Grants of up to $25,000 to USA researchers and research teams affiliated with nonprofit and public entities, including IHEs, veterinary clinics and hospitals, and other institutions for projects to prevent and respond to cruelty to animals. Funding is intended for research that will inform public policy, the legal field, and/or criminal and clinical casework. Applications from researchers from historically (and currently) under-resourced backgrounds and/or those who are in the early stages of their careers are strongly encouraged.
Enhancing communities’ capacity for coordinated responses to animal cruelty is critical to the welfare of animals and people. The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals® (ASPCA®) aims to advance its 2030 goal of empowering communities to prevent and respond effectively to cruelty by promoting the growth of high-quality research that will advance anti-cruelty policy initiatives and heighten awareness and responses to animal cruelty by key professional audiences. To this end, the ASPCA invites grant applications for the Cruelty Research Seed Grant program. This program seeks to support research that advances knowledge in preventing and responding to animal cruelty.
The 2021 Cruelty Research Seed Grant program solicits research proposals that will inform public policy, the legal field, and/or criminal and clinical casework. Of particular interest is research that heightens awareness of animal cruelty and provides evidence that informs key community stakeholders and allied professionals in preventing and responding to this animal welfare issue.

In order to be responsive to this request, projects must have a clear research question with appropriate methodology to address the proposed research aims.
