Banfield Charitable Trust
Our vision is to ensure that every wanted and loved pet stays in their home. We strive to create strong and healthy bonds between pets and their owners so that pets are not left to uncertain futures in overcrowded shelters. We want to see pet families thrive. We are working to change the conversation in the national animal assistance arena to focus on preventing surrender.
Our mission is to fund or administer programs to keep pets and people together and to facilitate solutions to ensure no pet owner will ever have to surrender their pet. We are committed to maintaining the human-pet bond. We offer support for emergency and preventive veterinary care, we help struggling pet owners with their pet care needs, and we offer grants to pet-related organizations that are providing solutions that get at the root causes of pet surrender.
Our emergency and preventive veterinary care programs help people facing financial challenges keep their pets healthy and offset costs in emergency medical situations.
Pet Peace of Mind® enables hospice patients to keep their pets at home with them throughout their end-of-life journey.
Our pet food program helps struggling pet owners feed their pets through an annual holiday event to collect food and monetary donations. Those donations are given to Meals On Wheels partners and nonprofits such as human food banks and emergency equine hay banks to maintain pet food banks and distribution programs.
Pet Advocacy Grants help local pet-focused organizations across the country address unique needs facing their communities and develop innovative projects that offer new ways to help pets.
