The Pet Safekeeping Program can help individuals escape family violence with their pet(s).
The Alberta SPCA’s Pet Safekeeping Program offers temporary care for the pets of domestic violence victims who need to escape an abusive situation and have no other place for their pets. Once accepted into the program, pets receive a full medical exam, vaccinations, and any required treatments.
The program began in mid-2014 in the greater Edmonton area and has been expanding in scope and range ever since.
Safety and confidentiality is maintained for the protection of all concerned.
We provide services to anyone affected by family violence regardless of situation, gender, sexual orientation, ethnicity or culture.
