Our mission


Dear animal lover, 


Thank you for visiting our website! As a Canadian not-for-profit organization, our mission is to raise funds for animal rescues in Ontario and Quebec. Since 2012, we have raised funds to help rescues buy food and supplies, pay for vet bills, and implement a trap neuter-and-spay program for cats. We are dedicated volunteers who believe every pet should have a loving and caring home.


Guardian’s Best is also dedicated to celebrating people who have adopted their pets. This is why we started the Rescue Heroes campaign. As seen on our Instagram page, we honour people who have adopted their pets, reducing the stigma surrounding pet adoption. 


We also host Party 4 Paws in downtown Toronto, and it has become our largest fundraising event of the year. Other fundraising efforts include a Be Kind to Animals to pin, fridge magnets, and t-shirts.  Furthermore, our efforts have helped the following animal rescues across Ontario and Quebec: 




Free Korean Dogs 


Canine Haven 

Team Cat 

Toronto Cat Rescue 

Little ResQ 

Bruno Project 

Stray to Play 

Niagara Dog Rescue






Rosie’s Animal Adoption

She’s the sweetest Lemon you’ll ever meet, according to her owner, Taylor Remez. Lemon, who is a mixed breed, was adopted from Canine Haven Rescue in 2017, and immediately fit right into Taylor’s life. Read on to find out more about the adoption process, Lemon’s school trips, and the funniest parts of Lemon’s personality. 

How old is Lemon, and how long have you had her?


Lemon is 3.5-half-years-old right now! She was eleven months old when I got her, and it will be three years of having her this coming September. I actually stumbled upon her on Petfinder, and it took me to Canine Haven’s website.

Look at Charlie! You’d never guess he was rescued from a meat factory in South Korea. But, now living in Toronto’s High Park neighbourhood, Charlie has become a “hip check ninja,” according to his owner, John Bory, who adopted him from KOCA Dog Rescue in September 2019. Read on to find out more about Charlie’s adoption tale, and about how he’s two different dogs — depending on where Charlie is. 

How old is Charlie and how long have you had him? 


We have had Charlie, a jindo-kooiker mix, since September 2019, when he was almost 3-years-old. We found him on Petfinder initially, and submitted an application on the KOCA Dog Rescue website.
