Oxbow Animal Health works to recognize the hard work and dedication it takes to find homes for neglected, homeless and abandoned small pets. Since the mid 1990’s, we have provided a discount on Oxbow feeds to rescue organizations through our Oxbow Cares program. Since 2001, we have awarded monetary funding through the Oxbow Rescue Grant program to organizations seeking medical support, feeding needs, educational programs, and building renovations.

In addition to the programs available to rescue organizations, we proudly supply them with product support, literature, community outreach, and professional advice on nutrition. Each day, thousands of dedicated and passionate people dedicate themselves to making a difference in the lives of small animals. We are proud to support the organizations that do this wonderful work.

Grant Categories:

  • Education and Outreach: Support Educational and outreach programs, training materials, leaflets, and videos.
  • Capital Improvement: Support Renovations, additions, new structures, and equipment purchases.
  • Operating Support: Normal operating expenses such as feed, utilities, and veterinary care.
