We partner with communities who request guidance, support, and resources to humanely manage their companion animal population, in order to improve the safety of their community and the well being of the animals.
About the Canadian Animal Task Force (CATF)
The Canadian Animal Task Force (formerly known as the Alberta Spay Neuter Task Force) was formed in 2008 as a response to the need for a proactive solution to pet overpopulation. We held our very first on-site clinic for the Blood Tribe First Nation in September 2010 and in August 2018 we held our 60th clinic. To date, we have examined, spayed and neutered, tattooed, vaccinated and dewormed over 15,000 companion animals and placed an additional 6,300 surrendered animals with partner rescue groups.
CATF is a volunteer-driven registered charity that has over 100 volunteers at each spay neuter clinic which includes veterinarians, registered veterinarian technicians and general volunteers. Many of the communities that we work with cannot afford veterinary care for their pets. and as a result, uncontrolled breeding can lead to many unwanted, homeless puppies and kittens. Your donation can help us help these communities and their dogs and cats.
In 2019 we launched our newest program, Community Based Cat Care and Control, with the goal of assisting municipalities with free roaming cat overpopulation. The first onsite cat clinic was held in Carseland, AB in April 2019 and 80 feral cats were trapped, spayed and neutered, treated for parasites, vaccinated (including rabies), tattooed and ear tipped in a one day clinic. Local caregivers continue to monitor and care for the feral cats.
Thank you for your support! Your generosity is what fuels our organization!
