#HelpOurPetsTO was founded in 2017 by ThinkHatch, a marketing company that provides Fractional CMO services to growing startups and small businesses. Mental well-being is a top priority for the founder, Emily Foucault, who recognizes the importance of mental health and the love a dog can provide. It seemed a natural fit for ThinkHatch to help people who are homeless and who feel comforted by the love of their pet. Thus, in December 2017, ThinkHatch partnered with Liberty Village Animal Hospital, Simply Laundry, and Park9 to launch #HelpOurPetsTO.
After running a short social media campaign and thanks to the generosity of Toronto residents, we delivered numerous bags of pet food, blankets, leashes, treats, collars and poop bags to the respite shelter operated by the Fred Victor Organization!
In 2020, supporting those in our community who need it most, along with their beloved fur-families, we will be collecting monetary donations. To ensure health and safety through COVID-19, we will not be accepting donations of physical items this year. We hope you will still support us, through our GoFundMe page, so we can continue to offer the warmest support to those in need!
It takes a village to make a difference,
we are so thankful for your support.
