Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

To impact the lives of animals in need across our country.

To grant funds semi-annually to shelters, rescues and organizations that fall within our grant guidelines.

100% of all our funding goes to help animal welfare initiatives for adoptable companion animals in need.

Since 2013, we have granted nearly $800,000 in grant funding and have been able to directly impact the lives of thousands of animals.
