About PALS Pet Access League Society
PALS is a non-profit, registered, charitable organization located in Calgary, Alberta, dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of individuals through pet therapy. Volunteers and their pets currently visit at 50 facilities throughout the city including hospitals, seniors' long-term care facilities, classes for children with special needs, residential care and other care facilities that provide programs for individuals with limited access to the greater community.
In addition, PALS has partnered with the Calgary Public Library for the Story PALS literacy program. This program gives children with literacy issues an opportunity to improve their skills through reading to dogs.
All PALS programs are provided free to the participants and facilities we serve.
