PACS is a non-profit organization that operates solely from fundraising, donations, and assistance from individuals/groups who support our mission.  Food, shelter supplies/maintenance, medicine, and veterinary bills are costly. All donations help stray and feral cats in need.

There are several ways you can donate.  PACS appreciates all donations.  Charitable receipts will be provided for donations greater than $20.00.

 One time gift

You may make a one-time donation to PACS.  You can donate electronically, or by mail to Pierre’s Alley Cat Society, PO Box 51081, RPO Rockingham Ridge, Halifax, Nova Scotia B3M 4R8. 


You may sponsor a Dockyard Cat for one (or more) months for $35.00 per month or for one year for $420.  This amount covers food, vitamins, veterinary care, and shelter.  Junior sponsorships are also available for children and youth.

Select the Dockyard Cat that you would like to sponsor and submit the payment (make sure you indicate which cat you would like to sponsor).

You will receive a sponsorship certificate with the cat’s name and picture.

Tribute gifts

You may honor a friend or an occasion with a tribute gift to PACS.

Examples of tribute gifts:

– Retirement – commemorates a career

– Birthday – acknowledges a special day

– Wedding – celebrates a special couple`s wedding day

– In memoriam – honors someone or a pet who has passed away

– Holiday – observes a special holiday occasion

PACS will be pleased to send an acknowledgement card on your behalf.

 Legacy gifts

A legacy gift will provide PACS with the resources to help even more cats, and to move closer to the reality of establishing a sanctuary.

Consult a lawyer if you would like to include PACS in your will. You may choose to bequeath a sum of money, property, or items from your estate.

It is also important to include provisions in your will for continued care of your pet.

You may designate PACS as your charity of choice when giving through the United Way.  You will need our address and charitable registration number.

Life Insurance

PACS can benefit from the payment of a life insurance policy. Consult a financial advisor if you choose to name PACS as a beneficiary.
