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.
