Florida Animal Friend, an organization dedicated to saving the lives of unwanted cats and dogs throughout Florida, is offering a grant for organizations striving to make a difference in the pet over-population problem by providing free or low-cost spay and neuter programs.
Each grant application is reviewed by a committee and scored in a number of areas including targeting important animal populations, ability to increase surgery numbers above the existing baseline, the cost-benefit ratio, the track record of the applicant, and the applicant’s sustainability.
Once applicants make it past the committee, Florida Animal Friend’s board of directors review applications.
“The goal of our grant process is to provide funds to assist in spay and neuter costs for deserving organizations throughout the state,” said Lois Kostroski, executive director of Florida Animal Friend, in a release.
Grant winners will be announced in August, but applications have to be submitted by April 1 at 8 p.m.
