When you set your clocks ahead this weekend, do two other things: Change the batteries in your smoke detectors, and apply for a shelter operations grant from PetSmart Charities!
Animal shelters with a physical brick and mortar location that the organizations owns or leases long-term have until March 28 to apply for an operations grant, which are designed to “support core sheltering functions that are scalable and represent a shelter’s move toward sustainable and innovative sheltering practices.”
The grants will cover:
- Systematic improvements or additions that focus on shelter population management, such as improved disease treatment protocols, enrichment, shelter sanitation protocols, shelter technology
- Adoption programs or infrastructure improvements designed to decrease the length of stay
Excluded are requests for infrastructure or vehicles over $100,000.
Sound good? We thought you’d like it! Head over to the grant application website and apply today!
