Friends of the Animal Center Foundation is pleased to announce a call for grant applications for 2023. FACF is a 501c3 organization that supports the operations of the Iowa City Animal Care and Adoption Center, as well as initiatives to keep Johnson County pets safe and in their homes. We are fortunate to work in such a generous community that in addition to fully supporting the medical care and foster care expenses of pets at our local shelter, we are able to make small investments in local organizations that support animal welfare.

Non-profit organizations that support companion animal welfare in Johnson County are invited to submit applications for 2023 FACF grants. Applications should identify a new initiative to assist pets in the community, provide a rationale, and include a projected budget. Applications are due by October 31, 2023. A grant review committee will meet in the fall to review grant applications, and recipients of the 2023 grant(s) will be notified no later than December 2023. Friends of the Animal Center Foundation looks forward to grant proposals that will further our mission of serving pets and their owners in our community.
