Calgary’s First Pet Advocacy Centre: Supporting People and Pets in Need.

We understand the mental health and financial crisis happening in our community…

We’ve opened the first-of-its-kind Pet Advocacy Centre to help vulnerable Calgarians and their pets.

Inspired by the renowned Sheldon Kennedy Advocacy Centre, this pet-focused facility is located at 6120 1A Street SW and is set to revolutionize the support provided to Calgary’s vulnerable populations, including seniors, veterans, children in foster care, the homeless, and their cherished pets.

This center significantly enhances our capacity to provide essential services to those in need. Building upon the success of its existing programs, this centre will serve as a comprehensive hub for pet food distribution, basic pet care services, and public education initiatives.

Through strategic collaborations with community partners, we aim to establish the Pet Advocacy Centre as a one-stop destination for our clients and their pets. Not only though these partnerships but with a specialized volunteer base, we will achieve support level we would like to offer to the individuals that use our services.

We are committed to serving Calgary’s most vulnerable populations, ensuring that the bond between individuals and their pets remains unbroken even during times of hardship.

With the Pet Advocacy Centre, we strive to provide comprehensive support, resources, and education to enable pet guardians to provide the best possible care for their beloved companions.

The Pet Advocacy Center offers a range of resources, including:
