PS4Ds grant recipients with their adopted pets

      Grant Program

We support the Down syndrome community and advocate for the adoption of foster, rescue, and shelter animals. We have re-named our company’s philanthropy grant program, PS4Ds, to Down for Pets.

Rescue a Life, Gain a Companion

PetScreening supports the Down syndrome community and advocates for the adoption of foster, rescue, and shelter animals. Down for Pets (formerly named PS4Ds) is a philanthropic grant program that gives financial support to individuals with Down syndrome whose quality of life could be made better by adopting an animal. This includes obtaining an animal for the primary purpose of owning a companion animal.
