Animal re-homing organisations in the local area can now apply for financial support from the UK’s largest grant giving animal charity Support Adoption For Pets under its new grant 2016 scheme.

To celebrate its 10th year, Support Adoption For Pets has revamped the grants it has available. The launch of the scheme will allow any animal charity that re-homes animals to apply for the £10,000 Award, Transporting Pets Award or the Sponsor a Kennel or Cattery Award.

For organisations that own their own land in the area, Support Adoption For Pets will award ten £10,000 grants to rescues for renovation projects. This can include enrichment paddocks, fencing, exercise areas or renovations to upgrade existing kennels, catteries and animal housings.

The Transporting Pets Award allows charities to purchase a van to transport the pets in their care. The vans will be fitted with cages and will be sign-written to include the rescues and Support Adoption For Pets logo.

The Sponsor a Kennel or Cattery Award is open to rescues who do not have their own rescue centre and therefore rely on the use of commercial kennels or a cattery to house the pets in their care.

Amy Wilson, charity manager at Support Adoption For Pets said: “We couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate our 10th Birthday than to introduce an exciting new grant scheme. The tiered structure means that throughout the year there should be a grant relevant to every re-homing rescue in the country, big and small, starting with these.”

Amy added: “We want to appeal to as many rescues as possible in offering financial aid as every re-homing centre is hugely worthwhile, particularly in its local area.”
