Pegasus Foundation Priorities
Education and Outreach: The Pegasus Foundation supports special initiatives that educate the general public and engage others in animal and environmental protection. In addition, the Foundation organizes trainings and meetings, distributes resources, and develops communications networks among grantees with similar interests.
Animal Welfare: The Pegasus Foundation focuses its support of companion animal programs on spay-neuter services and humane education in several regions, including Cape Cod, Massachusetts; Southeast Florida; Native American lands in southwestern United States; and the islands of the Caribbean.
Wildlife and Habitat Protection: The Pegasus Foundation funds select wildlife protection organizations in specific geographic regions, including marine mammals on Cape Cod, Massachusetts; sharks worldwide; rhinos and elephants in Africa.
In 2015, Pegasus priorities include stopping the slaughter of rhinos and elephants for their horns and tusks, marine animal rescue and education, and wildlife rescue and rehabilitation. We look to expand our efforts in by promoting amimal welfare in U.S. tribal communities and continue our support of animal welfare and land conservation efforts nationally and all over the world.
Ending Greyhound Racing
Through the generous support of the AGGWARD Fund of the Pegasus Foundation, we were happy to support the ongoing efforts of GREY2K USA. The GEY2K USA Education Fund is a national non-profit organization working to educate the public about the cruelty of dog racing.

The Pegasus Foundation is teaming with the International Fund for Animal Welfare and others to find solutions to the horrific poaching of African elephant ivory in Africa and to support rangers on the ground fighting against extinction of the world’s largest land mammal.
Marine Animal Rescue
As it has in years past, the Pegasus Foundation continues to support the Marine Mammal Disentanglement Program of the Center for Coastal Studies in Provincetown, Massachusetts. Since 1984, the Center for Coastal Studies has freed more than ninety large whales from life threatening entanglements, using techniques developed by Center staff.
