Saving pets. Together.

The Petfinder Foundation has been helping animal shelters and rescue groups since 2003. We are the ONLY national organization that does nothing but give cash and product grants to adoption groups.

How We Work

Our programs are designed to keep homeless pets physically and mentally healthy so they can find loving forever homes.

Our grants put food in bowls, provide medical care, and help rescue animals from disasters. When pets are in need, we’re there to help.

Who Gets Our Grants

We’ve given more than $25 million in cash and product grants since 2003. Our grant recipients include more than 10,000 adoption groups, caring for more than 250,000 homeless pets – from cats and dogs to birds and horses – throughout North America.

Our Impact

We make sure your donations save lives. At least 90% of every dollar we spend is used to support programs that help pets!

Our Team

Our small team of three administers more than 5,000 grants per year. It’s one of the ways we stay so efficient.
