Grant Opportunity..Red Rover & AKC

As I have mentioned before in this blog, as a group,concerned about wildlife, we also have a heart for all “critters”. When I find information about animal welfare grant opportunities I post the details on our site. There are two opportunities this month! They both relate to victims of domestic violence and their pets. The goal of the grant funding will be to allow not for profit agencies to keep the victims of domestic violence together with their pets. The first grant opportunity is from the American Kennel Club Humane Fund. The maximum grant to any one not for profit is $1,000 for this program. There are four rounds of funding deadlines November 15, 2013; February 15, 2014; May 15, 2014 and August 15, 2014. You must have your application in time to meet a chosen deadline. You will need to read carefully the further details to make sure that your not for profit meets the grant guideline. The second group offering a grant for a similar purpose is Red Rover and that grant will be a maximum of $3,000 to any one agency. Again, read the details of the grant application and guidelines carefully. The purpose of the grant is to keep families and pets together in situations of domestic violence. One example that I thought of…there is a domestic violence shelter and they need to build an enclosure for pets of families to use as a secure play area, or perhaps to purchase doggie kennels for the pets. That might fall into the range of an acceptable expenditure for grant monies. I have not read the details of the grant application. Do a search for both groups, the Red Rover and the American Kennel Club Humane Fund…their websites will give more information…and Good Luck with your grant application!
