Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue

Hamilton, ON

Our Mission

Our mission is to save as many lives as possible, to treat the pets are our own while in our care, and to ensure they are adopted to committed loving families who will be able to meet the specific needs of the pet they are adopting, as well as ensuring the specific pet will fulfill the wants and desires of the adoptive family as a pet.

The name “Ugly Mutts” is our tongue-in-cheek way of saying that every pet is deserving of a second chance regardless of their appearance, size or breeding.

Whether you are looking to adopt a pet or needing to find a new home for your pet, Ugly Mutts Dog Rescue will ensure the best options for you and your family!

Adoption Policy

While it is understood that we care passionately about all animals, we care just as much about the people and ensuring that whatever pet they adopt is in fact a good choice for their situation.

Prior to meeting an adoptable pet, you must submit an application for approval. Submitting an application does not necessarily mean that you will be accepted as the adopter for that pet. There is no commitment to adopt by yourself or the rescue until an application has been approved, you have met and had an opportunity to spend some time with the pet, and it is agreed by both yourself and the rescue that the pet is a good choice for your situation.
