For Shelters

The Petfinder Foundation supports thousands of animal welfare organization that are members of Petfinder. We provide direct funding as well as training/education and grants of equipment and supplies so that hundreds of thousands of homeless pets have happier lives and so that the thousands of shelter and rescue folks who work with them can better perform their jobs.

The first step in being eligible for grants from the Petfinder Foundation is to become a member of Petfinder. If you are a shelter or rescue group who is not a member, please register here to get started!
