Lifesaving just got a whole lot more innovative! After the 2016 Humane Society of the United States Expo, we invited attendees to submit Innovation Grant proposals in various categories from adoptions and technology to public engagement. It’s no surprise the proposals came pouring in, and we just awarded more than $307,000 to 60 organizations across the U.S.!

“There were so many creative ideas,” said Shelly Thompson, Director of Grants for Maddie’s Fund®. “From online foster portals, to domestic violence and emergency care foster programs, to increased engagement with elementary and middle schools — we’re thrilled to see how this money will be used to benefit pets all across the nation!”

Please join us in congratulating the grant winners, and be on the lookout for some really cool things happening at their organizations! You’ll find the name of the organization followed by the innovation category.
