FOX’s Cause for Paws Grant
This grant is made possible by individual donors who watched FOX’S CAUSE FOR PAWS: AN ALL STAR DOG SPECIAL as well as FOX Broadcasting Company and Michael Levitt Productions. Donors to the fund as well as the teams at FOX and Michael Levitt Productions join us in the belief that there is nothing more important than encouraging people to choose to adopt one of the more than eight million rescue animals currently in the U.S. shelter system, patiently waiting to become part of a loving family in a forever home.
Grants from the Cause for Paws program will be awarded to organizations that help rescue dogs find loving, forever homes.
Emergency Medical Grant
The Petfinder Foundation Emergency Medical grant program is to assist Petfinder members who are caring for a pet that needs special veterinary care in order to become adoptable. Grants from this program can be used to cover expenses due to dental work, emergency surgery, etc. up to $1,000. This program will not provide grants to cover veterinary bills for normal day to day vet services like spay/neuter, vaccines or routine exams.
Orvis Animal Care Grant
This grant is made possible by our partnership with The Orvis Company, one of the longest running retailers in the US and supporter of conservation and animal efforts nationwide, who joins us in our belief that promoting pet adoption helps save lives.
KONG Toy Grant
A Shot at Life Vaccination Grant
The Petfinder Foundation is working with Boehringer Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc. 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.
