Grants for American Humane Association Animal Welfare Current Agency Member Organizations

From The Foundation Center...

American Humane Announces Expansion of Second Chance Fund Grant Program for Animal Welfare Agency Members

Deadline: Open

Through its Second Chance Fund, the American Humane Association ( http://www.americanhumane.org/ ) provides financial assistance, in select cases, to animal welfare organizations and breed- specific rescue groups responsible for the temporary care of animals as they are prepared for adoption into permanent homes. The program provides animal victims of abuse or neglect with a second chance at life.

Due to the overwhelming number of abuse cases nationwide, the Second Chance Fund is offered only to organizations that are current agency members of the American Humane Association, and only in select cases of animal abuse or neglect.

Individuals, businesses, corporations, and non-member organizations are not eligible. Funding to any one agency is limited to $2,000 per fiscal year. For the remainder of 2007 and in 2008, American Humane will be doubling the total financial assistance provided. This additional grant funding is a result of American Humane's partnership with Pedigree Food for Dogs ( http://www.pedigree.com/ ).

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.

We at ESMA (The Egyptian Society for Mercy to Animals) www.esmaegypt.net are currently in a crisis situation. Most of the other shelters in Cairo have stopped admitting new cases, and as a consequence we are currently overcrowded and overloaded financially. Many of you know that we are raising funds to purchase our own land but the global financial crisis means that this project is currently on hold due to lack of willing lenders.
