Last chance to apply for animal welfare grants
Animal welfare organisations are encouraged to jump online to submit their applications for the 2019-2020 Animal Welfare Fund grant program, with submissions closing this Friday 17 May.
Small grants of up to $10,000 and large grants of up to $50,000 are available to Northern Territory (NT) organisations delivering projects that:
- improve animal wellbeing
- raise community awareness of animal welfare responsibilities
- help promote and improve animal management practice, particularly in remote communities.
Last year AusTurtle secured funds to raise community awareness of the new rehabilitation centre; encouraging members of the public to report sick and injured sea turtles for rescue, treatment, recuperation and release.
Organisations are also encouraged to partner with like-minded organisations and councils. In 2018, PAWS Darwin joined with City of Darwin and Litchfield Council to conduct free and low-cost desexing programs.
Please visit the GrantsNT website to read the 2019-2020 grant guidelines and submit an application.
