Animal Welfare

We offer grants to charities that help animals that have been abused or are in danger of abuse. We also fund initiatives that reduce the risk of such abuse.

Programmes that encourage responsible pet ownership are of particular interest, as are interventions that address the needs of vulnerable people as well as animals.
