Assistance To Financially Challenged Pet Owners.

Tails of Help is seeking to raise commitments of $236,000 during its fiscal year ending May 31, 2022 through its fundraising campaigns. We estimate that it will cost our organization $59,000 to raise this amount. We anticipate that these fundraising costs will be entirely covered by corporate sponsorships and grants. This means that all additional donations will go toward our charitable activity of helping pets and families. We plan to use the donated money to fund essential veterinary care for ill or injured pets of Alberta owners who are experiencing financial hardship. Our goal is to keep pets healthy and with their loving families. For further information, please see our website at
www.tailsofhelp.ca, or contact Mark Patrick, Tails of Help Executive Director by email to info@tailsofhelp.ca or phone at 587-575-8415. Our mailing address is:
