Tails of Help Month is our annual public fundraising campaign where you, members of the pet loving community, can join together with veterinary clinics, animal enthusiasts, and businesses from all over the province to provide aid for animals in need.

During the 2018 campaign from November 1 through December 21, small fundraising events on behalf of Tails of Help will be a great way to raise awareness and funds in order let us do what we do: helping keep the four-legged members of low income Alberta families happy and healthy for years to come!

Our friends in Ontario, the Farley Foundation, have been doing this for years, and now it’s our turn to take part in the fun. After learning a lot from consultation with the Farley Foundation, Tails of Help is ready to bring this fun and easy initiative to sunny Alberta, and you can get involved!

Our leading sponsor for 2018, VCA Canada, has generously agreed to help us work out the details, and we can’t wait to see it grow bigger and better than our previous campaigns.

So mark your calendars and talk to your local veterinary clinics, because the 2018 Tails of Help Alberta Challenge will be here before you know it, and we can’t wait to see what’s in store!

2017 Alberta Challenge Winners – Coach Hill Animal Hospital

Thank you to our generous sponsors:

Premier and Tails of Help Alberta Challenge Title Sponsor: VCA Canada

*Tails of Help is seeking to raise commitments of $330,000 during its fiscal year ending May 31, 2019 through its fundraising campaigns.  We estimate that it will cost our organization $120,000 to raise this amount. We anticipate that these organizational costs will be entirely covered by corporate sponsorships and grants. This means that 100% of all additional donations will go toward our charitable activity of helping pets and families. Please note that this is just the second full year that we will have a paid staff member working for the charity. We plan to use the money to fund essential veterinary care for ill or injured pets of Alberta owners who are experiencing financial hardship. Our goal is to keep pets healthy and with their loving families. For further information, please see our website at www.tailsofhelp.ca, or phone Mark Patrick, Interim Executive Director at 587-575-8415 or email info@tailsofhelp.ca . Our mailing address is 1260 – 5328 Calgary Trail NW, Edmonton, T6H 4J8. Tails of Help is incorporated under the Companies Act (Alberta) and is a registered charity under the Income Tax Act (Canada).
