Doris Day Animal Foundation (DDAF)
Grants of up to $5,000 to USA nonprofit organizations for programs that benefit animals and their caregivers. Applicants must submit a letter of introduction prior to submitting a full application. Funding is intended to provide support to organizations that work with animals to continue their work, help them offer additional services, or expand their reach to the animals who most critically need their help.
Currently, many of the grants are focused on assisting senior companion animals, whether it be assisting with their food, care, veterinary costs, or need for adoption.
Generally, DDAF approves programs that are devoted more directly to the animals and that demonstrate the greatest or most urgent need. DDAF generally funds spay/neuter programs, special needs programs, senior care programs, medical expenses for senior animals, rescue and placement of senior animals, and pet food pantries.
On occasion, grants have been funded for therapy dogs in hospice situations, training of assistance dogs, wildlife rehabilitation, protective vests for police dogs, education programs, and even a scholarship in the field of veterinary medicine.
