    Hello everyone ,I have a question about starting a charity or foundation in Canada . Which is better to start , how do you go about starting it , what are the personal benefits of operating one aside from the personal feeling of doing good .

    I am not too well versed on the subject but have come across this helpful tutorial while I was researching the possibility of starting a charitable foundation myself.

    How to start a Canadian charity

    I hope this helps!

    Not sure if I'm understanding what you're implying: personal benefits as in what do you stand to gain...from a charity???

    No what I ment was do i run it like a buisness and put the profits back into the charity and as with a buisness there are tax breaks and such or is it run completly different IDK never done this before . BTW the charity will be for people who have had their pets attacked and injured and they need to take them to the vet but have no means of paying for the surgeries and care . We will help out with some of the costs associated with such cases . What do you think of this type of charity ? Is there enough need for such a charity , how much do you think the recipients of the charity would care to have this service available . Is there such a charity already , dont want to step on any toes as it is hard enough to get funds to keep charities afloat as it is .

    First off, I had no idea L4P had this section.

    Secondly, do you really think there is a need for "attacked pets"? Unless you live in a native reserve where the dogs run wild, I don't think there is much point. Also there are plenty of shelters and foster families for pets (including my wife and I) that see alot of pets that get dropped off, and we take them in until they find an owner (rather then just being put down) The shelter and foster programs receive some donations to help pay for the medical, the foster homes like ours have to pay for everything else like food.

    Lastly, I've also thought about starting a useless charity to funnel my money through for tax purposes. I thought about it for about 5 minutes one day...

    A : I think you have missed the point , Its not about me as much as its about helping pets get the help they need
    B: there is a need due to people that cant control their own pets and/or choose to train them to be aggressive , as well as wildlife attacks
    C: The SCPA is a great program for rescueing strays and taking in unwanted animals however they DO NOT provide funds to citizens for vetrinary treatments . EVER.
    D: lastly I dont live on a native reserve, not that there is anything wrong with that if thats where you choose to live , I live in a very upscale area of large homes ! There has been quite a few of these type of incidents within 500 miles of where I live and from the reports that I has personally seen a number of these have had large vet bills that the caused a number of families to have unexpected hard financial times due to very high vet bills . I dont think this is fair and also dont think that the vets themselves should have to absorb the costs.
    This is not a way for me to start a usless chairity or to start one for tax purposes , it is all about the animals care period , I dont care to make a dime from this .

    Have you heard that 94% of people do not have pet insurance due to either lack of knowlege about its availability or in most cases the inability of being able to afford it due to the hard economic times .
    I am trying to provide something for these people to help the financial burden on them !! If you dont agree with helping others then maybe you are in the wrong section
