Find Out About New Grant Opportunities!
We offer grants to help Petfinder members prepare for and recover from disaster, vaccinate and spay or neuter the pets in their care, and more.
Train to Adopt
The Petfinder Foundation is accepting grant applications for the Train to Adopt program. The Train to Adopt program was established with Sue Sternberg, to create shelters that are committed to the behavioral, emotional, and mental heath of the dogs in their care. From the time of intake through their journey into their forever home, providing good quality of life, training and behavioral help to enhance their chance for adoption, lower length of stay and decrease their chances for return.
A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant
The Petfinder Foundation is working with Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc., and The Animal Rescue Site to provide various vaccinations to adoption organizations. They join us in the belief that there is nothing more important than reducing the number of adoptable pets euthanized because of illness and decreasing the spread of illness at a facility by providing important vaccinations.
P.L.A.Y. Pet Beds
The Petfinder Foundation has partnered with P.L.A.Y. to help give shelter pets beds through their Warm Bellies Initiative. They join us in the belief that every pet, regardless of whether they are a celebrity pooch or a pup waiting in a shelter for his forever home, deserves a warm and cozy place to sleep.
Thundershirt for Dogs
The Petfinder Foundation is partnering with Thundershirt to award grants of product to shelters for use with their shelter dogs. The Thundershirt alleviates stress symptoms in over 80% of the dogs who use it. When used at a shelter, the Thundershirt can help dogs relax, reduce the behavioral issues associated with stress and make the dog more adoptable. If needed, the Thundershirt then follows the dog to her new home, providing her with a soothing pressure that should help to reduce her anxiety and improve the adoption experience for both dog and owner.
Sponsor a Pet
The Sponsor A Pet program encourages the community to help homeless pets by sponsoring their shelter and care until the day they find a forever home. When someone has found a homeless pet that has touched their heart but they are unable to provide that pet their forever home this program gives them the avenue to help. It costs an average of $150 a day to provide care for a homeless pet while they await their forever home. Even a small contribution can give a homeless pet the chance that they deserve. You will receive a Sponorship button on each of your pets’ pages on Petfinder. The donations collected through this system will be mailed via paper check to your organization once per quarter.
