Pet Foster Care Stimulus Grant

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, foster care is being embraced like never before. The Pet Foster Care Stimulus Grant was designed to assist shelter and rescue organizations in providing the best care possible to the animals in foster care and help manage your population through foster care. It also helped to reinforce foster care as a standard practice for animal sheltering as we move forward. Foster care is no longer just "the future,” it’s now!

This grant opportunity provided funding to support foster care programs with food, medical care, supplies, staff time and more. Grants of up to $20,000 were available depending on the organizations’ annual intake of dogs and cats.
