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.
