Grand County Pet Pals
(GCPP) wishes to thank the following
organizations for their support of our mission to promote responsible pet stewardship.


Thanks to Winter Park Resort for teaming up with Pet Pals to offer Pet Passes for the 2019/2020 season. In 2018, Winter Park Resort was able to donate $2,499 to Pet Pals!

Grand County Pet Pals wants to thank the Pet Finder Foundation for awarding us a grant for Mary Ann Kerstiens to attend the Dogs Playing For Life Mentorship in October at Longmont Humane Society. We are excited to gain knowledge and resources for having play groups at the Grand County Animal Shelter. Again many, many thanks from all of us and our furry friends!!!

The Grand Foundation has been a wonderful supporter of GCPP for many years. This year, we were awarded $2,550 for our Spay and Neuter Program. This was used to distribute 25 vouchers to the residents of Grand County. In the past, they were instrumental in providing money for new cat condos at the Shelter. We are so appreciative of their continued support.

The Pedigree Foundation awarded us funds in 2020 for a COVID-19 Disaster Relief Grant. We were awarded funds to help the Grand County Animal Shelter purchase pet supplies, provide wellness and grooming expenses to the shelter dogs, pay for professional services such as our professional dog trainer, and provide more spay/neuter vouchers to local pet owners in need.

The Town of Winter Park awarded us $1,500 in 2019 for our Spay and Neuter Program. This was used to provide 15 vouchers that were distributed to our residents of Grand County. We so appreciate their faithful support of GCPP.

A “thank you” must also go to our supporters at the Fraser Valley Lions Club Foundation. In 2019, they awarded us $2,100 to bring a professional dog trainer to the shelter to provide training and socialization skills to the dogs to make them more adoptable.

The Animal Assistance Foundation awarded us a $5,000 grant in 2018 in order to distribute 50 vouchers to our residents. These vouchers were awarded in November of 2017 and will no doubt all be distributed at our Voucher Day events by the end of this summer.

We have been fortunate to receive a grant award in the amount of $5,000 from the 2018 Adopt a Shelter Pet License Plate grant. This organization is also known as the Colorado Pet Overpopulation Fund. This money will be used for medical expenses for our resident “in Shelter” animals that awaiting their forever homes. This CPOF grant is funded by the sale of our Colorado Adopt a Pet license plates. Thank you for buying these for your automobiles!!

Another very faithful organization helping us with our mission, for many years, is The Forte Foundation. They have been awarding us $2,500 for many years and it is an unrestricted award that helps us very much with our operational expenses. This allows us to spend more on our mission! Thank you Cheryl Forte!

We are a proud partner of BISSELL Pet Foundation Partners for Pets! BISSELL Pet Foundation’s Partners for Pets program is designed to support shelters, rescue groups and spay/neuter organizations that are helping to reduce pet overpopulation across the United States.

And in addition to these grantors,

we would like to also thank the many wonderful

individuals who consistently support GCPP with

their kind and generous contributions!

Without you, we could not do what we do for our furry friends!
