Funding priorities for the ASPCA Anti-Cruelty Grants Program are limited to the following categories:

  • Animal cruelty investigation programs (limited to organizations with law enforcement authority or in formal partnership with same)
  • Expenses incurred as a result of large-scale cruelty seizures and/or surrenders of companion and/or farm animals in cases involving puppy mills, animal fighting, hoarding, abuse and/or neglect. These expenses include veterinary care, housing, transport, spay/neuter, and placement*.  Requests for such funds are limited to organizations with law enforcement authority having jurisdiction over the case or whose involvement was requested by same.
  • Outreach programs aimed at preventing or eliminating animal cruelty
  • Advocacy for anti-cruelty ordinances and legislation
  • Please note: We do not typically fund vehicle requests, payroll expenses, or basic Animal Control Officer training.

*Applicants requesting funding for cases involving interstate transport of animals must be able to demonstrate compliance with all applicable laws and regulations upon request including but not limited to Certificates of Veterinary Inspection (health certificates) for each individual animal travelling.

Grants typically range from $500 to $10,000, though exceptions are made on a case-by-case basis depending on severity and need. Grantees may be asked to collect and report data related to the effectiveness of their funded programs.
