Established in Ontario in 2006.


The Foundation's mission is to address the issue of animal overpopulation and homeless pets.  The Foundation achieves its mission by funding the spay/neuter programs of local animal charities.

Funding Interests

In order to reduce the number of animals being euthanized each year, Animal Aid focuses its funding on spay/neuter programs and projects and TNR.

Types of Support

The Foundation is committed to funding programs and projects that deliver high impact, that are in urgent need of funding from a priority basis, not a financial need and that have a high potential for success.  Our policy is to seek out organizations and programs with a well-defined sense of purpose, demonstrated commitment to making the best use of available resources and a reputation for accomplishing their objectives.

Funding Criteria

Organizations must hold charitable registration status with Canada Revenue Agency and must have completed one full year of operation and have filed their annual return with Revenue Canada.  Animal Aid Foundation is prohibited from awarding grants to organizations that do have a registered charity number.

Priority Funding Consideration

Priority funding consideration is given to charities who are 100% volunteer run.  The Foundation is also committed to investing money back into the communities where the money is being raised. Because funding is based on annual revenues which may come from different geographic areas and fluctuate from year to year, it is not always possible for the Foundation to fund all worthwhile applications.

Funding Restrictions

Grants will not be made for capital funds, building funds, emergency funds, computers and technology, conferences or seminars, deficit financing, endowment funds, matching funds, fellowships, scholarships or bursaries, seed money or to individuals.  Grants are only available to organizations that hold registered charitable status. 


Applicants must complete an Animal Aid Foundation Grant Application in order to be considered for funding.  The Foundation does not accept requests for funding via a simple letter of request.  Only applications using the Animal Aid Foundation Grant Application will be considered for funding. 

Please note: 

Animal Aid Foundation will have a new, revised Grant Application available in September 2015.  Grant applications will be available until December 31, 2015.  Completed Grant Applications are due into the Foundation by January 15, 2016.
