Grant Opportunities

To meet today’s demands, animal care and control agencies are being asked to provide additional programs and services, often without an increase in their operating budgets. Meeting these additional expectations requires animal care and control agencies to be creative, and to seek the help of others. Although this is not an exhaustive list, here are a few of the grant opportunities available to animal care and control agencies.

If you are aware of additional grant opportunities not listed, please email it to us.

The Association for Animal Welfare Advancement​ –

To address the imbalance between the demands on California animal shelters and their capacity to care for animals in need, we provide financial resources, training, and partnership opportunities with the goal of keeping animals with their people. When the shelter is the best place for an animal to receive care, we work alongside agencies to create environments that center every dimension of well-being to place animals in homes as quickly as possible.
