Paws for Deployment


The Paws for Deployment program fosters pets while their owners are away on a military mission.
No longer will troops have to struggle with tough decisions about what to do with their pets.

This is the only program of its kind in Canada and it gives a temporary home to animals, easing the stress of separation anxiety.

Barriefield Animal Hospital will be a surrogate family for the pet and provide love and bonding during the period of time they are lonesome for their owners. It makes it less traumatic for the pet and the pet owner.

Service members or their families who need a safe home for their pets can request services either through the group's website at or by calling 613-544-7387 to begin the process.
