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.

Save the date! Saturday, Aug. 5 we will host our ENORMOUS GARAGE SALE!!!
Please consider saving gently used items to donate to our sale. We will have drop off times during the week prior to Aug. 5. Please understand, this sale is HUGE and we simply don’t have space to keep things in storage until August so we respectfully ask you to hang on to them yourself until the drop off times. We appreciate all donations! Unfortunately, due to safety concerns we cannot accept baby car seats, unframed glass/mirrors or window blinds. We are looking forward to this awesome summer fundraiser!!

Donate New or 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 pounddog.ca@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.
