Pacific Region Grant Priorities
In the Pacific region, competitive proposals must demonstrate (with statistics) a direct impact on increasing lifesaving (compared to last year).
Example proposals may include:
- Programs that show a measurable reduction in the number of cats killed in shelters. Types of programs to launch may include:
- Return-to-field/shelter-neuter-return cat programs (providing healthy impounded stray cats spay/neuter, vaccinations, ear tipping and returning to the outdoor location they were found)
- Lifesaving neonatal (under eight weeks) kitten programming
- Trap-neuter-return programs, only as a preventative measure of cat intake (if healthy stray cats are diverted to TNR options)
- Medical programs for at-risk shelter animals, such as ringworm, parvo/panleuk, or other conditions previously unable to be saved
- Programs targeted toward significantly increasing live outcomes for at-risk large dogs. This includes creative fostering programming, surrender prevention/return to home, behavior programming, or transfer/transport programs with organizations willing to increase their medical or behavior large dogs.
- Shelter intervention programs for animals that do not have a probable live outcome once entering the shelter. Examples may include solutions for behavior surrenders to keep animals in homes (with support), medical stipends or in-house medical intervention for medical cases with a home, etc.
- Focus on collaboration between organizations to strategically save more lives in key shelters.
Priority consideration will be given to projects focused on helping in areas where the most lifesaving opportunities are (please refer to the Pet Lifesaving Dashboard).
