At Parachutes for Pets we understand and celebrate the human-animal bond and proactively work toward building strong community support systems to protect the connection between people and their animals.
Pet Support Programs
At Parachutes for Pets we are committed to assisting seniors, veterans, foster children, victims of violence and low-income families in our community work toward better health & welfare for themselves and their pets through accessible programs and resources.
If you are a low-income household within the city of Calgary you may qualify for assistance through one or more of our programs. Click on our programs below for more information.
Please note: We do not assist in new pet adoptions. We are happy to suggest strategies to plan for your new pet arrival, but as the owner, you need to be prepared for these expenses. (vaccines, spay/neuter, pet food costs, unexpected vet care, microchip, yearly check up, etc)

What do we consider an “emergency”?
An emergency is an urgent, unforeseen event such as a fire, flood, domestic violence incident, a child being placed in foster care with their pet, homeless in inclement weather etc. An emergency is NOT – expecting delivery outside our Wednesday delivery because you have run out of food and didn’t request far enough in advance, or requesting a hamper for a newly acquired pet you are not financially able to support. Applications can be submitted and if approved will be delivered on the following Wednesday.
Our volunteers will respond as soon as possible to actual emergency events.
