sanctuaries or animal shelters. Funding will be used to build housing at the animal shelter facility specifically reserved for animals whose owners are staying at the domestic violence shelter.
Grant funds may be used to pay for building materials and supplies.
Especially encouraged are shelters in Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Maine, Mississippi, Nebraska, New Hampshire, Rhode Island and West Virginia to apply for Safe Housing grants as there are currently no pet-friendly domestic violence shelters in these states.
