The American Humane Association provides financial assistance to animal welfare organizations and breed-specific rescue groups responsible for the temporary care of animals before they are put for adoption into permanent homes.
Due to the overwhelming number of abuse cases nationwide, Second Chance Fund grants are offered only in select cases of animal abuse or neglect. Funding may be used only to cover medical procedures for animals that have been victims of abuse or neglect and require medical treatment before being placed for adoption.
Funding to any one agency is limited to $2,000 per year. Applications are accepted year-round but must be received no later than six months following the date of intake. Individuals, businesses, and corporations are not eligible to apply.
More information about Second Chance Fund grants, including stories of animals who have benefited from getting a second chance, can be found at the American Humane Association Web site.
