Charting Impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?

What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?

How will they know if they are making progress?

What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

The Petfinder Foundation works to:

-Promote the adoption of homeless pets from shelters and rescue groups
-Help shelters and rescue groups prepare for and recover from disaster
-Make sure adoption organizations across North America are sustainable

-We promote pet adoption through grants that make homeless pets more adoptable, whether through training, veterinary care (vaccinations, spay/neuter, medical treatment), or enrichment to maintain mental health.

-We help shelters and rescue groups prepare for and recover from disaster through disaster grants that pay for repairs, staff overtime, housing and care for evacuees' pets, etc.

-We make sure adoption organizations across North America are sustainable by promoting fundraising through our Sponsor a Pet program.

We distribute grants to the 12,000+ shelters and rescue groups that post their adoptable pets on Petfinder.com, and also enable those organizations to fundraise via Sponsor a Pet using their Petfinder.com listings.

We request grant reports from each recipient of funding that describes the impact of our grant on their adoption and euthanasia rates, as well as the stories of individual pets affected.

We have helped many shelters make organizational and infrastructural improvements that will have a permanent impact on their ability to house, maintain the physical and mental health of, and increase the adoptability of the pets in their care.

We hope to get more shelters participating in Sponsor a Pet so they can be more independent in their fundraising.

Organizational Demographics

In order to support nonprofits and gain valuable insight for the sector, GuideStar worked with D5—a five-year initiative to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in philanthropy—in creating a questionnaire. This section is a voluntary questionnaire that empowers organizations to share information on the demographics of who works in and leads organizations. To protect the identity of individuals, we do not display sexual orientation or disability information for organizations with fewer than 15 staff. Any values displayed in this section are percentages of the total number of individuals in each category (e.g. 20% of all Board members for X organization are female).
