Unfortunately, we will not be making additional grants for the foreseeable future.
Friends for Pets Foundation (FFP) will be making one-time grants of up to $50,000 to selected animal rescue organizations located in the U.S. In keeping with the longstanding mission of FFP to assist dogs abandoned, mistreated, neglected, or left in pounds, these grants will support similarly oriented non-profit rescue organizations. The emphasis will be on well-established rescues working to find homes for mature dogs (i.e., not only puppies). Priority will be given to applications that request funding for veterinary care, facility support, and other costs directly related to placing rescued dogs. These grants are being made in honor of our late founder, Diane Monahan, who worked tirelessly on behalf of the more than 3,000 dogs rescued by FFP since 1985.
- Must be registered Non-Profit 501(c)(3) Organizations located in the U.S.
- Must be rescues with a “no-kill” policy.
- Must be dedicated primarily to dog rescue.
Preference will be given to rescue organizations that
- Maintain their own kennel facilities.
- Have a proven track record of placing rescued dogs, not just kenneling them.
- Are primarily volunteer organizations with few, if any, salary obligations.
- Have well-articulated plans for using award funds.
All funding decisions are made by members of the Friends for Pets Foundation Board of Directors at their sole discretion.
