Animal welfare fund seeks grant proposals

Published: September 8, 2016 6:27 PM

Akron, OH – The Rosalie and Cecil Smith Fund of Akron Community Foundation is accepting grant applications from nonprofits that help reduce Summit County’s stray animal population. Grants are available for spaying and neutering feral cats and for spaying and neutering cats and dogs of low-income individuals.

The fund accepts requests from applicants with experience in, or a firm understanding of, animal spay and neuter methods. Local organizations may be affiliated with regional or national organizations, but their programs must be executed in Summit County. Last year, $7,500 was awarded to support spaying and neutering efforts in Summit County.

All requests are due by Thursday, Sept. 15. A link to the application is available at www.akroncf.org/applysmith.

Questions about the application process should be directed to John Garofalo, vice president of community investment, at 330-436-5624 or jgarofalo@akroncf.org.
