The Alberta SPCA is excited to be taking part in Giving Tuesday on Tuesday Dec 3, 2019. Help us provide shelter to needy dogs!
The Alberta SPCA has teamed up with Edmonton Catholic Schools to build dog houses for needy families and their pets. Our goal is to build 20 large and 10 medium-sized dog houses. The families will be identified by Alberta SPCA Peace Officers through their regular duties.
The cost of the materials for this campaign is $5,350.
Help us to reach our goal of raising enough money to help build 30 dog houses.

Alberta SPCA Peace Officers often come across dog owners who love their pets very much but do not have the financial means to buy a pre-made dog house. Often these Albertans will offer some form of shelter for their dog that does not offer appropriate warmth and protection from the elements.
Your donation helps us build dog houses to donate to people in these situations.
We want to thank Edmonton Catholic Schools for their willingness to build the dog houses in construction classes as part of this program.
We want to thank Douglas Homes Ltd for a significant donation of $5,350 toward the program in memory of their office dog Cassie.
We would like to thank Goldwing Construction for putting together the dog house plans for us.
We would like to thank Lowe’s for providing the materials at a discounted price.
Funds raised in excess of the requirements for this special project will be used for the Alberta SPCA’s highest priority needs.
