Safer Together Grants
Our Safer Together Grant provides funding to pet-friendly domestic violence shelters, animal shelters, boarding facilities or foster care systems in order to help with veterinary care, temporary boarding, behavior training and funding of dedicated animal care positions in support of pets of domestic violence victims. Funding can be awarded to the domestic violence shelter or to a non-profit housing the pets which has a formal established relationship with at least one non-profit domestic violence shelter. Maximum award is $15,000. Additionally, a separate 2019 Safer Together Kick Off Grant provides funding for capital projects designed to enhance dedicated pet spaces or elevate the well-being of pets being sheltered on-site. Maximum award is $25,000.
We strongly encourage nonprofit organization leaders to contact us to discuss eligibility requirements before applying.
Safer Together Grant application deadlines are March 31 and September 30. The grant deadline for the Safer Together Kick Off Grant is April 30. Applications should arrive on or before the deadline date to be considered for funding for that cycle.
PLEASE NOTE: If required materials are not included, your application will not be considered for funding.
