SpayVA Spay/Neuter Grant Program

The Virginia Federation of Humane Societies, SpayVA program is announcing a change to its annual conference grant process. In years past, we have provided grant monies to all requesting members who were in attendance at the conference through a double-blind draw process.  Starting in 2017, applications will be reviewed by VFHS and a minimum of 5 grants will be awarded on the basis of greatest impact, ability to conduct services, and overall need.  Please click this link for more info on how to apply:

Spay/Neuter Grant Program

We are happy to report that in 2017, $15,000 was awarded to 15 member organizations and over 440 animals were spayed/neutered as a result.

A huge thank you goes out to Tito's Handmade Vodka and Breakthru Beverage for partnering with SpayVA and for providing $5,000 in grant funds awarded at our 2017 conference to local rescues and animal shelters for spaying/neutering services. 

As part of our 2018 Spay/Neuter Grant Program, Tito's has generously offered to match all donations up to $10,000.  Please consider making a donation to SpayVA today!!!!
