Founded in 2002, the Farley Foundation is a leading charity of its kind, unique in North America for its longevity, effectiveness, impact, and brand recognition for its support of low-income Ontarians and their pets. Since 2002, the Foundation has disbursed over $6,000,000 to over 13,000 people and pets in need.

We are on a mission to double our annual impact by 2027 – to help over 2,000 people and pets per year, while doubling our fundraising capacity.

Our Vision and Mission:

At the Farley Foundation, we believe that Every pet deserves access to veterinary care.

To do this, we support the relationship between pets and people by generating and allocating resources to subsidize veterinary care for Ontario families in need.
