The North Carolina Veterinary Medical Association (NCVMA) is a professional organization of veterinarians dedicated to compassionate animal care and quality medicine.  The NCVMA seeks to enhance health and welfare for all animals and supports shelters throughout North Carolina in their efforts to control, house and treat unowned, stray and relinquished animals.

Proposals are solicited from public and private animal shelters, as defined by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture & Consumer Services Veterinary Division.  The NCVMA is offering a one-time grant of up to $2500 to assist North Carolina shelters in making improvements and to ensure shelters are in compliance with the NC Department of Agriculture inspection guidelines.  Monies may only be used to make necessary repairs to housing facilities and primary enclosures or to make necessary facility upgrades that support animal welfare in the shelter.  Grant monies from the NCVMA may not be used for personnel expenditures or for medications.
