Keep people and pets together Sponsorships
One of the ways we help keep people and pets together is by providing funds and in kind donations to people facing emergency financial hardship. When someone is experiencing precarity they may have recently lost a job, their house, a partner or be facing a natural disaster or homelessness. We believe all pets and guardians deserve quality care and support, will you help us? All funds go towards helping keep people and pets together, and money is directly sent to a client’s veterinarian to ensure the animal gets the help they need.
Support someone and their pet during an emergency
This package allows us to provide basic supplies for one pet after a natural disaster (like fire). We’ll provide food, bedding, bowls, toys, litter etc. to help both pet and guardian feel comfy and secure. We also provide referrals to other organization that can assist.
Provide food for a pet for 1 month
Many people will feed their pets before they feed themselves. We want to make sure both people and pets have full stomachs! Help us feed a pet for one month so their guardian can focus on feeding themselves. We also provide information to our clients about local pet food bank options.
Cost of euthanasia
End of life care is expensive, add precarity into the mix and a heartbreaking situation becomes impossible. Guardians who want to provide end of life care for their pets, including humane euthanasia and cremation need your support.
Cost of X-rays/ultrasound or other diagnostic tools
In order to determine why a pet isn't feeling, a veterinarian may recommend diagnostic tools which can cost $1000 or more. These tools are essential for figuring out what's wrong and what next steps are needed to helping the pet feel better. Help contribute to the costs of diagnostic testing for one of our clients.
Support the costs of surgery
Non-routine surgery is extremely expensive but crucial to saving lives. Help a pet get back on their feed and reunite with their guardian for many more years of love.
Second Hope Circle Program and Administrative Sponsorships
We offer a variety of programs that help bring humane education and resources to people across Ontario! Help us spread the word about the awesome animal organizations doing amazing things in Ontario. Or get us to a new location to provide education to those who want it most!
Send 5 letters
Cover 5 letters to non profit organizations about our programs. We send out carefully crafted postcards that inform social service organizations about our community programs. Our programs give organizations more options for their clients!
Cover a grocery card to reimburse a research participant for their time. Research can help us develop more effective programs! In our last research study we were unable to reimburse participants which greatly affected the number of responses we gathered. Most of our participants are pet guardians facing poverty and precarity and we would like to reimburse them with a grocery gift card.
Cover gas so that we can install the Travelling Library at a host location
Our Travelling Library has over 300 books not commonly found in traditional libraries. All the titles promote compassion and critical thinking about people, animals and the environment! Help us get our library to more locations across Ontario!
Administrative costs for 1 month
Including web hosting, phone service, postal box, bank fees etc.
