Too often we hear about the millions of unwanted animals killed in shelters across America each year or read about unfathomable cruelty inflicted on defenseless creatures.
Fortunately, there are selfless, passionate individuals quietly saving lives – hands-on, one animal at a time. With pure hearts, boundless energy and few resources, they work diligently day in and day out, to rescue animals in distress, heal their wounds, restore their confidence, and teach them to trust and love again.
The Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals is committed to helping these unsung heroes pursue their worthy missions. Regardless of species served, the Foundation supports those deserving organizations who do so much with so little.
THE PURR’N POOCH FOUNDATION FOR ANIMALS IS DEDICATED TO PROVIDING FINANCIAL SUPPORT AND EDUCATIONAL RESOURCES TO NON-PROFIT ANIMAL RESCUE GROUPS AND ORGANIZATIONS.
The Purr’n Pooch Foundation for Animals awards annual grants to non-profit animal and marine mammal rescue and welfare organizations to be used for day-to-day operations, emergency relief, spay/neuter efforts, veterinary care, equipment, construction, vehicle purchases, educational programs and special projects. Learn more about our grant recipients.
We raise funds for our grantmaking efforts through special events organized for all ages, people and pets. Events include our canine run/walk, dog-friendly gala, summer party and collection drives. One of our highly-anticipated events is the Foundation Grantee Breakfast, where unsung heroes from the charities we fund join us for a morning of friendship and celebration as we present them with their grants.
Our Board of Trustees meets monthly and grants are reviewed on an on-going basis. Grantees are selected after careful review of applications and are distributed in February at the Foundation’s Grantee Breakfast. Applicants will be notified by January 1st if they have been selected for a grant. Grant applications are available online. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
