ANIMAL WELFARE

We believe in supporting the needs of our animal companions and the healing qualities of the human-animal bond. Grants may include spay & neuter clinics, adoption centers and improvements in animal welfare.

For individuals with lower incomes, the benefits and comfort of owning a pet can come at too high a price. To keep pets and their owners healthy, Don’t Forget To Feed Me provides free pet food to low-income or disadvantaged pet owners through local pet food pantries, senior centers, and their partnership with the American Red Cross. The organization aims to ensure that no pet owner ever denies themselves food, medication, or other necessities in order to keep their pet companion fed. Their work allows pet owners to provide nutritionally appropriate food for their pet and not sacrifice their own wellbeing.

Gifts will be used to purchase cat and dog food to distribute in the North Texas region.

Gifts of $1,000 or more are greatly appreciated.

Total Budget: $17,000
