Toronto Offering Assistance
June 24, 2020
Funded by PetSmart Charities® of Canada and donations from Toronto residents, the City of Toronto is providing assistance to pet owners in under-resourced communities and those facing homelessness, who are affected by the COVID-19 pandemic. A $30,040 grant from PetSmart Charities of Canada has provided 240 pet owners with gift cards to purchase pet food and supplies, such as cat litter and pee pads for dogs.
“Our pets provide much needed emotional support and I want to thank PetSmart Charities of Canada and our generous residents for providing the grant and donations, which is allowing us to help people take care of their beloved pets and keep them close. During this crisis, our pets are here for us and we are here for them.”
“Through this grant, PetSmart Charities is proud to support the pets and people of Toronto, and our hearts go out to those impacted by COVID-19. Throughout the uncertainty of this pandemic, PetSmart Charities of Canada remains committed to the health and welfare of pets during this extraordinary time of need.”
