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?
- Vet bills
- Boarding costs
- 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 £10,000
Or up to 30% of total annual expenditure, whichever is the lower amount.
How often can we apply? At least 3 months must lapse between receiving funds and making a new application (under this programme).
- Read the current grant criteria carefully to make sure your organisation and your application are eligible for support.
- 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.
- 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.
We’ve been awarded a grant – what next?
Receiving a grant isn’t the end of the process; all rescues should engage with us following a successful application. This ensures we can celebrate the grant with our donors. As a minimum, this includes:
- social media post
- short thank you video (max. 30 secs)
- photographs and case studies of pets helped
- article in a newsletter (if your rescue produces one)
