Mission Statement

Studies have found that there are paws-itive results:

  • 74% of pet owners report mental health improvements from pet ownership

  • Pets and animal therapy can help alleviate stress, anxiety, depression, and feelings of loneliness and social isolation.

  • Pet owners are less likely to suffer from depression than those without pets.

  • Companionship can help prevent illness and even add years to your life, while isolation and loneliness can trigger symptoms of depression.

  • Touch and movement are two healthy ways to quickly manage stress. Stroking a dog, cat, or another animal can lower blood pressure and help you quickly feel calmer and less stressed.

 

The Canadian Courage Project is currently partnered with the Toronto YouthLink Shelter & Transition home to provide an ongoing flow of donations to the homeless population in the GTA. Less than 50% of all homeless - shelters allow pets, help us fund the companionship of animals. 

Our mission is to provide the homeless youth community in the GTA with items for their furry companion such as:

  • Quality food ranging from the most natural and sustainable brands
  • Fully funded vaccinations
  • Blankets and thermal options to protect them against the harsh Canadian winters

  • Hygiene products
