The S.A.F.E. Co is always looking for ways to give back to the community, we partnered with Pets in the Park in Saskatoon, SK, to donate 20% of the proceeds of any rentals from their supporters, to help raise funds to pay for medical care for sick, injured, orphaned and homeless animals from Saskatoon.
This year Pets in the park was a huge success, if you don’t know what Pets in the Park check out their link for more information.
What is Pets in the Park
In 2005 a group of Saskatoon residents, who are also dedicated animal lovers, came together to discuss the need to draw attention to the homeless, sick and injured cats and dogs while also raising funds to help these animals. The three founding charities, for which the funds go to, are New Hope Dog Rescue, Saskatoon SPCA and SCAT Street Cat Rescue.
This group formed a committee, which included not only members of the Saskatoon community, but also representatives from three local animal welfare organizations. This group of people committed to the goal of raising awareness and funds for Saskatoon’s animals, who are under the care of the three founding charities. It was decided that a major event was needed to be held yearly and that would bring families and their pets together to have fun while learning about animal welfare issues and raising funds to help homeless and injured animals.
This event was to be called Pets in the Park (PIP for short). This event would foster co-operation between the three founding animal welfare organizations, related public and private sector businesses, individuals and organizations with the goal of building a better community for animals and people of Saskatoon.
