When natural disasters strike, the PetSmart Charities of Canada team takes swift and compassionate action to deploy Disaster Response funding where it's needed most. The ongoing wildfires in Alberta and Atlantic Canada have already displaced thousands of people and their beloved pets, creating a dire situation that demands immediate attention.
To address this urgent need, PetSmart Charities of Canada is committed to making a meaningful impact. We are proud to announce an initial grant funding of $185,000 to support our valued partners, including the Nova Scotia SPCA and Northern Lights Regional Humane Society, as they bravely navigate the front lines of disaster relief efforts.
Supporting Our Partners
Our grant funding serves as a lifeline for these remarkable organizations as they tirelessly work to safeguard the well-being of pets and their owners during these trying times. Here's how PetSmart Charities of Canada is making a difference:
1. Keeping Evacuated Pets Safe
Our partners are on the ground, ensuring that evacuated pets are safe and cared for. From providing temporary shelter to ensuring they receive proper medical attention, the Nova Scotia SPCA and Northern Lights Regional Humane Society are unwavering in their commitment to animal welfare.
2. Rescuing Pets in Danger
When disaster strikes, pets can find themselves in perilous situations. Our funding enables our partners to go behind fire lines, risking their own safety to rescue pets trapped in danger zones. Their dedication and bravery in these moments are truly inspiring.
3. Supporting Pet Parents
In addition to assisting pets directly, our partners are also extending a helping hand to pet parents in their communities. Access to essential supplies like food, litter, and other necessities can make a world of difference during a crisis. PetSmart Charities of Canada is proud to support these initiatives.
