At Parachutes For Pets, we’re dedicated to helping low-income individuals improve their pets’ health and well-being. Our accessible programs make a difference. Join us on this impactful journey!
As a severe cold snap settles in on the City of Calgary, Parachutes for Pets is helping bring pets in from dangerously cold conditions. Temperatures are expected to reach the potential depths of -30 degrees Celsius this week. Our Angel Team is ready to support those in emergency situations.
What is the Angel Team?
The PFP Angel Team is a group of dedicated volunteers who are ready to help 24/7. Our team consists of animal behaviour experts, vets and RVT’s and Social workers on standby. This service is available to Calgarians in emergency situations such as fire, flood or inclement weather. We provide Calgarians the resources to get themselves and their pets to a safe location or intervene when needed.
Please consider donating to help our most vulnerable and people escape the harsh elements.
If you are unable to drop of physical donations but still interested in supporting our most urgent needs, please visit our Online Donation Wishlist, powered by Doodle Dogs.
Doodle Dogs is a local pet company that offered to take our wish list off of Amazon and has worked hard to cultivate this list to ensure those supporting Parachutes For Pets can donate these much-needed items at a reduced cost to help their dollars go further.We are currently looking for dog food for all ages and breeds. These are an essential part of our dog hamper program. Your donations will help us to support fur babies in our community.

A donation of securities or mutual funds is the most efficient way to give charitably. Since capital gains taxes don’t apply, our charity receives the full fair market value when the security is sold, and you get a tax receipt which reflects your larger contribution. This allows you to give more and get more. Learn how it works.
