Types of Support: The Foundation will consider applications from rescues with respect to emergency veterinary medical and physical care in extenuating circumstances (for example: breeding mill closures, hoarding and animal abuse situations and situations that fall outside a rescue's normal intake commitments where a rescue may not otherwise be able to help due to financial restrictions), as well as applications for special projects such as spay/neuter programs, low income medical assistance, adoption programs and public education programs. *Please note that funding for routine vet care, accident or illness for animals already in rescue is not a type of support we can provide at this time.
