What is the PEDIGREE Foundation?

The PEDIGREE Foundation is a private foundation dedicated to helping dogs in need. It is funded by contributions from PEDIGREE® Brand and individuals who share our belief that every dog deserves a loving home. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law. We provide grants to 501(c)(3) dog shelters and breed rescue organizations, and help dog lovers adopt, volunteer, and make donations.

The PEDIGREE Foundation is proud to have awarded 4,740 grants to qualified shelters and rescue organizations since 2008.

Shelters and Rescues of all sizes and in locations all over the U.S. are encouraged to apply annually to receive cash awards from the PEDIGREE Foundation. Our grants specifically support efforts to increase the number of dogs adopted into loving homes.
