Grant Program



❝You already do great
things for dogs like me.
Imagine how much more
you can do with a grant!❞Champ
As a puppy, Champ found himself in a shelter because the landlord didn’t like Pit Bulls. But that’s in the past. His loving forever family includes three frisky felines!

We help those who help dogs

Our 2021 grants include COVID-19 Relief, Program Development and DOGS RULE.™ grants. The grant cycle is now closed, however we hope to offer an addition round of COVID-19 Relief grants this year. We will announce that on our social media and this page when available.
