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 Canada. Since 2012, we have raised $20,000 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. Our campaigns and events include fundraisers in Montreal and Toronto, the Quebec Animal Rescuer of the Year Award, a Be Kind to Animals pin you can purchase with a donation online (and also receive a certificate of appreciation).

Our fundraising has benefited Canadian animal rescues:

  • Gerdy's Rescues & Adoptions

  • PetitsPawz Cat Refuge of Montreal

  • Rosie Animal Adoption

  • Refuge pour chats de Verdun

  • Nali Animal Orphanage

  • SPCA Montérégie

From picture to picture perfect home


Interview by Melanie Dziengo


All that separated Jennifer Guest and her future dog, Willa, was a 5,000 km road trip. So, she travelled from Toronto to Houston, Texas in October 2018 to meet the dog she only knew from a picture. Read on to learn about her road trip, how Willa’s name came to be, and what it’s like to adopt a dog in a different country.  

I adopted Willa Houston from a rescue organization in Houston, called Dachshund Rescue, Education & Adoption Mission (DREAM).

That was in October 2018, when she was 1.5-years-old, so she will be 4-years-old this year. They chose July 13 as her birthday, and I’ve kept that up, but I tend to celebrate her “gotcha” day more, which is October 4.

When life gives you a Lemon

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.

High Park's Hip Check Ninja

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.
