Animal re-homing organisations in the area can now apply for financial support from the UK’s largest grant-giving animal charity, Support Adoption For Pets, under its new 2016 grant scheme.

To celebrate its 10th year, the independent animal charity has revamped the grants it has available. The launch of the scheme will allow any animal charity that re-homes animals to apply for £4,000 or £10,000.

Grants worth £4,000 are available through the new Helping Paws award with the donation to go towards items such as microchips and scanners. The charity is launching this tier of the year-long grant scheme now ahead of the law change on micro-chipping in March. There will be 20 of the Helping Paws grants available.

For larger organisations in the area, Support Adoption For Pets will also award ten £10,000 grants for renovation projects. This can include enrichment paddocks, fencing, exercise areas or renovations to upgrade existing kennels, catteries and animal housings.

Visit www.supportadoptionforpets.co.uk to apply. The deadline for applications is Friday, February 26.
