Overview:

Rachael Ray Save Them All Grants

Anyone in animal rescue knows there's a lot of work to do. So Best Friends Animal Society wants to make life saving a little easier for our Best Friends Network partners with The Rachael Ray Save Them All grants. 

We are interested in funding projects that will reduce shelter deaths in your community. Proposed projects MUST demonstrate, with statistics, a direct impact on saving lives and/or leading to a reduction in shelter deaths.  

Projects can be related to:

  • Targeted spay/neuter
  • Adoption initiatives 
  • Trap-Neuter-Return or Return to Field projects for community cats
  • Intake prevention programs
  • Any other projects that will directly reduce shelter deaths in your community 

Network partners can apply for a grant of up to $50,000, with the amount requested not exceeding 10% of their operating budget.

Projects can be focused on just one event or program, or can be more open to include multiple events or programs. These grants are intended to help your organization take lifesaving to the next level, so let us know how you would use a grant to accomplish that.

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