The An­i­mal Wel­fare Fund Grants Pro­gram is seek­ing grant ap­pli­ca­tions that ben­e­fit all crea­tures great and small. Pre­vi­ous suc­cess­ful ap­pli­cants in- clude emer­gency pet ac­com­mo­da­tion providers, an­i­mal res­cue ser­vices, an­i­mal shel­ters and ed­u­ca­tion groups.

To be el­i­gi­ble for a grant, or­gan­i­sa­tions must be not-for-profit and will also have to meet a range of cri­te­ria. There are small grants of up to $10,000 and large grants rang­ing from $10,001 to $50,000, up to a to­tal of $250,000 in 2017/18.
