About the Banfield Foundation

From Banfield Pet Hospital’s start as a single hospital in 1955, to our presence today with more than 950 hospitals across the country and Puerto Rico, we have been committed to giving back.  

Banfield Foundation was launched in September of 2015 – born out of our belief that all pets deserve access to veterinary care. In just over a year, the foundation has awarded more than $1.7 million, impacting almost 70,000 pets in 41 states and Washington, D.C. And we’re just getting started!  

From disaster relief, to veterinary assistance and pet advocacy grants, to sponsoring the American Veterinary Medical Association’s Reaching UP program, we’ve found ways to reach pets in need around the country. Now, we’re proud to share details of that impact with you.

Veterinary Assistance Grant

This grant program is to support programs of non-profit and governmental agencies that assist vulnerable community members with veterinary care for pets (small animals only - equine assistance programs are not eligible). You may request up to $10,000 in funding. Funding can be used for any type of veterinary care except routine spay and neuter.

 Veterinary Assistance Grant applications are reviewed on a monthly basis, and may be eligible for funding up to six months after application is received.

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


  • All applicants must be nonprofit organizations with proof of 501(c)(3) status and running programs that deliver assistance to pets and their owners living in the United States.
  • Organizations can only be approved for funding for two consecutive years for the Veterinary Assistance and/or Pet Advocacy Grant programs. If you have been funded by the Banfield Foundation and/or Banfield Charitable Trust for the last two years, you will not be considered for a third year of funding. After a gap year, you will, however, be able to apply for either grant program again.
