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.

 “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.”
