Paws & Support

About the Program

Thanks to generous donors and our friends Paws & Support is a free program for dogs, cats, and critters while their owners seek short-term in-hospital treatment or transition out of domestic violence relationships. This program may also be able to help in short-term housing crisis situations when space permits.

Pets live with trained temporary foster families and are reunited once their owner is in a healthy, safe space. Pet owners can feel confident their pet is well cared for while they focus on their own well-being.

Foster Families

Fosters receive full support from the Nova Scotia SPCA during the pet’s stay but will be required to adhere to strict confidentiality.  All animal costs such as veterinary care, food, bedding, and toys are provided.

Space in this program is limited to the number of fosters available so your support is essential.
