We a are small, foster based, all breed Canadian Dog Rescue.  Our mission is to help in saving and rehoming dogs in need, following our motto 'The Right Dog for The Right Home'.  We assist in the rehoming of dogs, and provide rescue for Canadian dogs that need our help.  We also assist our rescue partner in Quebec to help in saving dogs off Northern Reserves in native communities.  Together, we can make a difference, one dog at a time!

Our Rescue retreat in Colborne, Ont is a temp home for incoming dogs to be assessed and vetted before foster. We welcome visitors anytime!
