continuing lil bub's legacy

During her time on Earth, BUB made a huge difference in the world of animal welfare and in the lives of millions of people worldwide. Lil BUB’s sprit, magic, and overwhelming energy are still with us, reminding us every day to be better. She started the first national fund for special needs pets, she was the subject of groundbreaking genetic and biological  research, she helped raise over $700,000 for animals in need, all while spreading a message of determination, positivity, and perseverance to people all over the world. Even though she’s no longer on Earth, she’s forever with us and among us. In her honor, Lil BUB’s Big FUND was established to continue her work helping special needs animals.


our mission

Lil BUB’s Big Fund exists to advocate for special needs companion animals and build a community that celebrates and fosters the human animal bond. With a focus on animals who are the most difficult to adopt, the most expensive to care for, and who are at a high risk of euthanasia. Lil Bub’s Big Fund provides grants to shelters nationwide and partners with shelters to create special needs foster program initiatives. We visit schools to promote kindness and inclusion. Through our work, we share BUB’s message of overcoming adversity and the knowledge that the things that make us different are worthy of being seen and appreciated.
