Why We’re Different

What makes Redemption Paws different from other rescues?

  •  we are the only rescue organization in Canada that specializes in helping dogs impacted by natural disasters and climate change
  •  we help ALL dogs, regardless of breed, age or gender; mutts are limited editions and we love them
  • we are volunteer run; there are no paid employees — the donations you give go directly to the dogs
  • no dogs are hopeless, 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 do our own transports; we personally try to make the dogs trip as calm and pleasant as possible in temperature controlled vans with walks every 3 hours until we arrive
  • all our dogs see a vet before leaving their destination and upon arriving in Canada; we take no risks when it comes to health
  • we fill our empty vans on transports full of donations to bring to local community rescues in need of assistance
  • when we’re not needed at a disaster site, we help local dogs here in Toronto and keep helping dogs that have been displaced, regardless of where they are from
