Help us help dogs!

Thanks to dog lovers like you, we have awarded more than $6.1 million in grants since 2008. Your gift to the PEDIGREE Foundation helps to make our support of shelters and rescue organizations possible—and 100% of your contribution to us is redistributed through our grant programs.

Every Dog Deserves a Loving Home

We see a day when all dogs are safe, secure, cared for, fed well, and loved. PEDIGREE Foundation Vision Statement, adopted by the Board of Directors, January 2014

The PEDIGREE Foundation is working to find a solution to the problem of the millions of homeless dogs in this country. Through our grant programs, we support organizations that save the lives of dogs that would otherwise be lost. 

Become a PEDIGREE Foundation Donor and join our community of advocates who believe that by working together, we can save more dogs. Your contributions to the PEDIGREE Foundation will be redistributed to shelters and rescues across America through our grant programs.    

Shelters and rescues that receive our funding are reviewed for organizational and financial stability. Projects that are funded have unique approaches to increasing dog adoptions. Finalists for our major awards receive an onsite, unscheduled visit to ensure that the care they provide meets our standards.

We celebrate the important work that is done every day by shelters and rescue organizations and are grateful for the opportunity to help. Each of them is a part of the solution. By donating today, you become a  part of the solution, too.   

Gifts of all sizes are welcomed and are accepted in the form of cash, pledges, and securities.  Our donors’ personal information is never shared with any other organization or business.

If you would like to speak personally to a representative of the Foundation about your support, please call 615-807-4194.
