The North Texas Community Foundation‘s funding cycle for Animal Welfare and Equine Therapy is now open.
The grant cycle supports local animal welfare organizations working on the ground to rescue abused, injured or lost animals. Funding focuses primarily on dogs, cats and horses. Resources are also available for organizations providing equine-assisted therapy services.
Organizations serving abused, injured or abandoned dogs and cats in Tarrant and Johnson counties are eligible to apply for grants up to $5,000. Programs and services do not need to be breed-specific. Organizations that offer equine welfare, protection and therapy services in Tarrant, Parker, Johnson, Young, Jack, Denton, Wise, Hood, Somervell, Bosque and Hill Counties are eligible to apply for grants up to $10,000. Projects or programs will be prioritized over ongoing expenses such as farrier care and feed.
The deadline to submit proposals is Sep. 23. Applications may be submitted through the Community Foundation’s online grants portal.
Award notifications will be made on Oct. 26 and grants will be distributed in November 2022. Funds for the grants are supported by The Anita Berry Martin Memorial Fund and The Helen D. and R.E. (Bob) Wallace Foundation Fund.
