Our mission is to support Ontario’s companion animals, people and animal organizations through humane education, community programs and financial assistance.
We believe humane education is a vital part of teaching everyone to make the kindest choices for people, animals and the environment. It is an integral part of our organization. We have several programs that provide educational opportunities, including our Travelling Library and School Presentation programs.
We design programs with the purpose of helping the greatest number of people and animals. One of the biggest ways to help that we see in Ontario right now is by increasing pet retention. It’s a fancy phrase for keeping people and pets together. We work tirelessly to create and maintain programs that address this important issue. We have three lost pet pages on Facebook that help reunite people with their pets (and reduces the number of pets ending up in shelters to be re-homed). We offer one-on-one consultations for people who want to re-home their pets, require financial aid or behavioural advise. Our goal is to help that person keep their pets if at all possible. Our newest initiative will help people in emergency situations with temporary foster care for their pets. Animals that would otherwise have no place to go, will soon be able to be reunited with their loving guardians.
We also have several programs designed specifically to help animal nonprofits in the Ontario community. Organizations can sign up to become members have gain access to free support through our Travelling Closet, event advertising and promotion of pets with special needs.
At this time we offer emergency grants to member organizations. These are generally life threatening situations or costly surgeries that would otherwise not be possible.
In the future we will be offering a micro lending program for pet guardians in Ontario that need assistance with small veterinary and food costs.
