About this funder:



The Shasta Regional Community Foundation is a nonprofit, public charity serving the people of Shasta and Siskiyou counties in California. Established in 2000 by a group of dedicated community volunteers, the Community Foundation helps people achieve their charitable goals.  In partnership with our generous donors, we are building resources that will serve our communities now and in the future.

The Community Foundation created this fund to provide for the care of animals in Shasta and Siskiyou Counties. As the fund grows, grants will be made to nonprofit organizations who promote animal welfare such as support for: rabies clinics, spay and neuter services, animal rescue, animal rehabilitation and more. This Fund also supports wild animals with welfare related projects.
