Ryan Animal Rescue Foundation understands the importance of training and behavior modification for cats and dogs and the impact it has on their adopt-ability. We are proud to be one of the few foundations that offers grants specific to these needs. Funding is available to shelters and rescue organizations.  


  • Requests for behavior modification/training grants will only be considered when seeking assistance from certified trainers.

  • Trainers must emphasize a least intrusive, minimally aversive approach (LIMA)- Learn more about LIMA here.

  • Dog reactivity/aggression will be considered, but we do not provide funding for dogs with human bite history. Cats with bite history will be considered but will need full explanation of circumstances.   

  • Must submit report to RARF at the conclusion of the behavior modification detailing progress and trainer’s post-training recommendations.
