In North America alone, every year, people buy 17 million pets.
In North America, every year, 3 to 4 million healthy dogs and cats are killed in shelters.
This is 10,000 every day!
This is why we do what we do……
No one can do everything but everyone can do something!
A little about us
Niagara Dog Rescue is a non-profit, volunteer-based organization dedicated to helping homeless and unwanted dogs find a new home. We focus on dogs at immediate risk of being put down at high kill shelters. Any potential fosters or adopters are fully screened through vet, reference and home checks. Adoption fees are $400 (including GST) to help cover the cost of rescue, and includes spay/neuter, HW testing and treatment (if necessary), rabies and DHLPP vaccines, and microchip, prior to adoption.
We a foster based rescue. This means we do not have a facility, dogs are pulled from shelters and put in to comfortable homes until they are adopted.
We need fosters in Niagara Region or West GTA to love and care for the dogs we rescue until they are adopted.
Each foster volunteer allows us to save one more dog and help him/her find a loving forever home.
Fostering is ideal for families considering adoption but who are not yet sure. Fostering provides them an opportunity to get to know the dog and how s/he fits in the family. This allows them to make an informed decision about a long-term adoption.
