The pet crisis in Calgary has hit its breaking point.

Our shelters and rescues are battling the highest capacity levels we have ever seen in this city – leaving it almost impossible to surrender a pet during a time of need.

We are doing our best to keep up with demand as those being turned away are coming to us looking for hope and another solution.

Since January 2021, we have provided:

Pet Food Hampers

Homeless Pet Packs

Veterinary Patients Treated

Lily's Legacy

Domestic Violence Assistance
