Four Feet Companion Foundation is a registered charity, comprised of animal loving volunteers, who want to make our community a better place for pets and people. We support local animal charities through financial grants, supply donations, and volunteer support.

Our focus is on emergency situations and special projects such as spay/neuter initiatives, with a goal of expanding the impact these charities have on the community. We aid all companion animals; dogs, cats, horses, rabbits and potbelly pigs!

We have approved and granted to over 17 organizations, including:

Fort McMurray SPCA, Alberta Animal Rescue Crew Society (AARCS), Bear Valley Rescue, MEOW Foundation, Pets For Life Society, Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force, Cochrane & Area Humane Society, Red Deer SPCA Society, Pitbulls for Life, Underdogs Rescue, Persian Dreams and Canine Themes, Zoe's Animal Rescue, R.A.S.T.A., Tails to Tell Rescue, Tails of Help, Pound Rescue, and the Greater Edmonton Animal Rescue Society.

We raise money through individual donations, corporate sponsorship and various fundraisers that take place throughout the year.

Animal welfare organizations that are in need of funding will complete and submit the grant application located on our website. They must be a registered charity with Canada Revenue Agency, adhere to our grant criteria, operate in Alberta, and complete an application process that details how the funds will be used. We conduct thorough follow-ups on our funded projects, requiring updates and supporting expenditures.

Since November 2012, we’ve granted over $450,000 in grants and supplies to over 35 animal welfare groups. Such groups include CATF, AARCS, Cochrane & Area Humane Society, MEOW Foundation, Vets Without Borders (for Ukraine), and smaller groups like Cleo’s Karma Canine Rescue, the Seniors Resource Centre, Fairview and District Women’s Centre.

We have also donated over $5,000 worth of supplies and have helped thousands of animals. Our grants range depending on the need, with a maximum of $5,000 granted per application, with the exception of special circumstances, such as the Fort McMurray Wildfire Relief Fund.

By focusing on emergency situations and special projects, we ensure each dollar has the greatest impact. We do research and follow-up to ensure your donation dollars go to reputable, responsible and accountable charities. We also provide tax receipts in accordance with Canada Revenue Agency rules and regulations.
