Request a Grant Writer

Grants to USA, Canada, and International researchers and veterinary professionals and students for research related to cat health. Eligible applicants include faculty and practicing veterinarians, veterinary residents and students, faculty researchers, post-doctoral fellows, and PhD candidates. Proposals should address the effect that dietary phosphorus and calcium to phosphorus ratio have on renal health in cats.

The overall goal of such research is to provide evidence that will lead to scientific consensus on safe levels and types of dietary phosphorus for feline diets. High priority areas have been identified and will be given special consideration. These include:

  • Investigation of factors that influence phosphorus bioavailability and metabolism including source and form of phosphorus in foods.
  • Identification of biomarkers of renal injury, especially markers that detect early kidney changes.
  • Identification of in vitro assays that correlate with in vivo function of phosphorus sources.

Funding is available to fund proposals of sufficient scientific merit, relevance and potential to impact feline health.

Investigators from across the world conduct feline health studies supported by EveryCat Health Foundation grants. This is truly the only foundation exclusively funding cat health studies worldwide.

EveryCat Health Foundation only supports research for which humane treatment of animals is assured. Any grant request including the use of animals must first be approved by the Institutional Animal Care and Use Committee of the researcher’s institution. Next, EveryCat’s expert panel of researchers, veterinarians and cat fanciers and advocates complete an extensive review of the justification for the use of animals in the research.

When it is determined live animals must be used by an investigator, only the fewest animals required will be approved, and only if the living conditions are sufficiently described and accepted as well within the definition of humane care. Any discomfort experienced by the animals must be treated.

EveryCat does not fund projects requiring euthanasia as an endpoint or the induction of disease or injury unless the nature of the disease or condition studied offers such significant improvement in feline health and such means are justified. The Foundation does not fund studies where the induction of disease is terminal.

The Foundation does not fund salaries of investigators, major equipment expenditures, travel, publication, or indirect costs. Salaries, supplies, and animal care costs not justified may be deleted from the budget. (EveryCat does fund smaller technical equipment or supplies necessary and justified for performing and completing the project.)

Pre-Application Information:

The deadline for receipt of applications is Monday, April 12, 2021, 11:59 PM EDT.

Awards will be announced by early June 2021.

At the conclusion of an accepted project, every effort must be made to adopt the cats used into loving homes.
