Building a Regional Centre for Pets & People


By raising the standard of care for vulnerable pets, the standard of care is raised for vulnerable people. This is why we are embarking on a $14 million fundraising campaign to build a new 19,200 square foot Regional Centre for Pets and People on 5 acres of land in Collingwood, Ontario.

Our current challenges:

  • A cramped hospital with very limited space for examinations and surgeries
  • Animals recovering from surgery in noisy, high-traffic spaces
  • Dog kennels requiring frequent repairs
  • Lack of parking for community members accessing our hospital services
  • No indoor space for community groups, classes, or outreach services

With your support, we will build a centre where animals find safety and life-saving care, where youth find companionship and belonging, where seniors find purpose, and where all members of the community find compassionate and inclusive support.
