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.
