Veterinary Clinics & Shelters

Our veterinary and shelter partners are a vital part of the SafePet Ontario pet-safekeeping model. We are always in need of additional clinics to serve as confidential drop-off and reunion spots for our clients, and to provide veterinary care for our SafePet animals. Please read below for more information, and to learn about our Community Partners.


What does it mean to be a partner clinic or shelter?

We work with many dedicated veterinary clinics and animal shelters throughout the province, and they play a vital role in keeping our animals and clients safe.


We ask that our veterinary partners and shelters offer (some or all of) the following options for our clients, all of which would be organized in collaboration with our Placement Coordinator and / or Executive Director:

  • Providing a confidential drop-off / pick-up location for our clients' pets

  • Providing complementary wellness exams and vaccines to our SafePet animals

  • Serving as a confidential location for "urgent holds" (emergency situations where a pet needs to be housed safely immediately, for up to one week)

  • Providing ongoing veterinary care for our SafePet animals, paid for by SafePet or in conjunction with the Farley Foundation (if applicable)


If your clinic or shelter is interested in joining our SafePet coalition, please fill out the Interest Form below. We will be in touch to set up a time to discuss the process and requirements, and to answer any questions you may have.

Our Community Partners

SafePet Ontario is proud to collaborate with the Ontario Veterinary Medical Association (OVMA) and the Farley Foundation as Community Partners. The OVMA has a long-standing history of supporting survivors and their pets, and we are indebted to them for their work with the SafePet program, beginning in 2002.

Further, without the assistance of the Farley Foundation, it would not be possible for our charity to provide adequate veterinary care to all of our SafePet animals. Our ongoing partnership has allowed hundreds of animals to receive medications, exams, and treatment.
