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. 

Fundraisers & Events

Donate Used Surgical Wear


We love the surgical wear option for our dogs to wear after their spays and neuters. It is so much nicer for the dogs than wearing cones. The only downfall is the cost, which really adds up for a small rescue. Do you have one you are not using? Would you donate it to us? We need all sizes. We will even repair a bit of damage.

If you are in the Kitchener Waterloo area, we will gladly pick up your donation. Contact us by email at pound.dog@gmail.com.

Or, if you are out of our area, surgical wear is lightweight to mail and regular postage should cover it. Please mail to Pound Dog Rescue, PO Box 261, Drumbo  Ont. N0J 1G0.

The adoption donation structure is as follows: Puppies under 6 months of age: $800, Dogs 6 months to 2 years of age: $700, Dogs over 2 years of age: $600. The adoption donation is applied to assist in the costs of veterinary care and the overall care of the dog.
