Support Parachutes for Pets

and Make a Lifesaving


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!

Hot Weather Relief

Extremely hot temperatures exceeding 30 degrees Celsius are expected in Calgary this week, making outdoor conditions for pets and their guardians dangerous. Parachutes for Pets is working to provide safe refuge for pets through our safekeeping program, which will allow pet guardians to access safe spaces and resources. 

If you or someone you know is affected, please reach out to our Angel Team 368-999-6460

Parachutes for Pets, a registered Alberta not-for-profit (#349672, CRA 778351338RR0001), depends on donations and support to sustain our programs for low-income families and their pets. Your contributions, whether made through PayPal, CanadaHelps online platforms, or by mailing a cheque to our designated address at PO Box 12112 RPO Copperfield, Calgary, AB T2Z 1H4, play a crucial role in securing discounted supplies and services that keep our initiatives running smoothly. Donations exceeding $20 are eligible for a tax receipt. We emphasize that community support is the cornerstone of our ability to fulfill our mission of keeping families and their pets together, and we are immensely grateful for your continued support.

Rogers Birdies for Kids

Rogers Birdies for kids presented by AltaLink will match up to 50% of ALL donations to Parachutes for Pets!

Every donation made is entered to win tickets to a Flames Game this fall and a Meet & Greet with Mikael Backlund.

100% of donations through the Birdies for Kids campaign will go directly to Lily & Dexter’s Legacy. 

Lily & Dexter’s Legacy was founded by the Backlund family and supports kids in foster care, health care, and victims of domestic violence stay with their pets.

Donate Securities

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.
