The Banfield Foundation believes all pets deserve access to veterinary care, whether their owners are able to afford it or not. To make veterinary care possible for pets in need, our Community Care Grants support nonprofit organizations that deliver care to owned pets through their own on-site clinic, mobile clinic, or pop-up clinic. By helping vulnerable pet owners access affordable veterinary care, our goal is to keep pets happy, healthy, and in their existing homes for years to come.
Organizations must have their own veterinarian and veterinary professionals on staff, or must contract with or work with volunteer professionals. Our funds may be used for the direct cost of medications, drugs, vaccines, and medical supplies. The intent of your program must be to help vulnerable or low-income pet owners who may not otherwise be able to access or afford veterinary care for their pets, but you do not necessarily need to screen for income eligibility.
We cannot fund:
This grant is unable to support care for adoptable pets, feral animals, livestock or wildlife, and cannot fund voucher programs or care at for-profit practices. No funds may be used for wages, overhead, or marketing, or routine spay/neuter. The intent of your program must not be to generate revenue for your organization.
If you have questions, or if you have not yet held a clinic but are organized and confident in your ability to do so, please email Stephen.email@example.com.
