Emergency Grant Programme

We support charities and not-for-profit organisations whose main activity is either:

  • the rescue and rehoming of UK pets or
  • the provision of temporary support to ensure pets can remain with their owners

What do we fund?

Support Adoption For Pets funds projects which have a direct impact on animal welfare. In light of the current coronavirus situation, we will currently only fund:
  • Vet bills
  • Boarding costs
  • Food
  • Salaries of (non-furloughed) animal care staff
  • Utilities and consumables

Deadlines:  None; this is a rolling programme, with complete applications reviewed as quickly as the team is able to.

Please note: Due to the volume of applications we receive, failure to include all of the required evidence will result in an application being automatically declined.  

How much do we fund?
Up to £5,000
Or up to 25% of total annual expenditure, whichever is the lower amount.

How often can we apply? Under this emergency grant programme rescues can only apply once. This is to ensure we help as many rescues as possible.

How to apply
  1. Read the current grant criteria carefully to make sure your organisation and your application are eligible for support.
  2. Make sure you’ve included all the supporting evidence required before submitting your application. For all applications this includes recent financial details for your organisation; additional guidance is below. Failure to include all of the required evidence will result in an application being automatically declined.
  3. We may also ask if we can conduct a 'virtual' visit to the rescue to learn more about your work and the way you operate.
