This year, Fresh Start is awarding $12,000 grants to shelters across five regions in the U.S. It's also awarding two $3,000 grants to two runner-up organizations in each region. One shelter from each region will also be awarded with a $3,000 "Wunderdog" grant.

The Fresh Start program was created in 2018 to provide support for overlooked cats and dogs who are often deemed unadoptable. Freshpet’s Fresh Start program has awarded more than $100,000 in contributions in the past three years.
