Farley Foundation

the Farley Foundation

Helping People. Healing Pets.

The Foundation offers financial assistance to veterinary clinics in Ontario to help cover the cost of providing necessary veterinary care for pets belonging to seniors receiving the Federal Guaranteed Income Supplement (GIS) or people with disabilities who receive the Ontario Disability Support Payment (ODSP), and who cannot otherwise afford treatment for their pets.

Farley is the name of a character developed by Canadian artist and cartoonist Lynn Johnston. The beloved sheepdog was a Patterson family member in Lynn Johnston's syndicated comic strip, For Better or For Worse®. The name of the Farley Foundation is a tribute to the sheepdog who eventually died in the comic while attempting to save April Patterson, who had fallen in a ravine.

The Farley Foundation is grateful to Lynn Johnston for lending the Farley image to the Foundation.
