PET FOOD BANK & HARLEY’S HAMPER PROGRAM

Named after Harley Smith – a Weimaraner with an intense love of food and dog parks. Sadly, Harley passed away at the age of 9 after a courageous battle with lymphoma. Harley’s parents are the founders of Parachutes for Pets and knew that a program to help ensure that animals always had a full belly would honour his memory perfectly.

Parachutes for Pets supplies the pet food & supplies for Veteran’s hampers on a monthly basis, as well for Horizon Housing and Seniors Resource Society through the holidays.

Low-income households within Calgary city limits can also apply for a food hamper once every 3 months for a maximum of 4 hampers per year.

Only 1 program can be accessed at a time – please do not apply for all programs at once. If you are applying for a one time emergency hamper, please indicate your circumstances in your application.

Please note that proof of low-income status is mandatory and one of the following is required:

  • CPP payment stub/deposit slip
  • AISH card
  • payment stub from a low-income program
  • letter from a support worker stating low-income status

Effective Wednesday December 8th, 2022:

We will no longer be delivering hampers, with exception of seniors and to social workers (for distribution). If you are in need of a hamper, we have pick up options available. Please fill out a hamper request and we will reach out with information.

Parachutes for Pets Privacy Policy

Pet food bank pick ups are Wednesdays. Details will be provided once requests are approved.
We appreciate your continued patience and understanding.

I understand that animals need to be switched to new foods slowly by gradually introducing the new food mixed into the old food over a period of 7-14 days. I understand that by not doing this that there is a greater risk for my pet to get gastrointestinal upset. By submitting this request I agree to not hold Parachutes for Pets; Parachutes for Pets staff, Board of Directions, contractors, or volunteers; or food supplies responsible for any illness or concerns that may arise from feeding my pet food supplied by Parachutes for Pets.
