Mission Statement: Keeping pets and families together by subsidizing necessary pet care to low income individuals.
Who We Are:
Parachutes for Pets was founded in February 2019 and is preparing its official launch May 2019. It had been in the planning stages for sometime but after a local story broke about a sick and neglected dog abandoned in a local pet store Parachutes was officially born. Pet care can be expensive, especially if your pet relies on daily medication. Upon approval, Parachutes for Pets will assist in funding with the areas below.

Senior Citizens(must be receiving government pension)
Individuals receieving AISH
Homeless individuals with pets
