Lifesaving Award Grant GuidelinesĀ 

This grant opportunity will be ending in 2014. Currently we're only accepting inquiries from strategic communities that have achieved and sustained no-kill status for at least two years. Applications are no longer being accepted for communities that have achieved an adoption guarantee for healthy pets.

Maddie's Fund® has established special Lifesaving Awards to recognize communities that are leading the way in saving animal lives.

These awards are designed to acknowledge the outstanding contributions being made by coalitions consisting of Traditional Shelters, Adoption Guarantee organizations, and Animal Control agencies in which all groups have already implemented an adoption guarantee for all healthy and treatable shelter pets in their target community and are likely to sustain it in the future (No-Kill Community).

This award is community-based and must be applied for on behalf of a coalition. Communities in the United States with a human population of 200,000 or more are eligible to apply.  An individual animal welfare organization is not eligible to apply for this award unless it's doing so on behalf of a coalition.

If you are interested in applying for a Lifesaving Award Grant, please contact Maddie's Fund at or 925.310.5450.
