PetSmart Charities is a nonprofit animal welfare organization that saves the lives of homeless pets across North America. They help communities solve pet overpopulation by funding adoption and spay/neuter programs. PetSmart Charities is proud to grant more money to directly help pets in need than any other animal welfare group in North America. The goal of PetSmart Charities is to find a lifelong, loving home for every pet. Everyone gets closer every day with adoption events and centers, pet rescue programs and support for spay/neuter efforts.

Since launching this grants program in 1999, Maddie's Fund® has invested $62.2M to help communities increase their lifesaving through community-wide collaborations of adoption guarantee organizations, animal control and traditional shelters and private practice veterinarians. Community Collaborative Projects began as five-year programs to reach an adoption guarantee for all healthy shelter pets. In 2005, they adjusted the projects to be 10-year programs, with seven years of funding from Maddie's Fund, to reach no-kill, whereby all healthy and treatable shelter animals are guaranteed a loving home.


"Pets are our first priority." That's why Hill's offers not-for-profit shelters the opportunity to partner with them and receive exclusive discounts on Science Diet® brand pet food to feed every pet in your care. Hill's believes that making premium nutrition accessible to every shelter - and every pet - helps send them home faster.

Hill's also provides shelters with training, digital tools and content, and shelter visuals. And for pet owners, Hill's has Science Diet® adopter kits with coupons and Your New Best Friend Guide digital books.

Whether a shelter or a rescue group has 100 or 10,000 adoptions a year, Hill's has their goal set to ensure that every pet goes home healthy and happy. That means nourishing every pet that arrives at a shelter or a rescue group with Science Diet® and sending a Science Diet® adopter kit home with every new adoption.
