About Us

The Petfinder Foundation is a public charity that works to end the euthanasia of adoptable pets by assisting animal shelters and rescue groups across North America. Founded in 2003, the Petfinder Foundation has given more than $20 million in cash and product grants to help organizations save the lives of pets in need.  

Our grant programs are designed to make homeless pets more adoptable by keeping them happy and healthy, to make shelter operations more sustainable, and to aid adoption groups during times of natural or man-made disaster. Our grant recipients include more than 13,000 organizations, caring for more than 300,000 homeless pets at any given time, throughout the U.S., Canada and Mexico.

To accomplish our mission of preventing the euthanasia of adoptable pets, we concentrate our work in three core areas: Quality of Life, Disaster and Emergency Response,  and Sponsor a Pet. 

Play Yard Renovation Grant

Play Yard Renovation Grants will be given to shelters that have completed or are scheduled to complete play-group training seminars conducted by Dogs Playing for Life. Grant funds must be used to construct or improve play yards to bring them into compliance with DPFL’s recommendations.

This grant program is part of our commitment to enhancing shelter dogs’ quality of life by allowing them to engage in natural social behaviors. If you HAVE BEEN IN CONTACT WITH DOGS PLAYING FOR LIFE and are interested in receiving a Play Yard Renovation Grant, please email Petfinder Foundation.
