"It is not often that a small shelter such as ours receives the funds to do such work. You cannot imagine the boost this gave us."
—Cheryl Zuckschwerdt, Bartholomew County Humane Society, Indiana

"We will use this award to purchase cages for our cat room. This will enable us to house many more cats and also present a more disease-free environment."
—Marcia Smith, Siskiyou Humane Society, California

"An adoption facility, removed from the sadness of receiving, will permit counseling of potential adopters and animal selection to be the foremost issue."
—William Dennerline, Arizona Humane Society

We can give you the funds you need to improve the care of your animals with a Meacham Foundation Memorial Grant.

Does your shelter need:

  • Kennel repair
  • Adoption facilities
  • Ventilation systems
  • Cat perches
  • Floor and wall repairs

We can help. Twice each year, AHA awards several grants of up to $4,000 to shelters like yours for those routine, but critical, repairs and improvements that directly affect the care of the animals in your facility.

To qualify, you must—

  • be an AHA Supporting or Network Member
  • be incorporated
  • be a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization
  • plan to use the funds only on construction, capital improvements, repairs, or equipment that directly affect animal welfare

If your request is granted, you must follow strict guidelines throughout your project, and regularly report your progress to AHA.

You may not use the funds for operating budgets, deficit reduction, vehicle purchases, fund-raising efforts (gift shops, etc.), staff areas, or routine maintenance.
