Hi, we’re the Hub City Animal Project.
We’re on a mission to tackle the issues at the root of animal homelessness in Spartanburg County. We're animal lovers. We're advocates devoted to eliminating the unnecessary suffering of animals in our community. And we're a voice for the voiceless pets that deserve health, happiness, and a safe home.
Through funding and collaboration, we help animal welfare groups and municipalities get the resources they need to create long-term change and reduce shelter intake in our community.
Everyone loves animals – but not everyone is able to care for them. Each year, millions of pets are sent to shelters due to:
- Lack of owner’s financial resources
- Lack of access to pet information
- Lack of access to veterinary care, including spay and neuter
- Any circumstance which may compromise animal welfare and threaten the pet-owner relationship, such as divorce, foreclosure, death, lack of pet identification, or minor pet behavioral problems
The Hub City Animal Project proactively addresses these issues by funding and empowering the organizations that work to prevent animals from entering the shelter and rescue system.
We inform animal owners about the root causes of animal homelessness, as well as the proper and humane treatment of animals, and work to provide solutions for better animal care.
We help pets stay with their owners (when appropriate) and out of the shelter, and assist owners in finding free or low-cost spay and neuter options.
We provide grants for animal welfare organizations that implement programming to prevent animal suffering and homelessness in Spartanburg County.
Please read our Grant Guidelines to see if your program qualifies for a Hub City Animal Project Grant. All 2018 grant applications must be submitted by the deadline on Friday, September 21, 2018, at 5:00PM.
