Pound Dog Rescue.


Who we are

Pound Dog Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer run organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating, and re-homing stray, abandoned and surrendered dogs in Southern Ontario pounds and low resource shelters.  It is our mission to adopt these dogs out to loving, secure homes so that they never again deal with the devastation of being lost, homeless, or abandoned and facing certain euthanasia due to space limitations at overwhelmed pound facilities. 


View our dogs who are ready to be adopted. Learn about our adoption contract, which includes an adoption donation fee and other contractual requirements.


We are in urgent need of fosters as we can only save as many dogs as we have foster homes for. All costs are covered by Pound Dog Rescue.


Donations over $20.00 will receive a tax receipt. We are a registered charity in Ontario, #81487 2230 RR00001 Pound Dog Rescue- Ontario.



There are many ways to get involved with Pound Dog Rescue and we are always looking for new volunteers to join our amazing team!
