cat surgery, masked vet, cat spay, cat neuter, surgery prepEach year, 4 million healthy pets are euthanized. That's nearly 11,000 a day.

But you can help reduce pet overpopulation and euthanasia with a PetSmart Charities® grant for your spay/neuter program.

Types of grants

We offer:

Targeted spay/neuter grants

Does 1 ZIP code in your community generate a particularly high shelter intake? Get low-cost spay/neuter services for a targeted segment of your community (geographic, demographic or animal-specific) that has a critical need.

Free-roaming cat spay/neuter grants

Help reduce the free-roaming cat population with funding, strategic planning and mentoring for trap-neuter-return (TNR) projects.

Spay/neuter clinic equipment grants

Get funds to buy equipment and consumables to start up or expand your high-volume spay/neuter clinic.

Spay/neuter blitz grants

Help save the lives of pets who have the highest risk of being euthanized: cats, kittens, puppies and pit bull terriers. Get funding to offer low-cost surgeries during our grant promotional campaign periods, as well as marketing support for promoting the campaign periods.

We also have conference sponsorship grants available. 

 “PAWS has been raising the money for a clinic for 2 years. While we’ve raised enough to lease and renovate a building and cover all the expenses that go along with that, we needed this grant from PetSmart Charities to purchase the equipment and supplies we need to operate the clinic.”
