PetSmart Charities: Emergency Relief
We're here to help in the event of large scale natural disasters. In case of an emergency, funds are available to assist during the rescue, relief, and/or recovery stages for qualifying organizations seeking to assist companion pets impacted by the disaster.
PetSmart Charities is not able to provide support for man-made disasters, such as hoarding or cruelty cases.
Eligible grant application considerations:
- Organizations directly affected by large scale natural disaster that are unable to operationally function
- Organizations in the designated impacted area that are requested to respond by agencies having jurisdiction or the Emergency Operation Center/Emergency Management Center
- Organizations in the impacted area temporarily evacuating or relocating shelter pets to provide surge capacity for displaced owned pets
- Sheltering needs for designated shelters for owned pets and programs supporting their reunification
- Purchases for necessary immediate sheltering needs for up to 30 days (gas/lodging, kennels, crates, carriers, food, waste management, bowls, leads/leashes)
- Medical expenses to provide necessary vaccinations and immediate medical for impacted pets (could include S/N)
