Nevada-Based Nonprofit Receives Grant at News Conference Today

LAS VEGAS – Feeding Pets of the Homeless, a national animal welfare nonprofit based in Carson City, Nev., providing services nationwide, received a community grant today as part of the Las Vegas Super Bowl LVIII Host Committee Game Day Grant of the Super Bowl Legacy Grant program.

Founded in 2008, Feeding Pets of the Homeless provides free pet food, supplies, emergency veterinary care and wellness clinics to companion animals of the homeless population across the nation.

Genevieve Frederick, founder and president of Feeding Pets of the Homeless attended today’s Las Vegas news conference and said, “Nevada is our home and we are so excited to be hosting our first Super Bowl in the state. But there are so many people in the Las Vegas valley struggling and experiencing homelessness with their furry companions. This grant will help us continue our mission of saving pets and providing pet food and veterinary services through Southern Nevada programs.”

Since its founding, Feeding Pets of the Homeless has saved thousands of pets by providing more than 2 million pounds of food and nearly $5 million in veterinary assistance.

According to the NFL, at least 58 Super Bowl Legacy Grants will be divided across two categories: Pregame Grants, which awarded $1.2 million to immediate, high-impact community initiatives, and Game Day Grants totaling $1.8 million, to local non-profits. Both categories offer unrestricted funding for projects and programs to permanently improve the lives of Southern Nevadans in the areas of diversity, equity, and inclusion; education; health and wellness; social justice; youth and young adults.
