SPCA International Awards 48 Animal Rescue Groups Worldwide Grants Totaling $250,000+ So Far in 2019

Grants will fund like-minded programs and organizations

New York, NY (August 28, 2019) – SPCA International (SPCAI) is pleased to announce the recipients of grant funding awarded by the organization in the past few months that will provide support to important programs and improve the safety and well-being of animals around the globe.

The funding is distributed through SPCAI’s Shelter Support Fund which supports and partners with smaller animal welfare organizations domestically and worldwide to increase their impact. In 2019, SPCAI has awarded 48 grants and more than $250,000 so far. Since 2007, SPCAI has assisted animal shelters and rescue groups in every U.S. state and over 60 countries around the world.

“We have helped many phenomenal groups so far in 2019 and we are looking forward to helping many more animal organizations in the remaining months of the year,” said Meredith Ayan, Executive Director, SPCA International. “We are proud to help these deserving organizations increase their reach and make the world a better place for animals.”
