How we're different
Redemptions Paws (RP) is a Canadian registered charity that dives headfirst into areas affected by disaster situations for the sole purpose of assisting at-risk dogs – affected by natural disasters – find homes.
Climate Change &
We are the only dog rescue in the world focused on the impacts of climate change and natural disasters on homeless dogs.
We have a special affinity for dogs with medical and physical needs, with a particular adoration for dogs who have visual and hearing impairments.
We take health very seriously. All our dogs see a vet before coming to Canada and upon arriving.
At Redemption Paws everyone is safe, regardless of their age, disabilities, ethnic origin, gender & gender identity, marital status, race, religion, sexual orientation, and socioeconomic status.

What our adopters are saying
We've pulled out 250+ dogs from dire situations. Here's what their forever-families are saying.
Brent, Guillermo and Rex
“We couldn't have asked for a more perfect match when we were lucky enough to adopt Rex. Right from the beginning, Rex adjusted into our family like he had always been there. The description provided from both RP and his foster family was spot on - which I think is what made the transition so smooth. We knew what to expect and he was exactly what we were looking for! The adoption process itself was pretty quick but also thorough (which goes to show they really do make sure the rescue pup is going to be happy in his forever home). We are forever grateful for RP for saving Rex's life and bringing him into ours. He's brought us endless entertainment, laughs, and kisses. He definitely keeps us busy, but it's more than worth it!”
Alaina, Laurence & The Duchess
“The moment we brought The Duchess in to our home as a foster we knew she was where she belonged. We could never thank Redemption Paws enough for bringing this perfect little snuggle bug in to our lives and for continuing to help other dogs like her that deserve all the love in the world! We've felt so much joy and support from the RP community that we continue to engage with other volunteers and adopters months after the adoption process was complete. I promise, you won't regret joining the ranks of our Happy Tails!”
Marina & Jade
“Jade was my 7th foster with Redemption Paws so the adoption experience itself was easy, just fill up the adoption form, the adoption fees... The rest had already been done before I became foster. The one thing I love about Redemption Paws is the efforts made to find the best family for the pups. All the forms, phone calls, home visits, meet and greet, all is done to ensure as much as possible a perfect match between adopters and dogs.”
