Great Plains Region Grant Priorities

Competitive proposals must demonstrate (with statistics) a direct impact on saving the lives of animals and/or a trend toward reducing the number of cats and dogs killed in shelters. Priority consideration will be given to projects focused on helping in areas where the most killing is occurring. Refer to the pet lifesaving dashboard to see where the greatest lifesaving opportunities are in each state or your state (whichever suits you better).


In the Great Plains region, we are looking for programs that:

  • Programs targeted toward live outcomes for at-risk populations (Programs could include return to field in lieu of euthanasia for community cats, rehabilitation/fostering of behavior dogs, neonatal kitten foster programs, finder to foster programs)
  • Target increasing live outcomes for medium and large dogs (foster programs, behavior programs, adoption programs, promotion programs or diversion programs)
  • Increase or support collaboration between organizations through mentorships and coalition building that show a measurable increase in lifesaving at shelters that have the greatest lifesaving opportunity.
