Metro Pet Market has always been as pasionate about giving back to the community, as it is for fostering vibrant pet health and responsible guardianship.
From the beginning, as a proud local and independent business, Metro Pet Market has supported an impressive record of fundraising events, sponsorships and donations, that ultimately result in helping animals in need, both locally and globally.
In efforts to expand and streamline our community initiatives, we have incorporated and registered the Metro Pet Foundation.
WHAT WE ARE:
The Metro Pet Foundation is a registered and incorporated not-for-profit organization dedicated to helping animals, locally and globally.
The Metro Pet Foundation is:
- 100% volunteer-driven
- 100% funded by fundraising and donations
- 100% of monies earned will help animals directly (no money is spent on administration).
- We are 100% transparent and accountable.
WHO WE ARE:
A board of talented, professional, fun, inspired individuals -- from all fields -- dedicated to helping animals in need, locally and globally. Stay tuned for introductions.
WHAT WE DO:
We strive to do good!
We donate to help animals in need, typically via existing registered rescues, shelters and organizations who are doing an excellent job already. We fundraise, then donate and sponsor anything and everything that will help these organizations, from the fundamentals like foods, supplements and treats, to spay and neuter surgeries and other medical emergencies.

We currently pay for one spay surgery per month for the Regina Cat Rescue, and one spay surgery every second month for The Pack Project.
Although it can be profitable to sell pets, we have chosen to advocate responsible pet acquisition through shelters, rescues or reputable breeders.
According to No Puppy Mills Canada, 10 million “excess” dogs and cats will be killed in shelters this year. These are generally happy, healthy animals who, through no fault of their own, are unwanted.
Selling pets through retail stores can lead to irresponsible breeding and the proliferation of puppy mills and “backyard breeders.”
If you’re considering an addition to your family, check out the local shelters and rescues – give a pet a second chance! If you want a purebred, do your research and find a reputable breeder. Meet with the breeder to be sure you approve of his or her practices.
Be part of the solution: please spay & neuter
We are happy to provide the following monthly food sponsorships:
