The Petplan Charitable Trust promotes the health and welfare of animals. The next round for applications to their Welfare Grants scheme is due to open in September 2011. The application form will be available to download from the Petplan Charitable Trust website soon, so keep checking the website.
The Petplan Charitable Trust accept applications from registered charities that work to benefit animals supported by Petplan Ltd (i.e. dogs, cats, horses and rabbits). Grants to human charities may be considered if they can show a grant would enhance/give support to the animals’ best interest.
Examples of eligible costs include staffing, buildings, vehicles, equipment, food and veterinary fees and education (the website says appeals for literature print will be considered together with other relevant requests).
Applications must show successful rehoming of animals. Grants will not be made to groups that want to keep rescued animals permanently as their own.
The Trust also provides Scientific Grants for scientific and capital grants for non-invasive studies that do not experiment on animals.
