SafePet Ottawa is a Registered Canadian Charity


SafePet Ottawa is a registered charity! This means we can provide donors with tax receipts.

 

It feels good to donate. We are not funded by any government bodies or programs. All of our equipment, pet food and veterinary fees are paid for by money raised by fundraising or given to us by generous people like you! Our SafePet Ottawa Veterinary clinics provide free intake examinations; they also bring companion animals up to date on all necessary vaccinations.

Your donations make it possible for us to provide a higher level of veterinary care when it is needed; to deworm and treat pre-existing medical conditions, for example.  Over the summer months, we always treat pets to prevent heart worm. It adds up, but it is worth it!

Your donations also provide our foster animals with food, bedding, dishes, leashes and crates.  With your help, SafePet foster animals can be sent home to their owners with their “I’m Going Home” package that includes the bedding they are now used to, the dishes they now call their own and the crates that gave then their sense of “my quiet space.” These items make their transition back to their owner easier for the Owner and much easier for the foster Pet.

The SafePet Ottawa pet foster program is a non-profit organization. We ask for generous people to donate as well as raise funds by fundraising and applying for grants. Money is always needed for veterinary exams, vaccinations, sterilization, emergency procedures, medications, good quality pet food, high caloric supplements, gas for transportation, animal equipment, grooming, cleaning supplies and many other necessities.

ITEM DONATIONS

SafePet Ottawa is grateful to accept your new pet tools & equipment, gift cards or rewards & loyalty cards, as well as many other needed items. Please note that because of the generosity of Oven Baked Tradition we are no longer accepting donations of pet food.

Please see the list below for ideas of what is in need right now:

At this time, due to COVID-19 we are not accepting physical donations – we will update this page as well as our social media when we are safely able to accept your generous donations again.
