Our Grant Philosophy
Franklin’s Friends grants funds to deserving local 501(c)(3) and government animal welfare agencies. Grant applications are rigorously reviewed for veterinary and financial responsibility. We strive to support three pillars of animal welfare: Shelter/Rescue, Spay/Neuter, and Community Education. All funds granted are restricted to the use specified in the grant application.


Apply for A Grant
Franklin’s Friends accepts grant applications from local 501(c)(3) and government agencies in Orange, Seminole, Osceola, Volusia, or Lake Counties year round. Each organization may only apply once per calendar year. We do not donate to breed specific rescues or to individuals. We do not provide grants for the purchase of property or buildings. We will not grant funds to organizations who do not treat heartworm positive dogs according to the American Heartworm Society guidelines unless they are applying for funds to allow them to do so. Any organization receiving a grant from Franklin’s Friends is required to furnish receipts demonstrating how our funds were spent.

Franklin's Friends granted $15,000 to Poodle and Pooch Rescue of Florida for the shelter and care of dogs rescued in the state of Florida.

Crosby

Crosby

Crosby was starving and depressed before he arrived at Poodle and Pooch Rescue from animal control. He had ben very neglected, was extremely underweight, and had sores on his skin. He is blind from cataracts and had to have one eye removed because of glaucoma. But he is now playful and perky, has gained some weight, and loves going for walks.

 

Feebee

Feebee

Feebee came from animal control with a broken jaw and puncture wounds to her neck. She was transported to a specialist in Tampa where her jaw was surgically repaired. Her jaw is still healing so she can only eat soft food and has to wear a cone. She also has breast tumors on both sides which will require surgery once she has recovered from the jaw surgery.

 

Mia

Mia

Mia is a 7 year old dog who was surrendered by her owner. Poodle and Pooch found out she was very uncomfortable because her bladder was full of stones. She had surgery to remove them and a dental cleaning and some extractions and now is recovering in her foster home.

 

Sprout

Sprout

Sprout is an 18 month old pup from animal control. He is missing some hair because he is probably part Chinese Crested or another hairless breed. His left eye had a condition called phthisis bulbi where the eye is blind and starts shrinking – so this eye needed to be removed to prevent infection. His other eye had the lashes turned inward causing scratching and scarring to the cornea. He had surgery to correct the lashes on that eye. He also has loose kneecaps on both sides which may require surgery. He is very scared but is learning to relax with his foster family.

 

Clara

Clara

Clara is a senior dog who came from animal control and was found to have an autoimmune condition that puts her at high risk for bleeding. She was treated with medications with complete success. The veterinarians are just adjusting her medications to limit side effects but still control the disease.

 

Hilo

Hilo

Hilo belonged to a man who was selling drugs. He had mange and some skin infections. He was treated with oral and topical medications and now the mange is gone and his hair is starting to grow in!

 

Lucky

Lucky

Lucky was very skinny and scared when he came to Poodle and Pooch. He was biting and pooping every time he was let out of his crate out of sheer fear. Now that he has lost his fear he has stopped biting and pooping! He had a skin infection which was treated but the hair has not grown back yet. He also has bad knees but this might improve once he gains weight and builds some muscle.
