3 Resources (plus one bonus) to Help You Fund Your Work

Getting to connect people to their new furry, feathered, or scaled family member, helping previously broken animals foster new confidence and a zest for life, supporting the human animal bond, these are only a few of the many reasons that we choose to work or volunteer with an animal welfare organization. Along with all of the amazing things about this choice, there are an equal number of stressors, one of which is funding. Part of running an animal welfare organization is being nimble, flexible, and innovative with the resources we have while also looking for opportunities to grow those resources. Below are 3 resources (plus one bonus) to help you locate grants to help amplify the work you’re doing to help animals in need. 

  • HumanePro 
HumanePro, an arm of the Humane Society of the United States, offers a list of major funders within the animal protection space as well as a brief description of the kinds of projects they typically fund. Whether you focus on sheltering dogs and cats or run a wildlife sanctuary, there’s likely a grant opportunity for you. 
  • ASPCAPro
When it comes to getting started researching grants, ASPCAPro’s resource is a great launching point with links to some of the biggest players in animal welfare granting who accept applications via their websites. In addition, they also offer links to other resources for continuing your search for funding opportunities.  
  • Candid
Unlike the other resources on this list, Candid is not specific to animal welfare organizations but rather provides a searchable database of funders. Though Candid is a paid subscription it can be accessed for free from a number of different community centers. You can find one close to you here
Bonus! Crowdfunding Resource: Waggle 
Waggle is a crowdfunding resource dedicated to paying veterinary bills that otherwise could seem insurmountable thus saving lives. Waggle provides a platform to raise money and helps amplify reach.
