Funding What Matters
We support nonprofits, municipalities, and animal welfare organizations whose companion animal programs help enrich lives through the human-animal bond.

Adoption Prep grants are designed to support PetSmart Charities Adoption Partners’ efforts to help homeless animals find homes via PetSmart Charities' in-store adoption program.
Transport grants are provided for collaborative efforts that involve multiple partners utilizing sustainable transport networks relocating at least 1,500 pets (U.S.) or 500 pets (Canada) annually and optimizing the PetSmart in-store network for adoptions.
Grants Supporting Access to Veterinary Care
Steve Marton Veterinary Student Scholarship
Closed for 2023
The Steve Marton Veterinary Student Scholarship will be awarded to veterinary students in the United States who embody the mission and vision of PetSmart Charities. Veterinary students on the forefront of providing accessible veterinary care in under-resourced communities are encouraged to apply.
Improving Access to Veterinary Care
PetSmart Charities is supporting the development of accessible veterinary care to transform how, where and for whom veterinary care is delivered. Healthy pets lead to healthier families and communities built through our two new Access to Veterinary Care grant categories.
Natural Disaster Response
We're here to help in the event of large-scale natural disasters in the United States and Canada. Funds are aimed toward support of rescue, relief, response, and recovery efforts of impacted pets. Cash grants are awarded to support sheltering supplies and infrastructure, reunification efforts, necessary veterinary care, and staffing and volunteer needs for those working with pets in impacted areas.
