Here in Ontario we have a program called SafePet. It is an organization that provides a foster service to individuals and families that are in a domestic abuse situations. Many of the owners of these animals are waiting to go to a shelter, and they will not go unless they know their pet has a safe place to go as well.
Where is the need for fosters greatest?
- Windsor and Niagara (desperately!)
- Collingwood / Wasaga
- Kitchener / Waterloo / Cambridge
Please consider applying to become a SafePet foster, or signing up to become a monthly supporter on Canadahelps.org. And if you have friends, family, or colleagues in the areas mentioned above, encourage them to become a SafePet foster today. This is a completely confidential service and no one other than the SafePet program will contact you when fostering. Go to: Safe Pet to sign up.
