Helping dogs across America to live safe, happy lives

Finding the perfect partner

We know that we cannot achieve our aims alone. Which is why we partner with animal welfare organizations across the United States and around the world to support the wonderful work they’re already doing.

Dogs Trust USA is aware of the large number of dogs abandoned and in need of loving homes across the United States, and that there are many organizations working tirelessly to help dogs live happy and healthy lives. We want to help them do even more, by supporting other USA-based 501(c)(3) non-profits like ourselves to deliver projects which will make lasting improvements to dog welfare across the country.  

Our grants program has previously supported projects in the following states: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Kentucky, Louisiana, Michigan, Mississippi, New Mexico, New York, Nevada, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia and West Virginia. 

We supported well governed groups to deliver well-planned projects with the potential to make a strong impact. This includes innovative projects that other organizations can learn from, and that contribute towards encouraging responsible dog ownership, a reduction in dog abandonment, an increase in adoption from shelters or effective management of dog populations through spay/neuter programs. 

We are currently focusing our support on our Professional Development work with partner organizations and Dog School.

We have “pawsed” our Dogs Trust USA open Grants round for 2023, focusing our efforts on our Professional Development partnerships and Dog School programs for the moment.  However, we may actively reach out to organizations directly to engage with them for joint projects.
