Save the Lives of Shelter Pets in North America



Your donation will help more than 13,700 shelters and rescue groups in the U.S., Canada and Mexico improve the lives of homeless pets and help them get adopted. We give organizations grants to save lives through adoptions, prepare for and recover from disasters, and keep their pets healthy, fed and comfortable while they wait for adoptive families.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Every year in the Unites States, 3-4 million adoptable pets are euthanized for a lack of a home. Our project has the potential to impact more than 13,700 animal shelters and rescue groups and more than 6 million homeless pets each year in the United States, Mexico and Canada.

How will this project solve this problem?

We offer shelters and rescue groups many types of grants, all designed to help them get pets adopted and out of shelters. Our grants help organizations vaccinate their pets against common shelter diseases, train their dogs in basic manners to make them more adoptable, give their pets beds to get them off the concrete floors and much, much more. We provide whatever it takes to keep shelter pets happy, healthy and more likely to find forever homes.

Potential Long Term Impact

Our ultimate goal is to end the euthanasia of 3 to 4 million adoptable pets that takes place in the United States every year. By helping shelters keep their adoptable pets healthy and find them homes quickly, we can achieve that goal.
