Our Programs

Spay and Neuter Clinics

We set up a MASH type surgical unit in the community to safely spay or neuter, tattoo, vaccinate and deworm as many animals as possible. We have provided care for up to 739 animals in one weekend! These clinics are made possible with the support of up to 200 volunteers each day.

Dog Care and Management Program

Since 2016, our Dog Care and Management Program has advocated for a comprehensive, community-based, humane, and sustainable approach to managing dogs in First Nations. Upon invitation, we will provide guidance, resources, and mentoring to First Nations who would like to address public safety concerns and animal welfare issues in their communities.

Cat Care and Management Program

A pilot project started in 2019, with the goal of assisting municipalities with free roaming cat overpopulation. Our first on-site cat clinic was held in Carseland, AB in April 2019. 84 feral cats were trapped, spayed and neutered, treated for parasites, vaccinated (including rabies), tattooed and ear tipped. Local caregivers continue to monitor and care for the feral cats.

Disaster Relief

member of the Alberta Animal Disaster Response Team and the Calgary Emergency Management Agency, we provide assistance with disaster relief efforts in response to natural disasters, such as the 2019 Alberta wildfires, 2016 Fort McMurray wildfires and 2013 Alberta floods. We are a contributing member of the Companion Animal Disaster Response Steering Committee lead by the Alberta Veterinary Medical Association and Alberta Provincial Emergency Services.

Emergency Vaccine Clinics

Created to respond to highly contagious and potentially fatal Canine Distemper outbreaks in First Nation communities. Teams that include veterinarians go door to door and strategically vaccinate dogs that live close to any dogs showing illness.
