Banfield announces new veterinary medical equipment grant

Nonprofit organizations or governments that work in animal welfare are eligible for the grant

Banfield Foundation has a new grant for expanding veterinary care for pets in need: the Veterinary Medical Equipment Grant.

Any organizations that work on animal welfare — whether governments or nonprofits — are eligible for the grant. The grant provides funding toward purchasing veterinary medical equipment for veterinary clinics and practices, including shelters, low-cost and mobile practices.

“As an organization, we deeply believe that all pets deserve access to veterinary care,” said Marta Monetti, president and chairman of the Banfield foundation board of directors. “We focus on bringing this belief to life by funding preventive care clinics across the country, providing grants to nonprofit organizations to help pay for veterinary care and now, by making new or improved equipment available to organizations that desperately need assistance in providing continuous care.”

Monetti said grant funding can be used to purchase medical equipment such as dental equipment, digital X-ray imaging systems and accessories, autoclaves and sterilizers, centrifuges, veterinary tables, surgical lighting and additional qualifying items. Funding can be used to cover the total purchase price of equipment up to $15,000 or towards the cost of higher priced items. The first grant cycle for the program will begin in June 2017.

“We continually strive to make a better world for pets and by funding veterinary medical equipment, we believe we can touch the lives of even more pets in need of critically important veterinary care,” Monetti added.

Organizations interested in applying for a grant can view grant applications under the Programs section of BanfieldFoundation.org.
