MAHF Mission

Our mission is to provide financial assistance to individuals and institutions in order to benefit the health and welfare of animals.

Companion Animal

The Companion Animal Fund was created to subsidize non-elective veterinary care for pets whose owners would otherwise be unable to afford it. Some of the groups most dependent on companion animals often experience difficulty in obtaining treatment in the case of unforeseen circumstances due to inadequate finances. Thus, MAHF created the Companion Animal Fund to help pet owners who have income under the federal poverty level, are on Medicaid or are on WIC (Women Infants & Children) get the necessary care for their beloved animals.

Grants for Education
and Research

Since 1977, MAHF has provided grants to help fund almost 50 research and educational projects through individuals and institutions to improve the health and welfare of all animals. These grants have improved veterinary care, animal housing and medical techniques for all species for animals. If you are looking for grant funding for your research or educational project, please submit an application for funding by June 1.
