Average Cost of Owning a Dog Up 23.3% in 3 Years

Owning a pet has become increasingly expensive due to rising inflation, vet costs, food, pet insurance, grooming, and medication. Here at Parachutes for Pets, we receive an average of 100 calls per day from people seeking assistance for their pets. Often, clients jeopardize their own health and end up in the hospital because they prioritize their pets over themselves.

We are honored that our efforts and determination to make a difference in the lives of Calgary pet owners have been recognized in the House of Commons. Michelle Rempel Garner, Conservative Member of Parliament, mentioned Parachutes for Pets in her address to highlight the affordability crisis in Alberta.
