NOTE: Applications for this grant are currently closed.

We invest directly in organizations and programs that support the elimination of discriminatory policies and, instead, work toward the equal treatment of “pit bull” dogs. If your 501c3 organization is working towards similar goals, with programs and initiatives that treat all dogs equally, we encourage you to apply for our grants.

Play Yard Construction Grant

Organizations implementing permanent playgroup programs for the enrichment and socialization of their dogs may be eligible for up to $10,000 to expand, repair or newly construct play yards.

We expect that all proposals will be inclusive of “pit bull” dogs without singling them out or creating exclusive programs. Programs of interest think big picture and can benefit all the animals or dogs in the shelter.

You can learn more about this opportunity by visiting the funder's website.


  • Your organization needs to be a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit to apply.
  • Animal Farm Foundation requires that grantees have no discriminatory policies or practices and that all dogs are treated as individuals. 
  • Requirements:
    • A dog’s suitability for playgroup participation cannot be based on suspected breed or mix. You must treat all dogs individually.
    • Applicants must be an authorized member of the organization.
    • We require two separate construction/building quotes.
    • The property must be owned by the applying agency.
    • Additional requirements may apply.


  • We will not provide funding to organizations that have special policies, applications, requirements, or rules for “pit bull” dogs. 
  • We will not fund capital campaigns, staff positions/employment, or programs that underwrite breed specific legislation (BSL) of any kind.
