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.

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 email@example.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.
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.

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.
You can donate securely through PayPal or by using a credit card. Donations over $20 will receive a tax receipt. We are a registered charity in Ontario, #81487 2230 RR0001 Pound Dog Rescue- Ontario.
