This grant program is for nonprofit animal welfare organizations and/or government animal service agencies to provide funding for the purchase of veterinary medical equipment for use at on-site clinics, pop-up clinics, mobile veterinary units, disaster relief vehicles, etc. Equipment must be used to treat owned or adoptable companion pets within a few months or so of receiving grant funding. Grant funding can be used to purchase a variety of medical equipment such as anesthesia and dental equipment, digital x-ray imaging systems and accessories, ultrasounds, autoclaves and sterilizers, centrifuges, surgical tables and lighting, etc.
Funding can be used to cover the total purchase price of equipment up to $15,000.00 or can be used toward the purchase price of higher priced items.
Due to significant demand, we prioritize funding for organizations that need to replace old, unsafe, or broken equipment, those who need equipment to make treatment safer for the animals they serve, and those who want to bring services in-house in order to reduce wait time and costs at a private clinic. We also prioritize funding for equipment that will serve both adoptable and owned pets.
We are unable to fund equipment for sole use on equine, sanctuary, livestock, wildlife or feral animals. We are not able to reimburse for equipment you have already purchased, and we cannot fund kennels, used equipment, or equipment repairs.
