Urgent Animal Care Food Drive

As COVID-19 drags on through the winter months, we need to ensure food banks are stocked with pet food so people aren’t left making difficult decisions about how they will feed their furry family members. To keep pets with the families who love them, our goal is to distribute 260,000 meals over the next four months to feed pets across Ontario.

We are asking anyone who is in a position to give to consider making a donation to help keep food bowls full this winter across the province. A donation of just $30 will feed a dog for about two weeks! 


In collaboration with pet food suppliers, community partners and ambassadors, a total of 30,000 lbs of food is already on its way to over 100 communities across the province. Since April, the Ontario SPCA and Humane Society has distributed close to 500,000 lbs of pet food to help people struggling to care for their animals during COVID-19. 

Whether the food will be sent to families in the North where food is very expensive and often difficult to find, those who rely on food banks to put healthy meals on the table, or individuals facing homelessness who want to make sure their furry companions are fed, we all have the same goal: healthy, happy animal friends.

And your generous gift today helps that goal become a reality for these beloved pets.

Thank you for being such a true friend to animals.

Urgent Animal Care Fund

Our animals need you now more than ever. The long-term costs of care for animals in shelters are adding up, and not just for the Ontario SPCA, but for other SPCAs and humane societies across the province. With crucial fundraising events on pause due to COVID-19, funds are needed to ensure we can continue to be there for the animals.

By donating to the Urgent Animal Care Fund, you will help us continue to care for innocent animals in need. Your gift will also help ensure resources are available to help animals in communities across Ontario if their families are faced with challenges caring for them as a result of COVID-19.
