Thought this was good for those of you who have shelters, volunteer
for a shelter or know of one that could use some cash.
As more and more families across the country lose their homes to foreclosure, a new issue is arising: An influx of companion animals at our nation’s shelters as their families can no longer afford them or they are not welcome in their families’ new accommodations.
More pets mean shelters need more resources to house these animals, provide medical treatment, and find these pets homes.
American Humane offers Foreclosure Pets Grants to help shelters care for these pets.
Grant monies are available based on resources and the generosity of our donors and are awarded to qualifying American Humane member shelters. Grant monies must be used to offset expenses already incurred in providing direct care to animals that have been impacted by a foreclosure situation.
Animal welfare organizations interested in applying for a Foreclosure Pets Grant should email the following information to [email protected] with “Foreclosure Pets Grant” in the subject line:
* Organization name and mission statement
* American Humane member number
* Desired use of funds
The maximum grant amount is $2,000 per organization, and availability is highly limited; however, selected organizations will be notified by email and invited to submit a formal application.
