The Canadian Animal Task Force (CATF), formerly known as the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force, is a registered charity based in Calgary, AB. We partner with communities who request guidance, support, and resources to humanely manage their companion animal population, in order to improve the safety of their community and well being of the animals.
Our programs include spay and neuter clinics, emergency vaccination clinics in response to canine distemper outbreaks, companion animal disaster relief, a community based Dog Care and Management Program, and a program for free roaming community cats.
Formed in 2008 as a proactive solution to pet overpopulation, we held our very first on-site clinic for the Blood Tribe (Kainai) Nation in September 2010. Since then, our team has completed 72 on-site clinics, examining, spaying and neutering, tattooing, vaccinating, and deworming almost 21,300 companion animals! We have also placed an additional 9300 surrendered animals with partner rescue groups.
