The Maine Community Foundation recently awarded $282,500 in grants to 21 organizations to support animal welfare.
The fund supports organizations dedicated to advancing animal welfare in Maine. Priority is given to organizations that help low-income or disadvantaged populations maintain ownership of their pets and prevent animal surrender/abandonment.
Midcoast Humane received a $20,000 grant in support of its Community Cats voucher program, which provides financial assistance to income-qualified rural cat owners and cat colony caretakers.
The next deadline for proposals to the Animal Welfare Fund is June 1, 2022. For application, guidelines and a complete list of 2021 grants, go to mainecf.org.
