Charting impact

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

The Petfinder Foundation works to:

-Promote the adoption of homeless pets from shelters and rescue groups
-Help shelters and rescue groups prepare for and recover from disaster
-Make sure adoption organizations across North America are sustainable

-We promote pet adoption through grants that make homeless pets more adoptable, whether through training, veterinary care (vaccinations, spay/neuter, medical treatment), or enrichment to maintain mental health.

-We help shelters and rescue groups prepare for and recover from disaster through disaster grants that pay for repairs, staff overtime, housing and care for evacuees' pets, etc.

-We make sure adoption organizations across North America are sustainable by promoting fundraising through our Sponsor a Pet program.

We distribute grants to the 12,000+ shelters and rescue groups that post their adoptable pets on Petfinder.com, and also enable those organizations to fundraise via Sponsor a Pet using their Petfinder.com listings.

We have helped many shelters make organizational and infrastructural improvements that will have a permanent impact on their ability to house, maintain the physical and mental health of, and increase the adoptability of the pets in their care.

In 2020 we helped shelters and rescue groups to maintain their operations during the COVID-19 pandemic, when many are suffering from a lack of donations and inability to conduct adoptions, while continuing to take in pets who've lost their homes.
