PetSmart Charities provides grants for emergency relief

We're here to help in the event of a natural or man-made disaster. In case of an emergency, funds are available to assist during the rescue, relief, and/or recovery stages for qualifying organizations seeking to assist more than 20 companion pets impacted by the disaster. 

Acceptable requests for this category include:

  • Man-made disasters  such as hoarding or animal abuse
  • Natural disasters such as hurricanes, fires, and floods



Due to the volume of requests received, PetSmart Charities is no longer accepting Emergency Relief grant requests for human-made disasters in the U.S. At this time, all remaining Emergency Relief funds will be allocated towards catastrophic, large-scale natural disaster relief efforts.
