First time Shelter+ Challenge grant recipient People For Pets will use the money to help pay for vet bills.
The no-kill, volunteer-based shelter in Northwest Iowa takes in many animals that are older and/or need medical care prior to adoption. The organization also focuses on spay/neuter programs in the communities served, including providing help for qualifying pet owners. They estimate that their 2011 expenditures on spaying/neutering alone will be $30,000.
GreaterGood.org gives up to $300,000 annually to Petfinder.com Foundation for Shelter+ Challenge grants. The popular program was launched in 2008 and, as of December 2011, will have given out $910,000 to Petfinder.com Network members in the United States, Canada, Puerto Rico, Mexico, and the Caribbean.
