New Spay/Neuter Grant Opportunities

PetSmart Charities is now accepting applications from organizations in the United States and Canada for its 2014 High-Impact Spay/Neuter Grants. Specific opportunities include grants for targeted spay/neuter, free-roaming cats, spay/neuter clinic equipment, and spay/neuter “blitz” promotional campaigns.  Eligible applicants include registered charities, government agencies, and tribal authorities in the U.S. and Canada. Applications are being accepted on a rolling basis.  See the program guidelines for further information.

In honor of Word Spay Day‘s 20th anniversary and the recent launch of Zeuterin™, the only non-surgical sterilant for dogs approved by the FDA, the Alliance for Contraception in Cats and Dogs (ACC&D) — in partnership with Best Friends Animal Society, the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), and the Kenneth A. Scott Charitable Trust — is holding a contest for U.S. municipal agencies, 501(c)(3) animal shelters and rescues, veterinary practices, and spay/neuter programs to win grants of up to $2,000 for their spay/neuter programs. Contestants are invited to share the best strategies that their organizations have implemented for marketing Zeuterin or incorporating it into their spay/neuter operations, and to describe the impact those strategies have had. Zeuterin’s potential advantages over traditional spay/neuter methods include reducing neutering costs, reaching communities without surgical facilities, sterilizing male dogs whose owners resist surgery, and neutering dogs who cannot safely undergo anesthesia. Submissions must be received by September 1, 2014.  See the contest guidelines for more information.
