Filomena Farms is appreciative of the support we've received from the community of volunteers and donors. Every donation goes directly to the allocation of grants to fund projects for small to medium-sized animal rescues, supporting organizations that lower euthanasia rates in animal shelters and helping families keep their pets during times of hardship that would otherwise force pets into the shelters.
As Filomena Farms continues to grow, we hope to add even more grant opportunities for small and medium sized rescue organizations. Please read on to discover more about our grant recipients over the years. We are so excited to help hard-working animal welfare groups like these. We thank them for their tireless efforts and for making possible our mission to support organizations that strive to lower euthanasia rates and keep pets in their homes. Congratulations to each of our wonderful grant recipients!
2020 Board Merit Award
Recipient: Hope for Animals International
Little Niko is a longterm foster dog under the care of Hope for Animals International. He has an irreversible spinal condition that leaves him with hind limb paralysis. We became aware of Niko’s need for an orthopedic bed and a special harness that helps his caretakers gently assist his mobility. We had to help! Niko is the very first recipient of our Board Merit Award and his grant in-kind totaled about $120.00.
WINTER 2020/2021 fILOMENA'S wISH hOLIDAY gRANT
Recipient: Heading Home Animal Rescue
Heading Home Animal Rescue's commitment to a sickly kitten named Buhita is inspirational and heartbreaking. Sadly, this year's holiday grant became an "in memorium" award, as Buhita passed away before receiving life-saving surgery to correct a vascular defect. Regardless of this tragedy, we know that Heading Home will use this grant to continue their efforts and to help others like Buhita. It is an honor to extend the 2020/2021 Filomena’s Wish grant to Heading Home Animal Rescue in memory of Buhita for the amount of $300.00.

Four Paws to Love's working relationships with local animal control facilities is commendable. We are impressed by their partnership with a local small business for adoption events; it is clear that their team strives to create and maintain synergistic relationships within the community. In recognition of their commitment to “giving each adopter and animal the personal touch needed to make a lifelong match”, we are delighted to award their organization $1,000.00.
Dulcinea’s Distinction: South County Tail Waggers
South County Tail Waggers' “we have to do more” approach to rescue is truly inspirational. They reach beyond the trench work of rescue and dive headlong into the community as evidenced by their Community Influence program and their spay/neuter clinic initiative. They say it takes a village to make a difference and their team is certainly working hard to form the village required to do so for animals in need, both through education and example. In recognition of their efforts, we are delighted to award their organization $500.00.
Petrociño’s Prize: Every Pet’s Dream
Every Pet’s Dream clearly pours heart and soul into each case advocated. The heart can often easily be pushed into the background when faced with the countless lives in need we see every day in animal welfare. We thank them for never tiring, for never growing cold, and for always sharing their warmth with those who need it most. In recognition of their commitment to ensuring peace and comfort to animals in their final days through their Forever Care Program, we are delighted to award their organization $250.00.
