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

Bottle Drive to Support PDR. Save your empathies and help us save dogs. We are looking for alcohol bottles and cans to raise money for the dogs in our care. We will return the empties on your behalf with all the proceeds going to the dogs in the rescue. This fundraiser is taking place in the next few weeks so please start saving your bottles and cans. Please email us at pounddog.ca@gmail.com or PM us on Facebook if you can help with this fundraiser. We have convenient drop off locations across Waterloo Region and Oxford County.

Save your empties to save the dogs!

Bottle Drive in April and May

Please donate your alcohol and wine bottles, beer and alcohol drink cans, and wine bladders. You could be even more helpful by separating the bottles and cans and writing the number of cans on the bag.

If you can help, please email us at pounddog.ca@gmail.com or DM us on Facebook.




Our First Ever Golf Tourney!

July 23, 2022

We are super excited to announce our first ever PDR Golf Tourney as PDR celebrates 10 years of saving dogs!

Tell your golf buddies and save the date. It will be held at the beautiful Innerkip Highlands Golf Course.

We need prizes donated or sponsors. If you can help, please email pdrfundraising@gmail.com. Prize donations don’t have to be golf-related or dog-related, anything will be greatly appreciated, such as gift cards, large items, small items, anything we can make into prizes to be won. Thanks!!!


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.

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



All Pound Dog Rescue dogs are spayed/neutered, vaccinated, heartworm/Lyme tested, dewormed, and microchipped prior to adoption. 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.
