Welcome To Ottawa Dog Rescue
Ottawa Dog Rescue was founded in August 2013 by a group of dedicated dog-lovers and experienced rescuers.  We are an all-breed, foster-based rescue in the nation’s capital who have dedicated ourselves to helping abandoned, abused and surrendered dogs find well suited forever homes.

Our mission is to be a transparent, accountable and professionally run non-profit organization dedicated to rescuing dogs at risk in the Ottawa area.  We are starting out small but already have a great team of committed volunteers, foster homes and local veterinarians to help us achieve our goals. All of our rescue dogs are provided with temporary foster home care until we find them well-matched and carefully screened forever homes.

Along with rescue, we aim to educate by bringing awareness to responsible pet ownership and the importance of spay/neutering.  Rescue is about saving lives, and we will do what it takes to do rescue right, because too many lives are lost due to a lack of public awareness and resources. We want to be part of the solution and will strive to make a difference one dog at a time.

The rescue is organized as an Ontario and Federal non-profit charitable corporation #1899733. Our Charitable number is 83472 7232 RR0001.
