Homeward Bound Rescue

Homeward Bound Rescue

Homewardbound Rescue is a small scale dog rescue group dedicated to rescuing dogs in need. We love the Flat Faced Dogs! This comprises of Bulldogs, Pugs, Boxers, Mastiffs, Bostons and many others. We also take in other breeds when there's a need to help other rescue organizations when they are full.

All dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated/health checked and micro chipped before adoption.

Our dogs are more often than not are owner surrenders, puppy mills and local shelters.

Speaking of Dogs Rescue

Speaking of Dogs Rescue

Speaking of Dogs Rescue Program (SODR) is a registered charity run solely by volunteers. SODR is an all-breed rescue with a focus on senior dogs that is dedicated to assisting dogs from shelters and, when space permits, helping dogs who are surrendered by their owner.  Our dogs are lovingly cared for in foster homes until we find well-matched forever homes.  All dogs entering our rescue are spayed or neutered and have all their medical needs attended to (e.g. heartworm test, bloodwork, vaccines, microchipped, dewormed and often our older friends need dentals). Our adoption process entails a written application, a telephone interview, reference and veterinary checks and an in-home visit. We are committed to placing our dogs in homes that are responsible, caring and compassionate. We actively fundraise in an effort to help cover rescue related costs such as medical care, grooming, boarding, food and supplies (such as microchips, collars, harnesses and leashes). We are always in search of new foster homes where a dog can be cared for and loved until a permanent home is found. Adopt one of our dogs today!

Standard Poodles in Need

Standard Poodles in Need

Standard Poodles In Need, Rescue & Re-home (SPIN) is a Canadian non-profit, foster-based organization primarily concerned with the welfare of homeless or unwanted standard poodles but also with the welfare of toy poodles, mini-poodles and poodle mixes.

Action Volunteers for Animals

Action Volunteers for Animals

Action Volunteers for Animals (AVA) is an all-volunteer run charitable animal rescue dedicated to improving the lives of stray and feral animals. We have been a registered charity since 1981 and operate thanks to generous donations by individuals and pet charities.  We work predominantly in the GTA (Peel Region, York Region, Durham Region, Hamilton and Toronto) and are sometimes able to help cats in other areas of Ontario and Quebec.

Many animals are homeless until AVA comes to their aid. Rescued cats are vaccinated and spayed or neutered. Many of the rescued cats also require medical treatment; each year we pay for surgeries, x-rays, medications, blood tests, dental procedures and hospitalizations. Cats are then placed in foster homes until they are ready to be adopted to their forever homes.
